We the students, in order to make a more perfect institution, have unified our efforts in order to bring awareness and change concerning our sub-par internet connection. Day after day we struggle to accomplish the assignments we are given, access websites necessary for our education, and even upload the documents required to obtain our grade. These three basic, yet crucial needs are hindered by the infamous speed (or lack of thereof) of the internet provided by this institution. Not only are the constituents of this institution being hurt by the poor quality of the internet, but the staff as well. The internet has become an unprecedented and necessary tool for modern education. A tool which teachers, whom are tasked with the instruction and preparation of the professionals of tomorrow, cannot use to its full potential due to its slow speed, and bad reliability.
Will the poor internet connection become another defining characteristic of Antillean? No promotional video will do justice to the reality the students, both those living in the Dorm and outside, live on a daily basis. It is our voice that will carry the university’s legacy and echo the administration’s works. We are the ones that will promote the university once we leave its confines, but what are we to promote if all we are offered are trials, and tribulations with the most trivial of things?

Joshua Leonor, Puerto Rico2 years ago Comments: To whom it may concern: Though not a student, I agree that a change does need to be made with the internet service provider to the UAA grounds, immediately. Though only two exist in Mayaguez I know UAA has the leverage, as a large institution, to contract a much better service so that our community of professionals, future and current, can have access to the tools we need to be successful. As taught to always achieve the highest of standards we can, I believe it is our duty to demand them back. That is the only way progress can occur and an acceptable level of service can be attained. I would suggest looking into AT&T who actually have broadband on the island and operate on a special needs basis. I hope this petition is effective and that a suitable service can be found to cover our most basic of needs. Sincerely, Joshua Leonor I wrote this on my phone. My internet wasn't loading.
