61. Petition to Protect Online Neutrality

As Students Understanding Rights For Online Neutrality (SURFON) we are concerned about the future of our internet.

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and large corporations in Canada are threatening to alter the internet from its current state to a hierarchical, “gatekeeper network” whereby information will be filtered to the user based on its source, ownership, and destination.

62. Find And Punish Those Who Destroyed Trinity's Memorial Page

Please join our campaign to have action taken. This petition will be tabled and forwarded to Senator Conroy who is the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy and Deputy Leader of the Government in the Senate.

We need to stop the sick and twisted individuals who have been defacing Facebook groups that are set up for the memorials of children and others. These people need to have their whole IP Ranges banned and Senator Conroy needs to hear about it, so he can push for Facebook to take greater responsibility.

66. Criminal Justice Exams @ Virginia College Online

We, the students of Virginia College Online Education who are enrolled in the Criminal Justice Program, under the Director Dr. Charles T. Kelly, Jr. petition the Administrative Staff to freeze the “…restriction of time frame on taking exams down to 20 minutes for a fifty-question exam….”

We believe that this new exam process would be discouraging, and a great injustice to the “online students” overall education. We also take great offense to the possibility that under this new direction Virginia College Online as relinquished the fact that we are students that are not applying for positions which would require “…split-second decisions…” and as a learner would benefit greatly from the ability to have the necessary time to concentrate on the questions being asked.

Being afforded 1 to 2 hours for mid-term, and finial exams would also give the students a successful opportunity to successes in the program.

67. Request to increase network speed in Copper Beech Townhomes, Kalamazoo MI Branch

The internet connection currently being provided for the tenants at Copper Beech Townhomes in Kalamazoo, MI is insufficient for the number of tenants living in this complex.

A single 30mbps (megabit per second) connection is being divided among several hundred tenants, with no option to use your own ISP (internet service provider).

This is unacceptable, as the majority of the tenants in this complex are college students at KVCC (Kalamazoo Valley Community College), Kalamazoo College, or Western Michigan University and require an internet connection for their schoolwork. This is having an impact on the ability of these students to do their coursework.

We are requesting the managers of Copper Beech Townhomes, LLC. to increase the connection speed dramatically or to allow tenants to aquire their own internet connections in exchange for a rent reduction.

A minimum speed of 1.5mbps per tenant is a typical minimum speed for high speed internet services, and this would be acceptable to the undersigned. To clarify, this speed is per tenant, not per household.

68. Make Myspace Chat Available Again

At one time, Myspace had a feature known as Myspace Chat, which allowed an extensive range of communication between many people.

Myspace Chat was divided into many different categories based on common interests such as Culture, Arts and Literature, Fashion, Religion and Philosophy, Automotive and many more such topics. Each of these "catagories" were further divided into even more specific subjects, allowing people to find others who were genuinely intereseted in the same hobbies or subject matter. If two people wished to further communicate, a link to their profile was available, as well as the option to block inappropriate users.

In the presence of such competition as Facebook and Twitter, Myspace has lost many of its original, unique features such as this one. In place of Myspace Chat, Myspace suggests that users use an app or application that allows for a very limited and more inappropriate chat room environment. Applications, of course, are one of the prominent highlights of Facebook, and further mark Myspace's fall from originality.

69. We say NO to permanent ISP-level internet filtering

The Australian government's ISP-level internet filter is a step back into the dark ages, besides existing as overlord censorship. Here is why:

- permanent ISP-level internet filters will reduce internet speeds by 30% to 40%

- reduction in web speeds will make innovative online businesses, and web development businesses nearly impossible to conduct, thus forcing these companies to relocate overseas

- the Australian public will have no control over what is filtered out, which is akin to fascist levels of censorship.

74. Fix Internet speeds for Griffith University on-campus students!

Star tech. Griffith University on-campus students shudder at the thought of the words. Many a pain has been caused by slow internet, lack of network, shaped downloading speeds, random drop-outs and inability to access the intranet, which is necessary in order to complete our courses.

We need a change. We need reliable, fast internet, preferably with a network. Otherwise, we shall resort to running ethernet cables throughout our flats, increasing the chances of injuries via tripping.

Download speeds of around 20kB/second are unacceptable when we were led to believe that we would be getting a speed of 512kBps (which should download at AT LEAST 50kB/s on a bad day. It should reach around 64kB/s normally.). This is an example of false advertising, and there was nothing mentioned in the terms and conditions that they could change the speed at any time.

Join us! Unshape our internet, make it reliable. As consumers, we deserve better.

82. No Censorship of Internet Content

The federal government intends to censor illegal content on the Internet, compulsorily. We will not be given a choice to view this material, unlike the previous net nanny proposal. It will simply become inaccessible by all Australians. These restrictions will put Australia on the same level as countries such as China, Cuba, Iran and North Korea.

See article “Net clamp on users” in the Courier Mail on Wednesday 29 October, 2008, page 5.

