Rez, no internet. Stream 3g instead.

Hey guys, I am most likely going to McGill next year and have read that there is no free internet in the residences (unlike the free wifi in school buildings).

Apparently the cost for internet access is $50/month. This is pretty steep for one person (although I have read that the internet is quite quick). An option I have is to stream data from my iphone to my laptop as I do when at school right now (high school). Reaching my data limit is unlikely as I have 6GB of data in my current plan but the only issue would be speed (3G).

How do you feel about taking this route? Are there any other cost effective options?

Thanks!
