Listen to a conversation between two students.
Hey, Amy. Have you finished moving out of your dorm room yet?
Yeah, I'm all done-I moved into my new apartment off-campus yesterday.
How do you like it?
It's great. There's just one problem.
Well, I don't have an Internet connection at my new apartment. So I can't use the computer to access the Internet from my room.
And that's really important.
Right. I need it to do research for classes, e-mail people-stuff like that.
I use it almost every day.
So are you going to pay to get it installed in the apartment?
Well, I've called a couple Internet companies in the area and it's no trouble for them to send someone out to my apartment to install Internet service.
It's just the cost... I'd have to pay every month for the service.
Well, you know, there's always the computer center on campus. The computers there have free Internet access. Couldn't you use them?
I could. It's just that I don't have classes everyday,
so I'd have to go to campus on some days just to use the Internet.
And that computer center can get crowded sometimes.
So I'm not sure what to do.
