Yeah , about that.... i have seen for every one hour of studying , a student has to have 20 hours of entertainment , if not more ... there is no point in being hypocritical... except for a few , most students end of watching TB's of movies and TV in his tenure at a college , and they still the hardworking and innovative lot . One cannot but expect the most ideal case in colleges , it is only practical that most people will tend to divert towards leisure activities with such great academic burden . One cannot blame the education system for this , such is the case almost every where in the world.

The point is not entertainment and relaxation, son. The point is the FIRST THING which comes to yindan students mind is pr0n/pirated software/movies in a technology forum which are expected to know a better use of bandwidth. Noone mention that what things a student can do with the technology but are the first to jerk about those very stuff. That is hilarious.
Academic burden? :lol: Don't joke lol.

Typical Yindans. :lol::lol: No one thinks about the fact that it gives the chance and resources for students to innovate and contribute but the first thing comes to their mind is downloading bloody movies. :lol: No wonder the education system is messed up here.

Totally agree with you on that..... :+1:

But the thing is why we need a Gbps connection in colleges?a 128kbps connection fullfilles of downloading papers and documents easily well we need good latency and pings more than speeds we can of course host servers and do gaming competitions with 1Gbps wirelessly...

Find out what US universities do with their bandwidth.

Its about what students do with the bandwidth they get not what universities do. The only thing universities can do is provide that bandwidth to the students with some restrictions. Which almost every college in India does. They block Facebook, Torrents,etc. What else can a college do to regulate Internet use?

What makes you think that students in US don't use internet to watch porn or movies? What makes you think that they are completely dedicated to their studies & use Internet for educational purposes? What use did you make of the bandwidth that was provided to you when you were in college?

Hang on Hang on. For a start the bandwidth is provided to the Universities to facilitate the education for the students and provide them a platform for innovation, inventions, contributing to documentation, coding, etc. Secondly Universities also involve in research for solving complex problems and their infrastructure can be used for various scientific research among many other such things like mirrors to Linux repositories, hosting open source projects, giving students entrepreneurship oppurtunities and what not. That doesn't mean students should not use for leisure activities, but one should know where the priorities lie. And oh it's the Universities' bandwidth not the students' personal property or anything.

Never once did I assert US students didn't use bandwidth for their leisure. My only assertion is that people's lack of understanding of the fact that the bandwidth is provided for productive use and not for jerking around with porn and pirated movies. The first thing which comes to Indian students in a Technology forum who should definitely understand a better use for all those stuff, but they are instead obsessed with idiotic stuff. 0% innovation, 100% idioticy rather than say 10% innovation, 90% idioticty.

Colleges are correct by blocking Facebook, Twitter, and other such junk sites. Buy your own bandwidth for your own leisure. I don't agree with blocking ports (apart from torrents), since those would stifle innovation, and nor youtube (many educational and useful videos). But the idea is clear and correct.

Though I am not sure what is to be gained by any kind of personal/local discussion here, but whatever...
As for my college is concerned, I am not a hostler and secondly our hostlers got a bandwidth of square root of zero. But tell you what they do have access to movies, music, pron, software what not. What do they lack is actual platform and environment to develop their skills and even an oppurtunity to actually gain interest in science and technology.

So it comes to this, the students will gain access to leisure activities in spite of zero bandwidth provided to them and in spite of this the obsession with those very stuff which they already have frankly portrays the naivity and idioticity very much stereotyped with an Indian student (and there comes the term Yindan).

One more reason to go to college :D
I think that kinda bandwidth will actually make students divert away from studies.
You are gonna find students sitting everywhere with their eyes glued to their computer screens.
Youtube videos without buffering is the only thing that students are gonna make use of from this scheme. :D
But foreign universities were actually providing these kinda speeds for students literally since stone age :D

Additionally , using bittorent file sharing protocol for sharing copyrighted materials is forbidden by law , as is downloading music from piracy sites.
