Internet Connection Problem

It was 4 in the morning when I sprang up from my bed.

Waking up early in the morning has become my daily routine these days.

Some said as we grow older, we sleep shorter; and I know it’s true for me.

After washing my face with soap, I powered up my laptop and planned about what to do today. I decided to surf the internet.

The connection icon in the taskbar was showing excellent signal strength, but it was blinking once in a while. I started browsing with Google Chrome, and discovered every page was showing “This webpage is not available”.

I tried various means to reconnect, but failed.

Getting rather frustrated, I tried to do other things. But once in a while, I came back and tried my luck on the internet.

It was 7 a.m. when my son woke up with sleepy red eyes. He informed me about the connection problem since 2 a.m.

We decided to lodge a complaint to our Internet Service Provider.

To our surprise, we were informed that 80% of the subscribers in my State were facing the same connection problem and 18,000 registered users were still affected. We were told to wait until 10 a.m. when the service might be restored.

My eldest daughter woke up at 7.30 a.m. and grumbling. She also complained about her online problem at midnight.

My wife brought me a mug of hot tea without sugar.

Talking through about the internet problem, we had a good laugh.

Going online has become part and parcel of our lives every day. I smiled ruefully.

Life would be tough without internet for everyone.

It is 11.30 a.m. I lodged another complaint, only to be informed that 31,000 registered users were affected.

So we spent most of our time watching Astro TV, shopping, jogging, talking and relaxing, since all of us were having our holidays.

Nevertheless, the internet connection was still bugging us.

It was near midnight or early the next morning that we had our internet connection back.

Oh, just how we have become addicted to the internet these days. Sigh!

I thought that it was just me who suffers this internet connection. It really ruins the day if there is no connection. However, there is still advantages. Having no internet connection brings the family closer together. But if it persist, it doesn't help at all. It's annoying.

I have the same experience with you guyz.. but to open up your mind with our problem when it comes to the speed of our connection, the reason why we can experience sometime the slow speed of our connection its because the net its really exhausted, if you want to know why it exhausted it has so much user in short the demand is very high and the supply is very low and both all the ISP here in the Philippines are sharing the same portal to get some connection and its from China too. its good to have another ISP like in Japan to get a better stronger connection with the internet .
