Internet Accessibility: For Every Student's Convenience

The internet has become a necessity for students nowadays and majority uses Wi-Fi in order to connect to the World Wide Web. Wi-Fi or wireless fidelity is a known technology that is responsible for providing interconnectivity between devices. It allows people to gain access to the internet and is very useful especially when connecting with people in foreign countries. It can also help people use different social and blogging platforms. According to a survey conducted by Wakefield researchers for the Wi-Fi Alliance, 48 out of 100 students would give up beer rather than giving up Wi-Fi. Also, 75% of the students voted on a poll that having Wi-Fi access within campus can help them get better grades.

Internet usage is slowly becoming a privilege for the rich and financially stable, creating a wall between them and the students who are less well-off. This campaign is aimed for the breaking down of this wall and to offer free Wi-Fi to everyone because every student must have equal rights because they are all seen as equal under the law, whether they may be rich or poor.

Granting free access to Wi-Fi within school premises can prove to be very beneficial to the students. However, in Mindanao State University, only the University Library can facilitate such a thing. And with the university’s large population, only some students can enjoy this privilege, and not at all times can they experience fast and reliable internet connection.
