2015 ResNet Report Now Available

April 20, 2015

Colleges and universities are increasing their restrictions on p2p sharing and music and video downloading for on-campus residents in an effort to keep up with increasing bandwidth demands, according to the newly released 2015 State of ResNet Report.

This year's report, which provides information on bandwidth use, wireless coverage, tech support and costs also found that:

  • More than one quarter of institutions currently outsource or are considering outsourcing their residential Internet.
  • While more than half of the institutions surveyed have residential network (ResNet) strategic plans, most business officers and housing officers do not have access to benchmark data.
  • The majority (70 percent) of institutions expect the cost of ResNet to rise over the next two years.
  • Nearly two-thirds of institutions are combining ResNet services with other campus IT services to reduce rising costs.

More than 500 higher education institutions participated in this year's survey.

The 2015 State of ResNet Report is produced by the Association for College and University Technology Advancement (ACUTA), the Association of College and University Housing Officers-International (ACUHO-I) and NACUBO. The full report can be found here.
