How Healthy Is Your Internet Connection?

Last weekends, lives in my house came to a standstill. For 2 days, the internet service provider, streamyx, was down.  

Of all days, it was the d-day for Selangor. 

My Son contained his frustration with SMSes and sports channels but my Husband, pity his soul. An ardent reader, he has to read papers everyday. It used to be, besides the daily Star and The Sun, he counter balance his readings with Singapore Straits Times and The New Paper. But since dailies went online, Star is only bought on Tuesdays because of the InTech section. Both Father and Son were restless as they have to be online to complete their necessary assignment.

I called up enquiring about the seminar I was to attend at UTM (University Technology Malaysia) last Sunday. The organiser was scrambling with internet connection as they only knew about the 'interruption' a couple of days before the event and it's too late to call it off. 

Thank God, the seminar went smoothly without any hiccups to the switched connection. In the seminar, Nuaeman, a local full time blogger and an Internet Marketer, shared his experience how the local internet connection greatly affected his health. Others, consoling themselves, have to accept that at any years, the local connection is always 5 years behind time. They did not want to be another Nuaeman. 

The next couple of days, I knew my Husband was red eyed reading 'More Than Half Of Singapore's Homes And Offices Should Have Access To Faster And 'CHEAPER BROADBAND' By The End Of The Year'. 

Yes, even right now, he's paying more than the neighbour but with slower connection than them. This year end? It's better not to think about it. Not another Nuaeman again. 

But as I read 'Tech Trouble Causing Computer Stress Syndrome' today, I can now somehow visualise the link between internet and health of my Husband, my Son, Nuaeman, and the rest of the technology seminar participants.

Oh. That's too bad. Paying more for a slower connection is unfair. Are there no other reliable connections?

Just stopping by to say hi and thank you for commenting on my blog. We also have internet connection problems from time to time. We live outside of town on a farm and so we can't get the good reliable internet service that people in the city can, it stinks but I still would not move back to the city!

Mr (not) Stupid,
That's the reality. All are reliable if what's printed is what delivered. (O_o)

I often drop by your site - There's a lot of information to learn.

Well, I live in the city.
