Internet Data Access: Most of the interview rooms outside the courtrooms have a yellow telephone jack with a 4 digit large font number. Connect your dial-up modem, dial 9 first, then your regular dial-up ISP. We were promised courtroom connections during construction but the promise was not kept. The building (including courtrooms) has steel double floors for easy network cable laying. The steel floors, however, severely restrict cell phone voice and data connections. The Peel Criminal Lawyers Association will continue to press for better Internet connectivity from courtrooms.
