Network Outages

We have experienced an issue with the campus network this weekend that has caused service outages. We have identified the issue and are working to permanently resolve it prior to Monday morning. This work may cause additional brief network outages while we resolve the problem. 

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

SHSU Now a Speedtest Host

Have you felt that your Internet connection was a bit sluggish when on campus? If so, you can now use the SHSU hosted speedtest.net service. When on campus you are automatically directed to the SHSU host server by default.  This service will run a quick test and report your upload and download speeds back to you.

For comparison here are the fastest service providers in Texas: http://www.speedtest.net/awards/us/texas. In general cable consumers  see around 50 Mbps tops. If you’re getting better than that you are doing better than most.
