Read more, leading me to go to the library, leading me to use their Internet (though I can only use it there from about 10 a.m. to about 4 p.m., a half an hour at a time.

I will just read and read books every day and watch TV. That's all the entertainment I can think of.

I guess that would be a really tough period to me. I mean, if I stay without internet for only a normal day, I already get nervous. I keep checking if the internet connection come back or not. If I stay the whole day without internet then I call to the internet company.

I've been there. I had no internet connection at home for some months as I couldn't afford to pay the outstanding bill at the time. I was also doing writing work online at the time so I HAD to use the net for research, keeping in contact with my clients and submitting completed work. I adapted. I had to. I used various internet cafes in my local area, the cheapest ones I could find (for the hours I needed to be on the net). I also used a 24 hr cafe that was further away, but very useful (as I could work nights), and cheaper. If I knew I couldn't use the internet for a month ANYWHERE, I'd find it very frustrating as I'm so used to it and rely on it for part of my income. The sky wouldn't fall, the world wouldn't end, but I'd be frustrated.

Hell I freak out when my internet is down for an hour. But if it were down for a month, I would use the public library or a friends computer to check my email for sales that I might have made. But the good thing is that if my connection is down, I can still work doing tarot card readings. Because although I log into the site via the net, I can also log into the site via an 800 number. So if my connection goes down for more than a day, one way or another I'll find a way around it.

It will be critical period for me. If it is in my hand to reinstate internet connection I will get reinstate it.

I really couldn't do without my internet connection for that long. There is just too much I do online to give it up for that long. I couldn't imagine any scenario, other than a major disaster, that would cause my internet connection to go down for that long but if it did, I would have to find a hot spot somewhere to get online. I would also make more use of my internet connection at work, even if it meant spending a little extra time there on my own time to use it. I'm online every day and I would get too far behind if I had to do without the internet for very long. I sure hope it never happens.

That's okay. I am used with not having internet. Sometimes though if you're so used to having an internet connection it seems like you can't survive without it. In my case, I can survive without internet even for a month. If it's going to be a year without internet, my only worry is that all my social networking accounts will be so outdated.

I'd probably camp out at the nearest starbucks the whole month. The internet is very important to me right now and if I was cut off for a whole month I would be living in a different world.

I would use the free internet at the local public library. Of course, it is not actually free since my property taxes pay for the library and its services.

Fortunately, with wifi hotspots just about everywhere, I can take my laptop and go to a café or the library. Since I do a lot of work online, I cannot be without my internet connection for a long time, or I will lose clients and money! So I am very grateful to all the businesses and recreation centers and libraries and parks that make free wifi available for people to use!

One week is okay but not a month. I guess you could always go to a cafe where they have free wifi.

i just hope this will never happen to me,ever.Because i just can't bear to be unable to surf the web or chat with my friends at facebook. okay, if this would happen to me, i will probably watch tv or go the cinema and hangout with my friends. Or just go the nearest cyber cafe and go online. :)

I can manage until I'm done with the simple work of typing my manuscript but once it's done and the connection is still out,then I have to pack my things and go to my mother's house and find out if the connection there is okay. I can't last a day with a net connectivity because my lifeline depends on it.

I'll freak out! Slow internet connection already stresses me how much more if there's no connection at all. I'll be going down on the nearest internet cafe or shop if I lose connection. However, I won't allow my connection to be stopped for one month. I'll get myself a back up internet just in case.

I use a dial-up modem so we rely heavily on mobile-phone service provider for internet services. Sometimes the internet can be down on my favorite service provider, I usually call them up to give them information. If I find that the problem is still unsolved, I go for them on Facebook or on Twitter. Switching SIM cards for my modem has always been another way to keep me online.... Well if I have no any other option then I will go to cybercafe.
