Internet service at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will soon become faster and more reliable. The university is preparing for the largest upgrade of the campus' computer network in a decade.

The university is working to double Internet connectivity and reliability for all computer users on its network. The fastest speeds will be available for researchers, who require enormous amounts of bandwidth.

UNL network manager Jim Hlava says a $1.5 million upgrade will provide Internet speeds twice as fast as currently available. It will also reduce the chances of an Internet outage.

In addition, UNL has received a nearly $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to expand its bandwidth to match top research universities across the country.
