Telecommunication providers in Singapore have failed to comply with the telecommunications QoS standards regulated by IDA from time to time.
Telecommunication providers should not only just be responsible for internet communications, but also telecommunications which consumers been paying the monthly bills. However the matter of fact, consumers have not been receiving the expected level of service standards as according.
It is evident that there have been numerous incidents of non-compliance or service disruptions across all the major telecommunication providers which have caused consumers to be greatly affected due to the reliance on these service providers.
As far as telecommunication providers try to mask their shortcomings, through many engagements between representatives and its consumers, there were many lies which were gradually unfolded to the consumers have greatly impacted the company itself to its dishonesty and integrity of business ethnics.
This petition is written in context to Singapore Telecommunications Limited, SingTel. It is evident that SingTel has not been honest to its consumers with its products and services. Individual Customer Service Officer would deliver not only standard FAQ answers to its customers, also at the same time, very deliberately a lack of knowledge on SingTel's products and services; in turn have caused great amount of confusion to its customers at stake.
Not only should Customer Service Officers be aware of customer recovery; the telecommunication provider have failed to provide a satisfactory service to its customers. Services that ranged from mioTV, Internet (ADSL, Fiber Optic), Mobile Network (3G, 4G), as well as other products and services under SingTel.
Firstly, there have been many cases where SingTel mioTV's performance has not been up to standard. Regular pauses of imagery, slight distortions, pixelized imagery, freezes, downtimes, as well as the recent disruptions that caused an uproar, are not part of the deal with what consumers subscribed for.
Secondly, SingTel's Internet Service performances of its unreliability. Internet, one of the most important technology we can't live without, where communication begins with the internet.
However, with SingTel's ADSL or even Fiber Optic subscription plans, it seems otherwise. Internet disruptions and downtimes are very common. Besides that, it is evident that its products supporting the internet communication have failed regularly, hence, the cause of intermittent connections to the internet. It is evident even through a simple streaming of videos online would jam for a while due to buffering. Many technical employees and employees of SingTel would constantly sell customers lies to buy regarding the background of Fiber Optic to cover most of their shortcomings. Is that what really happen to your loading time even with Fiber Optic Subscription?
Furthermore, it is clear that with Fiber Optic, transmission via light, there should be lesser issues compared to ADSL. However, these were nothing but rumours. Even with Fiber Optic subscription, streaming of videos do factor in buffering time, page would stop loading all of a sudden, the unavailability of web pages, yet the same time the ability to troubleshoot a ping to its Residential Gateway. These common issues among its customers are more than evident its poor services.
Lastly, the mobile network performance of its unreliability. Mobile phone is the basic to communication we all are using in this era of technology. Without communication, information would not have been successfully been relayed.
However, SingTel's infrastructure to its mobile network have regularly failed its customers both incoming and outgoing calls. In both scenarios where a customer is making an outgoing call or receiving an incoming call, the probability of a call failure is high with SingTel.
SingTel claims that the causes are due to the mobile phone, its connectivity to its broadcast towers, and other unknown factors which also have been proven otherwise. Furthermore, consumers faced common issues with its 3G network at various locations, and worst, in times of emergency, its users are unable to establish a call out for help with SingTel's poor infrastructure and connectivity islandwide.
The above statements are collectively the feedbacks, comments and voices, of SingTel customers where services are not up to standards the amount billed monthly. If Singapore preaches about being a "World-Class Service" to its customers, then this should be the first to be rectified serving its citizens with "World-Class Service" not just to our tourists.
It is clear that these has caused SingTel to fall into breach of any service industry best practice on communications with customers.
The amount of people promoting illegal scams continue to grow.
We are tired of this, and we want to shut them off of YouTube.
"God hates Goths" may well be a joke site, but there is still some risk of someone taking it seriously and/or using those sorts of hate language when around the people whom it could offend.
There is a disclaimer about how it is a satire at one place in the site, but I think that they should really put a disclaimer of some sort on every page, ideally at the top of every page. That way, anyone who happens to get on to any of its pages will know that this is a satirical joke and they should not take it seriously.
