University of Notre Dame Fremantle Wireless Internet Improvement
The students at the University of Notre Dame in Fremantle have had to endure poor internet for a long time. There are two key problems with the internet at the university: 1. The wireless is very poor in terms of the signal strength throughout the university becoming non-functional during times of high traffic attempting to access the network, and in some areas of the university including classrooms having limited or no access at all. 2. The internet has limited access to many functional elements of various currently used software applications. E.g. the "mail" app does not work on all apple products - products used by a large proportion of students around the university. This petition is asking two things of the university: 1. Immediate changes to the budget to improve the connection & functionality of the internet to improve functionality as well accessibility. Immediate upgrades to improve both the functionality & access for students, staff and visitors of the university. 2. Provide a report to the students which details why the internet access at the university is so poor and what current procedures are being put in place to improve the connection capabilities, speeds & functionalities. In addition to reporting on the logistical elements of the internet we also would like to know what financial resources are being put towards the improvement of the internet in the past, present & what are the goals for its improvement moving forward including a timeline of improvements. The University of Notre Dame Fremantle has a proud tradition of providing high quality tertiary education for its current students in today's technology driven society. The students of the university feel that it is vital that the internet & connectivity available to it match the universities drive to set a high standard of education. It is unacceptable that a university of this quality have such a disproportionately poor internet service - rendering its students and staff unable to maximise the learning experience - by missing out on the unique education experiences that such technology provides.
