The survey calculated how much of each campus was covered by wireless, the number of undergraduate students, and the computer-to-student ratio.
David Letterman's alma mater, Ball State University of Muncie, Ind., is the top-ranked unwired campus, said Intel Tuesday as it released its second annual wireless survey.
"Across the country, wireless campus networks are dramatically changing the way students, faculty, and staff learn and work,” said Richard Beckwith, an ethnographer with Intel’s research group, in a statement.
The survey calculated how much of each campus was covered by wireless, the number of undergraduate students, and the computer-to-student ratio. Only schools with more than 1,000 students were included.
The top ten was rounded out by Western Michigan, University of Akron, Dartmouth, Carnegie Mellon, Bridgewater State College (Bridgewater, Mass.), St. Johns, Case Western (Cleveland), Bryant (Smithfield, R.I.), and Trinity (San Antonio).
Since 2004's survey, most campuses have made significant progress toward going wireless, noted Intel. Of the top 50 schools, 74 percent have a 100 percent wireless coverage; in 2004, only 14 percent of the top 50 schools blanketed the whole campus. On average, the top 50 cover 98 percent of their grounds with wireless access, up from 64 percent last year.