The problem lies with defining “illegal content”. So far euthanasia and pro-anorexia sites are on the chopping block. What’s next? Illegal content will be defined and redefined by the government from time to time as they see fit depending on their personal views and political stance. Senator Conroy himself admitted that he does not know what content the mandatory filter would bar. This is unacceptable and an intolerable restriction on our freedom of speech (which is the freedom to speak freely without censorship or limitation) and our freedom of information.

How far will this go? If this trend continues, then perhaps you might not be able to even read this petition soon, having been blocked by the government as being undesirable or anti-government.

We should at least retain our right to choose. People who do wish to have unrestricted access to the Internet should be able to opt for this. Government should not have unfettered control over our freedom of speech, expression and freedom of information.

84. Bring GameTap to Trinidad and Tobago and other countries

Finally, a gaming alternative has arrived on the Internet where anyone can find their favourite console and PCs games and play them on their computer and online. The only problem is: It's only available to users in the united States and Canada.

Does it ever occur to you that when you put GameTap on the Internet, everyone around the world using it will want to play? Where is your determination for bringing games to the masses and your foresight in this franchaise?

Not only should you bring it to other countries, but you should make a bulletin board detailing all the respective release dates and other vital information so we, the Internet community as a whole can play games just as much as the U.S.A. and Canada.

85. Wireless providers to offer unlimited data with Tethering

Rural Canada still has limited Internet access. Dial-up is not always reliable nor affordable. However wireless carriers like Rogers, Bell, Telus and Fido have excellent coverage including rural areas.

By assuring Internet connectivity to rural Canadians, we can expect increased productivity and work opportunities.

Because Internet access via satellite and long distance WIFI networks are very expensive, using the wireless carrier networks would provide Canadians with more choices.

86. Nós alunos do programa e-escola queremos mais trafego

87. Quere-mos mais Trafego no E-escola

Estando esses requisitos mínimos (se assim pode-mos chamar) entre 3GB e 5GB, não estamos pois interessados em boas velocidades de redes com limites tão curtos, porque essas só facilitam melhor a entrada e saída de informação e assim arruinando melhor com o mísero tráfego que temos disponível.

A Internet hoje em dia vai tendo cada vez mais qualidade e exigindo cada vez mais tráfego a nível de imagens presentes, animações virtuais, ficheiros necessários a descarregar, entre outros... muitos destes não podendo sequer ser evitados para que o limite 1GB consiga ser 100% controlado pelo utilizador, pois não podemos por exemplo entrar em http://www.min-edu.pt/ e controlar exactamente o tráfego que vai ser gasto em cada acesso ao site, isto sem os devidos downloads do conteúdo que nos possa ser necessário, por mais que neste ou outros sites esse conteúdo possa ser leve, não acontece com muitos outros websites futuristas.

Assim pedimos carecidamente que o tráfego do tarifário padrão e-escola (banda larga light) seja melhorado. Pois a internet desta forma não passa de uma demonstração de internet, e com pouca qualidade, acabando por nos fazer aderir a outros serviços de Internet pela grande insuficiente presente na que é paga através deste programa e-escola.

Sendo verdadeira a intenção de adquirir-mos um portátil de inicio por 150€ e após isso ficar-mos a pagar 17 euros por um serviço de Internet mensal de 512k, para quê barreiras de tráfego para quê essas artimanhas que só acontecem em grande parte neste nosso país.

88. Get Hornet Internet in Manchester Student Village North

Fed up with the internet in MSV? Think you've paid too much for something that barely works? Then sign this petition to get Hornet Internet in the student village!

Since moving into MSV last year in September 2007 I regrettably signed up for the deluxe package of a 2mb connection for a whopping £250. Firstly this is an outrage to charge so much for us students to pay. It’s even more frustrating that you don't always get the full bandwidth speed. Downloading or streaming anything is a joke as it takes bloody ages. I for one ain’t gonna take it no more so I’ve created this petition to get Hornet to supply the internet here in MSV.

On average I can download around 50 kb/s which is 5 times slower than what I should be getting (~250kb/s). I can only imagine what people on the lower package (512kps) are experiencing.

Hornet Internet is so much better in terms of that its cheaper (Private Halls that Hornet provides for charge around £100), faster (10mb connection to each room) and more importantly is more badass than CableCom.

If anyone lived in Halls where Hornet is provided will know that it’s the fastest thing ever and it was so good downloading at 1mb/s.

In conclusion please help me by supporting this petition and I will get into contact with MSV management to see if we can get into some kind of agreement.

Thank You

89. Free Gold Xbox 360 Live

After paying about £300 to buy an Xbox 360 console, you would expect to be able to play your mates without paying surplus, but Microsoft has decided to charge gamers for the use of their multiplayer online servers.

This can not stand. Microsoft already make millions upon millions in pure net profit.

Charging gamers for the privilege of playing online multiplayer is not acceptable, take the Nintendo Wii, which has free internet access.