"The greatest threat to today's society is the rise of the gothic subculture. Goth is a sinister and violent subculture obsessed with Satanism, Wicca, Vampirism, BDSM, rape, child abuse, Hitler, bondage, sick sexual perversions, serial killers, death, drugs, self mutilation and other sick practices to vile to mention. Goth's are the Devil's Children. In my opinion, Goths are more dangerous to children than pedophiles"
“So let's be straight here. Goths are the lowest form of human trash that has ever crawled upon this good clean earth. 'Garbage people' I call them, and I can assure you that is what they are. Freaks who worship the Devil, who take drugs and molest children, who have pre-marrital sex, who whore themselves, who are obsessed with Vampirism, and abuse handicapped kids, who promote cross-dressing and underaged homosexuality, who behave like wild violent animals that need to be put down, who cut themselves and try to get others to self harm, degrade themselves and attempt suicide and think it is acceptable behaviour. I rate them as detestable as those worthless cerebal palsy retarded creatures they plant at the entrance to Walmart, to welcome shoppers.” "Duuu... welllcuummm... too... wullmart... Duuuuu...". “Because let's face facts here, they are equally as pathetic and repulsive.”
“See, we are at war here. War against the Hell that Earth is becoming. Crack addicted children on the streets, the whores, vampires, Goths, the mentally handicapped, retarded demons with spina bifida and cerebal palsy, mongeloids that behave like wild animals that are prone to sexually gratifying themselves in public, pathetic excuses for humans with brains like dogs, and homosexuals. What kind of a world is this ? That fags can marry and spread their disease ridden seed ? That is why send Aids to cure their kind. Why even now God is preparing for war. Why he sent the Tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, and why he will send many many more atrocities upon this pathetic World. Because we have turned from him, and like a good father he will scold us for it.”
“God is angry with us. Furious that we let open Satanists walk freely among us when the Bible teaches we should be burning them, and we WILL be punished for disobeying our God. He will send calamity after calamity upon you heathens, and he will mock you when you die. Halleluja!”
“These are signs that the end is near, my friends. Just look at the state of our World, that we are over-run with satanic pieces of trash like you. But make no mistake, we will fight this evil head-on by any means at our disposal, with the direct blessing of God himself. Our God, who drowned the wicked world in the great flood, and spared but one man who was worthy. Our God, who cleansed the cities at Sodom and Gomorrah with fire from the skies, wiping out fags and adulterers and idolators. We are all ready and willing to die for our God. I find it quite pathetic that you are all so blind.”
“Goths in my opinion are more dangerous to Children than pedophiles, and need serious psychiatric help. The sooner Goths realise what they have is nothing short of mental illness, the better for everyone concerned.”
“What we can offer you here is ten year of experience in educating young people, such as yourself, about the dangers of the Gothic subculture, and the role that heavy satanic music plays in destroying lives (and brain-cells).”
“If you want to go on being lead around by your nose-rings, then ignore the message of salvation this website offers you. If you want to seek repentance and a new lease of life, that only Jesus Christ can offer you, now is your chance for recovery.” “Our own Rev RG Green estimates that 99.999% of ALL women born today are heading straight to Hell!” “The truth is that so many women are turning away from God, and ignoring important Bible teachings about how they should act, how they should dress, how they should know their places!”
“Though the fact of the matter is that while Bible teaches us MAN will be reunited with his maker. NOWHERE in the Bible does it say that women go to Heaven! In fact we do not even know if women have souls to save! While the Bible teaches God gave MAN an immortal soul, and made woman FOR him, NOWHERE in the Bible does it talk about God giving dogs, cats OR WOMEN a soul!”
“Many people write to me to complain about my Churches views on Handicapped children. They tell me I must be 'wrong in the head' to think this way. That retards are just 'people too'! Do you know that many of these worthless freaks actually believe God created these ugly limbless monsters? I find that highly insulting even to suggest such blasphemy. So I have decided to create this 'God Hates Retards' section, so that people can understand that I am merely trying to educate them into the Bible truths about these vile and repulsive dumb animals. If every filthy retard dropped down dead tomorrow Jesus would weep tears of joy! When a retard dies, God laughs!” The group who supposedly run this site - Parents Against Goth" - claim to be peaceful. I ask you, does any of this hatred sound peaceful to you?
