Reliable Broadband for California State Route 38 Communities
To whom it may concern, The three communities of Forest Falls, Mountain Home Village and Angelus Oaks along California State Route 38 are very underserved when it comes to broadband internet. I personally pay $85 or more a month for Hughesnet satellite internet that on most days gets under 1 Mbps in speeds. Other neighbors I have spoken with, even with the other internet providers, get about the same internet speeds. I also personally moved here thinking that there were other options for internet in this community, only to find out that the other internet providers had stopped accepting new customers. Forest Falls is home to 1102 permanent residents (according to 2010 census data) with 712 households as well as small businesses, a fire station, a Sheriff’s Department sub-station, a school, a post office and Forest Home Camp. Mountain Home Village has 170 permanent residents (according to 2010 census data). Angelus Oaks has 312 permanent residents as well as small businesses and a fire station. I know we are considered rural, but if you look at actual distances, this is untrue. Mountain Home Village is 3.7 road miles from Bryant Street, where they are currently developing land for a new housing development. Forest Falls is only another 3.6 miles from Mountain Home Village and Angelus Oaks is only another 4.7 miles from Forest Falls. Places this close to major population centers should have access to reliable and affordable broadband internet, especially when those places contain businesses and a school. Please help bring awareness to the situation by signing this petition that will be sent to interested parties to help our community. The bigger the support, the more likely we can make this change happen. Best regards,Kirk Garrison, Forest Falls resident email@example.com

The Lake Harney Woods Broadband Effort
Lake Harney Woods est. 1985, is a large rural community of at least 250 residents that has been long forgotten by our local internet providers. We are looking to either strengthen our existing sole provider with AT&T to modernize our broadband technologies, and/or develop a new relationship with another service provider. Presently, our only options are wireless hotspots or satellite, both are expensive and of poor quality. DSL was once provided, but is no longer available to new residents. AT&T seems to be phasing out their DSL service while only offering more expensive options. Please sign this petition, show your support in the efforts to bring today's technology into Lake Harney Woods."TOGETHER, WE SHALL BE HEARD"

Save Mozilla Firefox's Best Feature
Dear Mozilla, We are Firefox users. We love our browser and rely on it to do our best work. For us, this means having the freedom to customize and extend our browser using powerful Firefox Add-Ons like Tab Groups, Tree Style Tabs, Vimperator, Pentadactyl, and many others. While there may be technical advantages to the WebExtension architecture, we feel that technical decisions should never be made at the expense of Mozilla's user base. Sadly, recent decisions by Mozilla to remove Firefox's support for XUL-based Add-Ons in favor of WebExtension-based Add-Ons endanger our ability to continue to use Firefox. Thus, we the undersigned request that Mozilla: Indefinitely postpone all plans to drop XUL Add-On support from Firefox, Open a dialogue with the Mozilla / Firefox community to ascertain what features Firefox users rely on that are currently only available via XUL Add-Ons but not possible under the WebExtension paradigm, and Work with the community to develop a path forward that allows Firefox to achieve its technology goals while preventing the loss of key functionality that millions of Firefox users depend on. We recognize Mozilla's need to keep Firefox and its underlying technology moving forward. However, we feel that the outright removal of support for XUL-based Add-Ons would have such a negative impact on our continued ability to use Firefox as our de facto web browser that we will be forced to investigate other alternatives. However, we are confident that neither we nor Mozilla desire such an outcome, and we thus make this request in good faith and with the hope that Mozilla will partner with us the undersigned to help keep Firefox the best, most user-respecting web browser there is.

Better Faster Internet For Rural America
Rural America has been left in the dark when it comes to internet access, yes there is the option of satellite internet offered by Hughes Net and Exede etc. but it is strictly limited in various ways from data caps to internet speeds and etc. But when it comes to online gaming and live streaming and using video streaming services such as Netflix and YouTube you have to pay outrageous amounts to get the speed you need for them services and still they may not hold up to expectations due to lack of a steady connection to the internet because with satellite there are a range of signal interference's from cloudy weather to trees and etc. you simply can not have a steady reliable connection to the internet. Yes it may work for some people but for the people who use the internet a lot for work and play it just won't cut it so I would like one of the cable companies or the FCC to please figure out away to bring steady reliable internet services to the millions of Americans living in rural areas. Also the price of fast reliable internet in a city ranges from $80 to $120 depending on the provider and for unsteady unreliable satellite internet in rural America for the same speed and large data caps range from $150 to over $200 depending on the provider, this is outrageous and unacceptable especially for internet that isn't that reliable. So if you live in rural America or want to assist in this movement simply sign this petition and let them know we demand better faster more reliable internet services in these areas of the country.

Bring updated Internet such as broadband or Fiber outside of town limits in Silverhill, AL
We are tired of living in the DSL dark ages. A lot of us are getting less than 10mbps speeds when we pay for 25mbps or higher. The only option throughout Silverhill, AL is DSL especially if you live outside of town limits. The outskirts of town are what need broadband and fiber options the most. Some don't even have the option for anything unfortunately besides expensive slow satellite internet. It's time for the Town of Silverhill, AL to get with the times and the growing cities around us that have Fiber internet. Speeds of true 100mbps and higher are what we need! It's time to retire our outdated DSL phone jacks and have broadband/fiber internet options! So much depends on reliable and fast internet speeds anymore and streaming something as simple as Netflix or a video chat shouldn't be a buffering, pixelated or lost connection nightmare.

Help Us To Demand Reliable, Consistent and Quality Services From Frontier Communications
We, the undersigned are becoming intolerable to Frontier's negligence to their customers. Many of us have been without services for days, months and even years (such as myself) with services being totally out or intermittent. Technicians, when they decide to show up, will test the equipment and move along, stating that the problem has been solved, when in reality, there has been no change. Being out of service or having intermittent service puts some people's lives in danger. For an example, if you have a pacemaker, it relies on phone services. Most of us are forced to have Frontier Communications because we don't have any other service providers in our areas and can't afford thousands of dollars to bring in or extend another company to us. Having consistent, quality service won't interfere with emergency equipment. It also provides consistent service so that those who earn a living or use the internet to get educated and schooled can continue to do so, meeting their proper guidelines without any unnecessary interruptions. This can easily be fixed by providing proper customer service training, hiring more technicians, provide proper tech training and by upgrading equipment that is out of date or dysfunctional. It's time to take a stand and tell Frontier Communications that we have had enough!

Unblock Coolmath Games
Recently, all students beheld a horrible and inhumane sight in front of them; Coolmath games was officially blocked on school computers. This action taken by HCPS is a travesty of our human right to play fun, family-friendly games during math class and in our free time. This comes at the worst time possible time for students as we are currently in the midst of exam season, and coolmath games was a safe haven for relaxing games before it was savagely taken from us. We've had many fond memories of coolmath games, like playing Truck Loader 2 during indoor recess on a rainy day. Now the kids of the next generation will be left out on the memories that defined our many years in the public school system. We, as the student body, demand that Henrico County Public Schools unblock coolmath games for the greater good of it's current and future students alike.
