New finance regulation

According to the plenary meeting on March 9th, a new, uniform finance regulation will take effect from April 1st 2016. Beforehand, amount and mode of the contributions differed depending on the local division of the AG DSN.

Summary: The simplest method for you to pay is to transfer 21€ to the respective bank account at the beginning of each semester.

Details:

  • Contributions are due monthly
  • The contributions are due the last day of each month
  • If the membership starts after the 14th of a month, the contribution for this month is omitted
  • The contribution amount is 3.50€, which is equivalent to 21€ per semester

The main motivation for this change is to make the contributions more uniform and fair. Members who stay only for a few months will only have to pay for the time they are actually using the network, no registration fee is due anymore.

Furthermore we are working hard to establish the same high-quality (gigabit to each room) network everywhere, especially at the formerly cheaper Gerok-, Borsberg- and Zeunerstraße. We have already put substantial effort into these upgrades.

Finally, uniform regulations will help us to save on time spent on administrative tasks, so that we can provide faster responses on support inquiries and work more on technical improvements.

You can find the full regulation here, please feel free to contact us.

Today from 7pm onward we will swap out the active components of our network at Zeunerstraße. This will result in network outages, as always we will try to keep these at a minimum.

After restructuring the cabling at Zeunerstraße lately, we now follow up with the active components. Our aim is the introduction of a unified administration for the majority of the students' network, to make sure we can offer you short support response times and a reliable network in the future. If you have any questions, please get in contact!

Hey technophiles, finally Germany has managed to get into the FTTH Council rankings for the first time. You can read more about what this means and how the development of fibre optic infrastructure is going in this article.

Fun Fact: We have been using fiber optics in our student halls now for years ;)

Dear members,

Based on the decision of our December 9th Sektionsversammlung, the division Wundtstraße now has a new additional constitution which you can access here. This does not imply notable changes for you. The intention of the new constitution was to simplify juristical concerns, since all relevant things are covered by our general constitution

Your AG DSN.

It seems like the university's connection to the internet is unavailable at the moment, which means only local services are available right now. We are investigating and will try to keep you updated.

Update: Connectivity returned 2015-12-10T01:25, everything should be back to normal by now.
