hello krupesh! the main reason why we get an internet connection is for us to communicate with our relatives abroad! and also we use this for doing some research that my husband needed... as time passes by, i come to know many other things that we can benefit from having an internet...like i was able to see my old friends from school again and get in touch with them...and now, i am also using this to kill the boredom by being always in the house and at the same time, i was able to earn a little every month... have a nice day!

When did you get the connection? How was the connection then compared to now? What kind of research your hubby does? Ofcourse there are a lot of benefits by using the internet.How much are you able to earn every month online? Does it make pay your bills? Lastly congrats on holding the No 1 rank in question & answers section.

hello krupesh! actually, we just have this internet connection just last year...its because, we are living before in a far place from the city and internet is not available there and so i can't compare the connections now and before...hehehe research that my husband do has something to do with his works and well, its just a simple research...and just for his own reference... right now, i am not earning that much for its not really my intention...i am just having some fun here and i appreciate that by the end of the month i was able to see some amount on my paypal...but for sure not enough to pay my bills! hehehe and thanks for that!

When we first got an internet connection many years ago, it was mainly for educational purposes. But these days I think that it is essential to have an internet connection as so many forms of communication now involve the net. I wouldn't want to be without my internet connection.

Many years ago in the sense? Ya at first it was used for educational purposes as I think at that time it was very much costlier to have an internet connection.

There are many reasons that I need the internet connection. I think the computer becomes less useful without internet. The internet plays a main role in our life today. I need the internet to keep in touch with my family and friends. I can also search information and go shopping via the net. Internet makes everything much more convenient. It also saves money. I love China

Hi rupesh, In my office it is for office purpose but I am stealing (not stealing but using free time) time for mylot. At home we have net connection and the purpose is for education, now the teachers are asking ‘get the information from net’ so we took the connection. Yes we are using the same to read local news papers from our native place and checking mail etc.

Hi Sreekala, Why would not take the benefit of using internet in the office when its there ? I think its stealing only as if you dedicate that much time for your office works then I think your boss would feel good. You are right now a days that in the schools they ask to get the information from the net & for some pictures to be pasted or for the project work.Its a necessity to have one.

in my line of work, the job does not always get done at the office... i need to be mobile and connected. internet does that. we have set up an extension office at home so i can do my work there. internet is also a great means to stay connected to friends and family when they can't be reached by mobile phone. but primarily it's for work. and during breaks, i can have fun by playing games, mylotting and doing personal stuff like checking my banks, booking flights, checking travel destinations and then helping out in the homeworks and school projects for my nephews and nieces. having the internet is very convenient and helpful. it gets my work done. it provides access to fun, learning, and more opportunities.

Hello myles, I think you are an exception here.Everybody leaves half the work back in their office & think of doing it the next day but just for the purpose of pending office works you have the internet connection?

Originally i got the internet for the purpose of looking for online work from home. LOL!!! That was 2003 and i still have not found anything. I run a small cleaning business and i keep in contact with the clients through the internet. I pay bills online, i sell stuff online, buy stuff online. So all in all its become necessary for me.

Hi krupesh! The very reason we have an internet connection at home is its necessity. It is important for me because I use it to communicate with friends and relatives. That's the same use for my parents. I use it also when preparing my lectures. My sister uses it for her homework.

The purpose for our family is: we use it for official use.Do some pending jobs from office. Used to surf some useful sites to know more. If we plan to buy somthing then we usually search in the net and then we prefer. Used to study related to our subject.

There are a few reasons why I have the internet, but the most important reason is because I live far away from most of my family members and emails is how we communicate mostly. We do talk on the phone too but it is cheaper to email each other instead. Another reason why I have the internet is because I like to earn some extra cash and it is the easiest way ato do it, by not having to leave my home. So I treat it as a part time job but one I can do at home.

It's more like following the trend, even though i dun have much use for it.. lol =D It's only when i have internet connection, then i realise what i can do with it.. Having internet connection is not just about surfing aimlessly, or for business use.. It can be for ple like us, who just wanna spend our time wisely by earning online instead of playing games.. hehe ^_^ One can have many reasons for internet connection, but how many things can one do with it, is a different thing.. haha =D

The main reason why I got my internet connection was work. I didn't bother having an internet connection then but when I started working online, I knew I had to have one. After that, telecommute work had become spontaneous. I was able to obtain work one after another online.And I am very much enjoying it. Now, I have quit my day job and has since stayed at home with my kids while at the same time keeping a full time job, which is home-based. I just love it!

The main purpose of internet was to talk to my children who are married and who live abroad.we are able to exchange our daily matters and see each other through the web camera.At the same time I have the opportunity to have contacts with so many of my school mates and college mates which otherwise I would not have come into contact with them once again.I am happy that I am able to give my opinion on so many matters through mylot and at the same time become familiar with the other people's mind.So I am very contented to have the internet connection.
