Two weeks since moving and no broadband internet connection. Just as well there hasn’t actually been any spare time in which to miss it!
But anyway, the internet is such a useful thing these days, in fact it would be nearly impossible to survive without it here. It is our only way to pay bills without visiting a bank or using one of the bill payment ATMs. And with being out in the countryside now that is a bit difficult.
To the rescue then, is the trusty GSM cellphone, in my case a N-Gage. Although we are in a bit of a dead patch for my current operator it is enough to get GPRS (packet data) connection from one place in the house, which unfortunately is several metres from the computer, but wireless helps again, since I can use Bluetooth to create the link from the PC to the phone!
It might be slow, but it works!
