So here’s a peculiar thing: high speeds cause, and cure, stress. I’ll say that again: the rapid pace of modern life is killing us, making everyone super stressed basically all the time. But high speed internet, which solves many of the problems associated with that speed of life, is coming to the rescue.
I have read claims that high speed internet actually reduces blood pressure. I suspect this is somewhat of a hyperbolic claim, but I can assure you (as can anyone who’s ever ground their teeth down to nubs trying to upload stuff with a rubbish mobile broadband connection) that rapid connectivity definitely brings down my stress levels. Indeed, since I started using an ATT internet cable modem instead of the old dongle I used to have, my working life has become something of a joy.
Let me explain a little about who I am. I work from home and connect with clients all over the world using the web. When I was just starting out I couldn’t afford an internet connection so I used a pay as you go dongle. It was rubbish. I actually had to drive 30 miles to the nearest internet cafe on several occasions, just to upload Word docs (that’s right, you did hear me correctly – that was Word docs, simple, plain files of less than one page) because my connection wouldn’t do it.
So when I switched to a high speed ATT internet connection, you can believe I was amazed: and that my stress levels, which had been at boiling point for months, plunged to the depths and stayed there. All of a sudden, I could open multiple web pages without my computer going to sleep. I could send emails with attachments and not have to go make a sandwich while I was waiting for them to upload. It was like I’d woken up in a whole new world.
See, here’s the thing: with everyone scrabbling around for every spare second they can get, the faster your internet connection the less worried and miserable you are. You can conduct your working life unblocked by your own connection speed, ensuring that you deliver what you need to, when you need to – and keep your reputation intact while you do so .
So what cable modem/wireless router connection should you go for? Make your choice based on two things – what you want the Internet for, and how much you can afford to spend. The second is the most important criteria, because over-spending will only make you stressed again!
Different operators offer different things – but under all the marketing talk there’s not a great deal to pick between them. I got ATT internet because it offered the best download speeds for the kind of money I was willing to pay. I could just as equally have chosen someone else but I didn’t feel the need. My package was sufficient for my purposes and my wallet.
Do check on coverage and line ownership before you make a final decision. If one company owns your phone line, you may have to pay extra for another company to put the web through it. Otherwise – prepare for a stress free life!