Goths are not always evil; it's just that they have a bad name. I have met at least one of them in my life. Nighttime is not always bad. Remember, Jesus was born in the night. Anyone who has ever worked with someone who has a learning disability will know what great stuff they are capable of. The use of the word "retard" against them is both hateful and ignorant. Women DO have souls. Nowhere in the Bible does it actually say that they don't, and they are God's people, too. "He made them all, both male and female". Look at all of the great, charitable and helpful people in history that were women.
Please remember that, if God does exist (which I believe He does), He is probably a god of love, not hate. Although God may hate some actions/thoughts, such as those of homosexuals, it is not all that likely that He actually hates the people themselves.
God Hates Goths
Text has a way of inhibiting communication. While efficient and utilitarian, text just lacks emphasis. I would have italicized emphasis, um, for emphasis, but I can't do that. I also can't do that on Facebook.
After the presidential elections of 2009 in Iran, news and information were affected by heavy censorship. Meanwhile, different people and media tried to cover the news.
One of the most reliable sources who was active before the election time and still is concentrating on informing people was Vahid Online who was/is active in sites such as Google reader, Twitter, Facebook, etc.
Last year, Google closed his google account according to its pseudonymous rules. After that, he is working with the name Vahid HT and asks Google to get his Vahid Online account back and to be allowed to change Vahid HT into Vahid Online.
کشور ایران، بعد از انتخابات ریاست جمهوری سال 2009 میلادی دچار سانسور شدید خبری و اطلاعاتی شد. در این میان، افراد و رسانه های مختلف سعی بر پوشش و ارسال اخبار در شبکه های مختلف اجتماعی اینترنتی داشتند. یکی از موجه ترین و معتبر ترین گزینه های دریافت اخبار که از زمان قبل از انتخابات شروع به کار کرده بود و تا امروز همچنان مشغول خبررسانی است، فردی است که با اسم وحید آنلاین، در سایت های گوگل ریدر، فیس بوک، توئیتر، فرند فید، اینساگرام و غیره فعالیت می کرد
شرکت گوگل، سال گذشته برابر با قوانین مبارزه با شخصیت های مجازی اش، پروفایل و دسترسی ایشان را به سرویس های گوگل قطع کرد. پس از آن، ایشان با اسم وحید اچ تی در سرویس های گوگل فعالیت می کند و با توجه به اینکه در بقیه ی سرویس های اینترنتی که نام برده شد، همچنان اسم وحید آنلاین موجود و فعال است، مقتضی است شرکت گوگل با برگشتن نام وحید آنلاین موافقت کرده و پروفایل وحید اچ تی را به وحید آنلاین تغییر دهد.
The Declaration of an Independent Internet
Drafted July 4, 1995 and updated December 3, 2012 to Guide Us to a Safe Internet without Censorship.
The idea is to reset the internet network and clean it from all existing information.
A new boot sequence would be added with a unique ID creation: it would require an ID card number or passport number to avoid multi-accounts for the same person.
The elimination of fake IDs would make the internet a safer place both for the world economy (safer transactions) as well as for national security (world-wide).
The risk of misinformation would become lower since people would be responsible for what they write/say/do.
Increase in online sales as a consequence of the built-in higher security levels would boost the world economy.
Information would be available in higher quality instead of quantity.
Criminal actions as well as terrorism would be closely monitored and made impossible for smaller groups.
Most of all: A better use of a currently existing infrastructure.
. .. .. .In 1978; the FCC had just started to allow UNSAFcc wire communications called "cable Television" in the Arkansas hills. The FCC misinterpreted FCC v Pacifica as the rational for existing and now claim jurisdiction limited to making only radio-wave broadcasts SAFcc.
. .. .. .Sixteen years after the time-sensitive technical free speech ruling, one of these Justices remained though seventy-seven years old and used the archaic decision to coin a new slang word. POOF This word was called, "the internet", in ACLU v Reno, (96-511). This Justice wrote, "the internet is a unique and wholly new medium for human communications", and hereby 'coined' an undefined slang term that had become popular without defining the slang term used.
. .. .. .This was despite growing up before nuclear bombs, internet wire and radio communications, or cell phones EXISTED the way these all do now. This Justice was forty-eight when man first visited the moon, or claimed to visit the moon. Ha
While most of the citizens of North Alabama have access to more than one cable TV company to choose from.
