Wi-Fi Don’t Fly

Students voice their opinions on the internet speed at school.

Whether it’s upstairs or downstairs, it seems that the school Wi-Fi tends to be an eyesore in many FHC students’ classes. No matter the grade level, all students have experienced the hindrances of the Wi-Fi strength in the building, though some classes have worse problems than others.

 Room 15, Ms. Laurie Fay’s English class, seems to be seen as the classroom with the slowest Wi-Fi, according to multiple students. Many of Central’s students have experienced the struggle that comes from waiting for a chromebook to load before they can start getting anything done, and quite a few of these students have had major technology issues over the course of their highschool career.

“It’s just like one of those minor inconveniences,” senior Natalee Shipley said. “If you’re having a bad day [slow Wi-Fi] makes it even worse.” 

Shipley’s description of the Wi-Fi matches the attitude of many of her fellow classmates, as she acknowledges how even though the Wi-Fi speed is quite a small problem on it’s own, the time it takes for a device to load can have a significant impact on students’ attitude toward school.

Senior Ally Brower said the strength of the Wi-Fi seems to vary rather frequently

 “At the end of the hour it’s harder for my phone to load because more people are getting on their phones towards the end of the hour,” Brower said.

 Wi-Fi tends to act up during days where many people are using their phones, causing a multitude of problems in respect to communication during school hours. Shipley also has experienced problems with  too many people using the school Wi-Fi at once, during the weeks leading up to finals.

“I feel like during finals when everybody’s on their computer trying to study for stuff it gets really bad,” Shipley said.

 The strength of the Wi-Fi weakens with each and every class that has a technology-centered study period on any given day, making it difficult to work online during school.
