This policy does not require an institution to prove that it has infrastructure for the capacity is requesting. All it requires is that you have students and asks us to assume that each student will have a laptop, pda, iPad, and i-anything that will need connectivity. There is nothing stoping this institution now using the resources to set up a local for profit ISP, or even passing these resources to a third party that will take them off the continent. Lets stop using this tactic to scare people into supporting the proposal.
if i wanted to take resources off the continent all i need to do now is to invest in a poor african HEI get the resources and then use them in my business abroad. The policy opens the door we are claiming to close.
> If people still have issues with these answers, we cannot address them without further articulation of the concerns. Part of the consensus process is to build towards a common goal, and we have done our best to answer each query as it was raised, and if the answers were not satisfactory and did not adequately explain our position, we can do nothing more but wait for further questions which will allow us to further clarify the position. This is the nature of consensus building.

However, this is impossible to do if the objections are based on hypotheticals with no basis in solid information or gut feelings, and by the IEFT draft document on consensus, objections that are considered when gauging consensus should be based in fact, since consensus is more than just a "majority" issue.
