Facts[edit | edit source]

  • The Load of Fun building provides wireless internet, which can be picked up in the Node with the SSID 'LoadOfFun'.
  • Speed tests show the connection is approximately 768kbps down and 256kbps up
  • The landlord, Sherwin, pays $50 a month for the service
  • Sherwin has said he is willing to upgrade or change to whatever service we want and only pay the difference in price between $50. So if we change to an $80 a month plan, we will only have to pay $30.
