    In the next to last paragraph, the reference to the 2006 initiative for the elimination of land-line dorm phones also included other technology driven decisions. For example, Cable TV (CaTV) was installed in every dorm room. Also, it provided for the saturation of WiFi service (wireless internet access) in each dorm for student access. Finally, cellular service was improved to compensate for the loss of land-lines by the installation of a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) for improving the service provided by the largest cellular service carriers of that time, Verizon, AT&T, and later, Sprint. This was one of the first large scale cellular DAS deployments on a major university campus at that time.
