Many of us students here at Antioch have experienced the maddening frustration resulting from the sporadic and unreliable internet connection at Antioch University New England. Whether it be attempting to stream videos or show prezis for class presentations, or just trying to download literature critical for theses research, it is almost always a hair-pulling hassle.
As Antioch is an expensive private graduate school and fast, reliable internet connectivity is now ubiquitous in the United States we feel there is absolutely no reason why this connectivity issue should persist well over 6 months since it started (I first noticed it at the start of the fall 2013 semester).
This petition is to make Antioch's IT and the Powers That Be aware that we are frustratedand unnecessarily distractedfrom our research by this problem. Whole cities are covered by wi-fi - why is Antioch's one building having such issues?
Please sign this petition if you share in this frustration and believe that lapses in internet connectivity should be rare, not commonplace and accepted! The horrible internet connectivity at Antioch has become a running joke - it's time to do something about it!
