quite new to me (and that view is perhaps applicable to many universities
in my country). Item 3 is usually what is on the list for institution from
my localty. Below is the order that is experienced

2) We understand the need to change but scare of security implications

3) Our ISP is hindering our change due to extra recurring charges

4) Our management may not approve extra cost of internet (its not something
to feel and touch like classrooms :))
