The Student Guide to Staying Connected

Pretty soon children will be born digitally compatible, like in The Matrix. Unfortunately, this hasn't happened yet. (…or has it? Nevermind.) Regardless, we all need to know the best ways to stay connected without being gouged. We've come up with a list of questions you should ask to make sure you are getting the best deals and best service. Are there differences in providers? Should you buy or lease your phone? What happens when you travel? How much data do you need?

The world is changing, and nowhere is this more evident than with technology. A short decade ago, every student moving in to Co-op housing ordered a home phone line. Now - not one. But while our choices have expanded, and we have services and capabilities we couldn't have even known would exist back then, it's not like everything is straightforward - or cheap. So check out our Staying Connected guide, available for free in the Documents section, to help you navigate the brave new world. Be ready for the Minority Report.
