Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Evening all,

    Captain Blackadder will shortly be attending the MPOC course at Southwick Park and wonders if anyone would be so kind as to verify what internet facilities are provided in the Officers' Mess there?

    Many thanks!
  2. Just take DvDs or preload porn onto your laptop, works just as well
  3. Unless facilities have changed in the past couple of months, don't try a Voda internet dongle on your laptop. You'll be stood in the same three square feet of South Park as the other few hundred who want a useable signal.
  4. There are two internet terminals and free wireless in the TV room in Southwick House

    p.s. 3 is excellent on camp
  5. There's 2 internet computers upstairs in the main mess. They have a wireless router so you can bring your laptop in. You DE or VT mate?
  6. Thanks for the feedback mate. I'm a VT. Can you get access to the wireless router from the bedrooms or do you need to sit in the computer room to get a signal?

    I know to steer clear of Vodafone dongles but do any others work that you're aware of?

    Many thanks!
  7. 3 Dongles are your best bet, I had one there not too long ago. Good reception on that part of camp. 3 are doing a month by month contract option that doesnt tie you down. 15 bucks per month for 5GB.
  8. Can verify this, 3 have the best signal in this area, and the monthly contract is cheap enough! The Mess Wireless does reach most rooms in the House itself, but some rooms are to far away. Any rooms in Leigh Mallory or Eisenhower, not a hope!!
