Everyone these days talks about needing to be connected to the internet but I think I’ve gone the other way.
Last night I had a nasty outage with my ISP which meant my internet connection effectively went down, and I was surprised how much it didn’t bother me.
Don’t get me wrong: email, web access, Facebook & Twitter have all become vital parts of my life, and since getting my smartphone I don’t think I could ever go back to being unable to check my email whilst on the move.
In the ‘old days’ I would have found yesterday a major issue. One of the reasons I’m with the ISP I am is simply because of the quality of service. More than an hour’s downtime and I would be jumping up and down screaming.
None of that stress last night when I just thought that if I really needed to get online I had my phone but otherwise I was in for a quiet evening.
