How fast is the Internet connection?

The connection is comparable to average DSL / Cable modem service, but your speed will vary depending on traffic from other Wi-Fi users in the library and beyond. MPL uses 802.11n access points, and has a fiber optic connection to the Internet. The wireless network has been allocated a portion of this connection, which is shared among users, so your speed will vary.
