I remember when internet did not exist.
I remember when internet at home was unheard of and we always had to go to a Cyber Cafe.
I remember when internet at home was the standard dial up connection with loud trrrrrrrr-tiktiktiktiktiktiktik-peeeeeep-peeeeep-khrrrr-peeeeee-khrrrr
I remember when the flashing modem constantly made me squirm and count how many minutes I’d already been online.
Then came broadband, which was, wow, silent and fast! Not so many awful minutes of waiting for pages to load and thinking of high telephone bills.
Then came unlimited broadband. Silent, fast and inexpensive.
When I remember all of this, why do I feel so uncomfortable when the internet is not working?
