2. Updates on College issues
a. Wi-fi issue
The opinions of the students are fragmented. There are those students who are
appreciative of the issue and there are also those who strongly oppose the
imposition of fees.

The proposed fees and implementation of the new system are as follows:
o P10.00 per hour
o P18.00 per 2 hours
o P25.00 per 3 hours
o The piepaiu cards will be released either by the Beans office oi 0CS
o If the students already consumed the allowed number of hours for internet
usage they neeu to buy anothei piepaiu caiu
o Minute charging for internet usage is possible since the law library already
has a software for its implementation

Mr. Nisperos talked with the Dean regarding the proposal of the students. Mr.
Nisperos proposed that the internet bandwidth be divided to provide two (2)
services: free and paid internet services. For free internet services, the students may
use up to 2 mbps. For the paid internet services, the students may use up to 14
mbps. The Dean manifested that he is willing to give concession for the need of the
students. He also said that he will talk with his team to discuss if the scheme
proposed by the students is possible.

Ni }avelosa askeu if auuitional iouteis will be auueu since theie aie black spots
inside our building. This issue will be referred to the Office of the Dean. Mr. Tayao
commented that instead of using the margin of speed as the selling factor for the
paid system, might as well use accessibility of sites. He added that the internet is
being used for academic purposes and manifested his opposition to the new
payment scheme.

Mr. Nisperos thereafter clarified the DILNET services of the college. The internet fee
paid by the students at the start of the semester is for the 20 hours for internet
provided by DILNET. In order to maximize the DILNET internet services, the LSG
should talk with the University Student Council to propose improvements and
negotiate the terms and conditions for the use of DILNET services. Mr. Javelosa
commented that the duty to talk with the DILNET provider is the College
administration. Hence, it is the Dean should be the one to talk with the provider.
However, the Dean, during his talk with Mr. Nisperos, clarified that we should first
discuss with the USC to clarify the steps to be undertaken.

Mr. Nisperos, Ms. Reyes and Mr. Boller are tasked to talk with the IT people and
explain the proposed implementation of the new ISP
