HOW DO MUNICIPLE USERS SUFFER FROM SLOW INTERNET SPEEDS?
Most schools and colleges accross the UK actively use internet based resources as part of daily teaching and students of all ages see the use of inernet resources as a natural part of their studies.
With many simultaneous users in a school it is essential to have high internet speeds so that each user gets enough to work efficiently and effectively.
In any multiple user environment the upload speed becomes an important factor as slow upload speeds shared amongst lots of users results in very little for each user and so users' computers are not able to work efficiently and processes slow down causing wasted time and frustration that does not help learning.
Schools that suffer from slow internet speeds may be unable to offer their pupils the opportunity to pafrticipate in the various internet based learning resources that are used every day in most schools. This disadvantages the schools and the pupils.
Access to Superfast internet speeds enables rural schools to offer their pupils all the opportunities that the wealth of internet resources bring.
Many rural community libraries have not been able to offer fast enough internet speeds to people that do not have access to the internet at home. This compromises the library's ability to serve the community's needs and disadvantages local people.
Access to Superfast internet speeds enables libraries to offer an internet service to people n the community who need it and that encourages people to visit the library which increases its viability.
