As part of summer 2016 network improvement projects, internet bandwidth at Aberystwyth University has increased from 2 Gigabits per second (Gbps) to 4 Gbps. This improved connection not only provides faster download speeds for staff and students, but has enabled us to increase our daily (fair usage) download limits to 30 gigabytes (GB) per day from 12 GB. This is the equivalent of streaming full high definition for up to 10 hours a day.
