Charges for data plans on the UT network will be eliminated, the University announced on Monday.

Previously, students, faculty and staff paid for limited individual network data plans to use internet with the UT network. Beginning this fall semester, this fee is eliminated and there will no longer be a limit.

Christopher Sedore, vice president and chief information officer, announced the change in a post on the UT Information Technology Services page. President Gregory Fenves tweeted the post Tuesday afternoon.

"We know how important high speed connectivity is to our community,” Sedore said. "We hope that this will help kick off a fantastic year of teaching, learning, and research!"

This change will be reflected in the coming days.
