Slightly dissatisfied

The university Internet service has intermittent problems with DNS and quality of connection. I'm beginning to wonder how much trouble it would be to move elsewhere and sign up for Internet service with one of the commercial providers. I wonder when it would be feasible to consider that, since I've already paid the confirmation deposit for this term's lodging.

VOIP quality is really bad. I can hear my parents perfectly, but my voice is really choppy and delayed on their end. I think it's because we're allocated asymmetric bandwidth, which doesn't match my usage pattern. I upload nearly as much as I download (and none of that infringes anyone's copyrights! =) ).

Still, it's good that I've got a confirmed slot for the term. That allows me to enjoy my time in Toronto instead of scrambling to find an apartment...
