PLEASE NOTE: STUDENT RESIDENCE HALL PHONES ARE NOT AFFECTED BY THIS CHANGE
After studying the voice mail usage logs and consulting with available students, we have decided to redirect the funds previously spent on student voice mail services and purchase additional Internet bandwidth instead. Eliminating student voice mail will save $9,000 per year in maintenance fees, and this will fund a 50% increase in bandwidth available to students. This fall, we will move from 200MB to 300MB in Internet bandwidth for students.
Student use of the voice mail service connected to the residence hall phones has declined to very near zero. In 2010-2011, only 10 students set up their voice mail boxes, and only two actually used their room phones to access their voice mail.
- Voice mail services are completely independent from the residence hall telephone services.
- Residence hall telephone service will continue unchanged.
