Victory

From Petition Creator: A big thanks to Peter Taft and his crew at Chorus and Transfield Services for"delivering better broadband to rural New Zealand". Our internet speed has literally increased 10 fold! We can now use the internet for what it was meant to be used for! To connect People using digital tools with their future!

Access to the internet is as important as access to infrastructure like electricity and water in 2013. The download speed in this community varies significantly at different times of the day (between 0.32 mbps and 2.0 mbps) which is not appropriate for business or personal use (not in 2013) and not when there is an unclear relationship between internet service providers, and those responsible for the installation of infrastructure such as Chorus, Transfield Services, and Internet Service Providers.  This petition is to increase the speed in the community of Tirohanga, Opotiki so that access to the internet is at least comparable to other parts of New Zealand.  This is a rural area with a high Maori population.  This sort of speed does not help to bridge the digital divide for Maori either.  

To:
Peter Taft, Chorus Network Planner
Increase the speed of internet access.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I believe all areas in NZ should have high speed Internet access so that people have equal opportunities particularly for business and education opportunities. Rural communities Are at a disadvantage without high speed internet as NZers are encouraged

      Having access to broadband let alone faster broadband would be a dream. As a student it would so make life simpler and faster uploading and downloading. I also rely on the internet to keep my business updated, however, more often than not it suffers due to the lack of speed from these so called 21st century technologies. Give our rural communities the tools that will give us the same equality to those living in non rural areas