The citizens of Limestone County have access to one cable TV company, Charter Communications.
Please sign this petition if you would like to see more choice and competition in Limestone County.
After several failed attempts to recover my hotmail password, I found that thousands have had similar problems.
AT&T has decided to violate the U.S. Internet rules by limiting use of Apple Inc's FaceTime application to certain customers.
Other known public interest groups have filed complaints with the FCC about this (http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/09/18/us-att-facetime-idUSBRE88H1DP20120918).
AT&T should give all customers who pay for its mobile Internet service the option to use any Internet application they want to use regardless of which data plan they buy.
The Gillard regime has been trying to censor the media and several other groups for a while. Now they have passed Legislation allowing them access to your internet details, to collect and keep Australians' internet records, including their web-browsing history, social media activity and emails.
We can either sit back and watch this Legislation be abused to a point where a Government will have a complete profile on each of us, or we can act now and ensure even if this Gillard regime doesn't reverse it, the Coalition is left with no doubt we do not want it and we expect them to reverse it if they win the next election.
The book 1984 had the administration divided among four Ministries:
the Ministry of Truth, which deals with news, entertainment, education and fine arts,
the Ministry of Love which maintains law and order,
the Ministry of Peace which wages war and the
Ministry of Plenty which handles economic affairs.
The very vocabulary of the people was under Party Control; a system called “newspeak” was encouraged. One of the most dreaded words in the arsenal of Newspeak was the most heinous offence according to the Party – that of “thoughtcrime” which was sure to be punished by the Thought police.
The slogans of Newspeak are “War is Peace” Freedom is Slavery” and “Ignorance is Strength.”
LET'S NOT HAVE THIS HAPPEN FOR REAL.
On FaceBook, there are perfectly lovable accounts made by nerdy people, and they're accounts made for roleplaying as one's favorite character from whatever movie or TV show that they are most nerdy about.
Supporters of these accounts (aka those who have such an account and/or hold at least one dear on their "friends" list) lovingly refer to them as "roleplayers", "FaceBook roleplayers", "RP's", or "FBRP's". But in the eyes of those against these accounts (tattletales and FB itself), we/they should be counted as "fake accounts".
I am a supporter, and I belong in the "and" section. I have a separate account as Jessie from the Toy Story series, and I hold many roleplayers on both of my "friends" list very, very dear to my heart. Recently, someone threatened to report and ban my favorite roleplayer of Timon from the The Lion King series, and I was absolutely heartbroken. This wouldn't have been the first time one of my roleplayer friends had been permanently force-deleted, either.
I know that there are some people who hide behind anonymity to do truly terrible things to others, but I think that there should be true proof that that's what someone's doing before they ban somebody. One example would be a screenshot that can be proved to be 100% unedited.
UPDATE: The photo you see as the petition photo was the exact photo that was the profile picture of the Timon roleplayer I mentioned. I cannot currently message him, see his wall, or see his profile picture, as he temporarily deleted his account by choice in response to the threats. He's back on, but I still don't have the ability to talk to him. I really am heartbroken about that.
It is disgusting to see what some people say about disabled people and I believe it should be illegal.
For example, this is a link to an image someone made.
It is unbelievable what some people say and no one has done anything to stop it. Making bullying towards disabled people illegal will show that it is wrong.
ITU and the Internet
Right from inception, the Internet has had no central ruling authority. But this December, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) is conducting a review of the international agreements governing telecommunications and aims to expand its regulatory authority to the Internet.
Countries such as Russia which are advocating the ITU have regulatory authority over the Internet have advocated restrictions over the Internet "where it is used to interfere in the internal affairs of a state". This represents a dramatic threat to the openness of the Internet, where countries could regulate content not just within their own borders, but over the entire Internet.
Geographically isolated nations such as New Zealand and other Pacific Island nations have a significant economic and social interest in an open and well functioning internet. Accordingly, such changes to the ITU may harm our social and economic well being more than other nations.
The ITU has been a closed organisation for nearly 150 years - they represent the antithesis of the Internet community’s open and inclusive approach. Civil society, private sector, technical experts, and Internet users will only have limited input in the process. This would be a significant departure from the open, participatory, multistakeholder model that has made the internet a successful driver of social and economic growth.
