The university's Information Technology
Office, fearing financial, legal, and network problems (involving
bandwidth), blocked access to dialpad.com, which would allow
students to make free long distance calls over the Internet.

Students protested vigorously, bringing the matter to the
attention of national news media.  The
administration, after forming a joint student-staff committee to
discuss the matter, restored the site. They recommended increased
spending on bandwidth and suggested that university funding not
be made dependent on telephone revenues, but also stressed that
students should be informed of the imperfect state of the
technology related to phone calls over the Internet.
