The survey was sponsored by Intel Corporation and conducted by Bert Sperling, a researcher who specializes in collecting and analyzing data for the nationally known "Best Places" surveys.

The "Most Unwired College Campuses" survey findings are based on the number of hotspots, the number of undergraduates, number of computers and the computer to student ratio. The results were also based on the percentage of each college campus that is covered by wireless technology. The data was collected from university interviews and documents, and a variety of industry sources. A baseline of 100 college campuses was compiled in part from analysis of ìAmericaís Most Connected Campuses,î conducted by Princeton Review and published in Forbes.