If you support the continuing evolution of the multistakeholder internet, you are invited to read and sign this statement of principles.
Statement by New Zealand Civil Society on Internet Freedom and the ITU
Whereas, the Internet has become a major force globally for economic and social progress, opening up opportunities for consumers, educators, innovators, creators, artists and commerce.
Whereas, geographically isolated nations such as New Zealand and other Pacific Island nations have much to gain socially and economically from an open and well functioning internet.
Whereas, the benefits of the Internet have been created in the absence of any single central regulating authority or single standard-setting organization. Instead, it has been governed by a combination of groups in a multi-stakeholder model, which have evolved over time, and will continue to evolve. These organisations have included:
the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) coordinates identifiers, such as domain names and Internet Protocol addresses, across the Internet
the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is an open organisation that develops and promotes technical standards for the Internet
the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international community where members, and the public work together to develop Web standards.
the Internet Governance Forum (or IGF) was established in 2006 under a mandate from the United Nations to discuss public policy issues related to key elements of Internet governance in order to foster the sustainability, robustness, security, stability and development of the Internet
Whereas, the definition of "Internet governance" has been captured succinctly by a 2005 Report of the UN-sponsored World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Working Group on Internet Governance to mean "the development and application by Governments, the private sector and civil society, in their respective roles, of shared principles, norms, rules, decision-making procedures, and programmes that shape the evolution and use of the Internet."
Whereas, the characteristics of the multistakeholder actor in Internet governance may vary from organisation to organisation and from country to country; however all institutions should share certain attributes of openness, participation and representation of the Internet community as declared herein.
We declare our shared interest in and determination to keep the Internet open as a vital, global platform for access to information and communication, and an enabler of economic and social opportunity in New Zealand, across our region and around the world, while working to protect privacy, security and to keep children safe online.
We ask that all Internet governance organizations must share certain qualities: that they have a specific purpose; they have defined, limited powers; that their roles are narrowly tailored to specific objectives; and they provide open, transparent and participatory processes for stakeholder involvement.
We acknowledge that today’s multi-stakeholder institutions are not frozen in place. As the Internet evolves, so will its institutions. By the same token, any institution’s legitimacy to govern is not fixed for all time, but should be anchored in the aforementioned WSIS definition of Internet governance.
We ask that any institution engaging in Internet governance should articulate to Internet users the institution’s scope, purpose, and processes in clear, transparent ways.
We demand that any institution engaging in Internet governance provide for participation by all of the Internet’s stakeholders in meaningful ways before any decision.
We expect such institutions to engage in an ongoing dialogue with all affected stakeholders, including Internet users themselves. An institution’s legitimacy to govern must be derived from a shared understanding of its role in the ecosystem, addressing issues such as the following questions:
Why? Why is the institution acting and does it compete with another institution?
Who? Who are the decision makers, and how are they appointed or elected?
How? What is the process for decision making and what is the process for appealing any decision?
What? What are the institution’s powers? How are they narrowly tailored to the institution’s stated purpose?
Where? Where are meetings held and is there a mechanism for open involvement and engagement by stakeholders by distance?
Please don't just like. You need to sign ;)
In August 2005 - A TWISTED teacher jailed for downloading 11,000 vile images of children is masterminding a website for paedophiles from behind bars. Disgraced chemistry tutor Nigel Oldfield, 44, plays “agony uncle” to perverts who log on to the site, which justifies paedophile activities and demands sex with children be made legal. The site also advises paedophiles on how to download child abuse images without being caught.
Now released not only does the pro-paedophile ex-teacher still run blog's for that give advice to other paedophiles but he spends a great deal of time harrassing survivors of child sexual abuse on facebook, by using fake profiles. This man is a clear danger to children and should get a immediate internet ban
Oldfield was arrested in August 2002 after a shopper saw him taking pictures of children in Sheffield’s Meadowhall shopping centre. Police then discovered child porn images on computers at his flat in Doncaster. Oldfield, was head of science at a Derbyshire school in the summer of 2002 when, over a three-week period, he collected abusive images of children/babies in several 18-hour internet sessions.
He set up the website, which the Mirror has chosen not to name, while out on licence after serving eight months for possessing child abuse images. The site was axed in May by internet service providers after a police probe and Oldfield’s probation team ordered he return to prison. But now he has managed to restart it and Oldfield is in contact with fellow perverts on the running of the website, which offers a mobile number and an email address to offer one-to-one “support”.
