D’yo remember those golden days when all of us used to connect to the internet via Dial-Up? Oh yes, that creepy old and geeky sound whenever you try to connect to the web to surf around pages at an amazing speed of… a couple of kilobytes? Epic!
It looks like that even DSL/Lan Internet connections will get nailed soon, or at least threatened in someway. Y’know how or why that happens or who will make it happen (at least here in the Philippines)? WAIT though. Let’s take a look at the following scenarios…
Connecting to the Internet at School
Facebook, Twitter, Plurk, you name it! Most social networks and even some blogs are banned at various universities across the country. It takes the fun out of surfing the internet and just when you thought that things couldn’t get any worse you realize that doing your research at your school library or via your school’s wireless network is such a pain in the ass. Download speed of mere kilobytes that bring you back to the old days mentioned above.
At the Internet Cafe or Coffee Shop
There are those select-few internet cafe’s across the country that provide fast internet connection and are a reliable go-to resource for your online cravings or needs. Some are noted to be pretty expensive, others are mostly loaded with customers. Some Coffee Shops provide Wifi but don’t have it secured, at other Coffee Shops there are these mean people who just go there to have their Torrent program download stuff from the web at the expense of everyone else who’s surfing. Why not have your own dedicated way of surfing the web on the go, or better yet whenever and wherever you need it!
