Background: The University of North Texas has partnered with Apogee, an Austin-based provider of on-campus residential networks in higher education, in order to provide residential network service. All residence halls have fast, reliable Internet connectivity and 24/7 customer support through Apogee's service called MyResNet.

Apogee also provides UNT students, who live on campus in the residence halls, high-speed access to the university’s networked services. Access to services outside the campus network through the Internet are provided at 2 Mbps, megabits per second, download. Each student has the option to upgrade to faster speeds through the MyResNet website for an upgrade fee.
