I am not an Owl
The 1 Gbps link need not necessarily trickle down to the students. Like in our college which has had a link like that for all i can remember, yet the access to internet is pretty slow. All hostels have limited connections (speed capped at 2Mbps) And thats nothing to boast about, considering the fact that atleast 100 connections will be active at any given time from the same hostel. Think the same situation is gonna happen in these newly provided 1 Gbps links too.