He is also campaigning to lower the age of consent to 12, and to legalize indecent images of children
And now he is back to his old tricks !
Click the link at top of page for full profile on Oldfield.
As you may or may not know, shocking material is all over the internet. This varies from animal pornography to serious mutilation to human beings.
Child pornography is banned on the internet, but it's ridiculous that media showing animal pornography is still allowed and exists on the internet in large amounts.
This has to stop.

As part of Canada's Economic Action Plan, $225 million was provided to Industry Canada over three years to develop and implement a strategy to extend broadband coverage to as many unserved and underserved households as possible, beginning in 2009–2010. By far the biggest component of this strategy was the Broadband Canada: Connecting Rural Canadians program.
Broadband internet access is viewed as essential infrastructure for participating in today's economy, as it enables citizens, businesses and institutions to access information, services and opportunities that could otherwise be out of reach.
Bell and Rogers have recently both undertaken a forced transition costing their rural wireless clients hundreds of dollars per month to receive services comparable to those enjoyed by their urban clients at a fraction of the cost.
Clients happy with previously available technologies are now being forced to transition to metered billing in numerous markets previously served by unmetered wireless service.
This transition was implemented by both companies simultaneously. No high speed alternative technologies have been offered to rural clients and there is no plan to install optical fibre cable or perform other needed infrastructure upgrades.
Helping Hands Against Abuse would like all schools in the UK to teach Good touch/Bad touch as part of the national curriculum as well as the dangers of grooming and internet grooming to be taught in secondary schools as part of sex education.
21. STOP ACTA!
The Anti-counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) is proposed to be passed. Recently, SOPA was discarded after public outrage and internet strikes. ACTA was shelved last year but now there are plans to initiate it.
THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE, do we really want our privacy attacked? The internet is to be monitored so every time that you send or receive info it will be MONITORED! This goes against the very principle of free speech!
Please let congress know by signing the petition that this is UNACCEPTABLE AND WE WILL NOT LET OUR PRIVACY BE INVADED!
Not only did 2011 see the sudden death of Joe Gentile, but the removal of intelligent programming and music from weekdays (and even parts of the weekend).
It is totally unfair to get rid of Angry White Male, Job Talk, John DiVita's Morning Show, and other programming that made WJJG an amazing radio station.
Mancow should not be on at all. He is incoherent and his show does not belong on a community radio station like WJJG. Michael Savage should be aired in two hours or removed too, and sent back to WIND.
If you believe that WJJG should continue with original programming and music during weekdays, please sign this petition. This is an outrage and we need to keep whatever we have left of special radio stations like WJJG.
Don't take my word alone for what ACTA is really threatening. Go look it up. Search it on google. Look at the injustice. We must fight for our right to have privacy on our personal computers. We should fight for our right to not be monitored every time we switch on our computers.
Just because a few people with deep pockets are angry with the internet, doesn't mean that the government has the right to take away our constitutional rights.
Like I said don't take my word for it, go see what the news and your searches and everything else tells you.
Web filters are a form of censorship. They prevent people from seeing what they need to see.
They are in schools and businesses. They must be stopped.
America are trying to ban all anime from showing on the internet.
It was on the BBC news that they were trying. We should stop it because not many people can easily go out and buy anime.
Ever Since MySpace changed it has lost a big part of their users, many of them complain about missing the old MySpace and how they need to change it back.
Old MySpace - let's us express our creativity as teens and also adults, it would benefit MySpace as well as the users.
The SDUSD administration is blocking more and more educational websites on its Internet-access system.
These sites include YouTube, Flickr, many computer-technology sights, all blogs they can find, and most forum sites.
Well there are less and less sites with manga and anime and some don't have them all.
Richard O'Dwyer a 23yr old University student has been served an Extradition Warrant by the US on charges of copyright infringement relating to his web site which provided links to enable its users to access films on the internet. At all times he was in the UK, his servers were not in the US and his domain names were not in the US.
The alleged conduct took place entirely in the UK. Richard is asking for a fair trial in the UK, where the alleged offences took place and where he will be able to defend himself.
