On January 17th, I'm going to be away from home for four months for mandatory academy training for my new job. I'll be staying in a single room dorm that I'm told will have WiFi that I can opt in for roughly $120 for three months.
Sounds like a good deal, except I've also been told that the WiFi they give you is pretty crappy. I'm planning to bring a few devices over to help pass the time (my Apple TV, my iPad, and possibly my PC an an extra console, depending on how big the living quarters are). I don't require anything crazy, but I would at least like to be able to stream content at a decent speed.
Since I seem allowed to use whatever service I want with the phone line, I wanted to ask about suggestions on what kind of temporary internet service would be best for me. I'm not looking to break the bank for convenience, but I would like to see what the options are for getting a non-terrible service in a small room.
What would I need to make this happen (I assume a modem and router)? What service provider and service plan would be recommended? Would I be able to use the existing service in my house (Comcast) to include this dorm, or would I'd be better off opting into a whole new service situated in that area?
