My Internet is important to me

My Internet is working but more slowly than usual. I have to wait ages for a discussion to be posted or for my reply to be posted. I have resorted to having two or more tabs open with My Lot. I really don't like waiting three minutes for what I have typed to be posted. My family said I should disconnect all the cables in my lounge to try to get my land line phone working. I am relying on my mobile phone and get regular text messages saying sorry they haven't fixed the problem yet. I am way too scared the Internet will go down. So I am leaving the cables alone. Do you have problems with Internet speed? Did you ever have a product stop working or a service like phone or Internet? How important do you feel the Internet is to you?

Internet is very important to me, this is my cheapest way of communication. If I have no internet that it could be very, very, very boring here. and besides this is the reason why I don't need fast and speedy internet since I just mylot, chat and facebook. as long as there is connection I am totally okay with it.

Dear friend, Not every time, but rarely it occurs here too the internet would be slow especially during the rain and when climate turns rough. We use a broad band connection mostly. But in the case of mobile speet is slow and speed when near to the tower.

Hi friend, surely internet problem will give a lot of irritation to us, i don't have patience to tolerate internet problems. Now i am using a perfect connection for my internet need, previously i used mobile internet and faced a lot of issues with it. Now i am using data card and paying more money for it, but getting a good service without problems. Better to change your internet provider to get good service

I live in Japan now and the internet is so fast here I don't have any complain about it. But there are times that I couldn't get the wifi signal much because it is located upstairs. But other than that I don't have anything like waiting for three minutes etc just to load a page or what. I really hope you could do something about that. It is really frustrating sometimes when things like that happen. In another story, I have a 3g connection for my phone. Sometimes the connection really is slow. But would I expect from this. It doesn't really bother me a lot. Although the longer you wait a page loads in your phone, the more it eats your battery. So probably that's the only thing I am concerned about. And yes, internet is very important to me. But whenever I can't have access to it there are still many things I could do like read, watch movie, talk with friends, etc. So whenever you have that slow connection, rather than be frustrated, do something else. You'd notice you became more productive than having a fast connection. Just my thoughts.

My problem not on speed but on IP address. My provider have several public IP to it customers but unfortunately IP address who give it to me already marked as spammer (even I'm not spam anyone). It really irritating me. This problem limit my activities .... include accessing to my own email. I already report this to my provider but they not respond well. They even call me liar. I really ... really want to change my provider. I just wait till my credit expire and I'm done with them

Luckily I have a husband who is a computer whiz. So, he knows what to do if my computer gets slow. Sounds like you need to do some clean up or clear your 'cookies' or something to get your computer to not be so slow. I would ask someone who knows what to do about a slow computer or check online. The internet is important to me - it is how I am earning, like with Mylot. :) I like to earn online, so I do rely on the internet. Also, it is a great way to communicate, with Facebook, it is how I keep in touch with my family and friends. So the internet is important to me.

yes sure, i ever have the same problem, the worst case both of them my connection was down. I used two connection, i used cable and HSDPA for my mobile phone with limited bandwith but enough for me for mobile. Wihtout any reason suddenly my cable connection was down, and then started getting on with very slow, and back to normal again, i just can wait because would be useless if i complained to call center because they know nothing about technical and surely would be say be patience we'r on progress to fix it.. LOL .. Dont worry when they down as long as they fixed it even we dont know for how long to back to normal as usual. I hate when i'm on uploading processed and suddenly down the connection..but i cant do nothing, just take a drink and watch TV.

I know it sounds to be ridiculous, but at my home there are two different internet connections from two ISP. Since my dad is afraid one doesn't work, then at least we still have another internet connection. It is OK since I often download it and my dad will not complain about the slow internet speed any more. He can still enjoy watching his online movies.

I rarely have my problem with my internet speed because I am using modem not line phone internet. I am using packet internet with speed 3.1 MBPS. But if my internet stop working one day, may be I will confused, what should I do in old day. But thanks, I never have to experience that. My internet is very important to me because I am making money from online jobs.

My internet service provider don't have a good service. I do not understand this because there is just a tower of our provider nearby and we are a [post[aid subscriber. I mean, here in my country, there are more advantages in being a pospaid than prepaid because the companies says so. I think we will have to disconnect our services and be prepaid. It is hard to pay bills and services that isn't well on their service.

Without internet, there's no money for my family. Me and my two siblings depend on the internet connection or its speed to get our work done efficiently. We do experience a slow and interrupted connection these days and we always make it a point to call up the internet service provider to also give them a feedback.
