Home (Sweet) Home
I feel as if I’m going through purgatory right now. Is addiction to the Internet possible? It’s been a particularly frustrating day for me as my Internet went out this morning right as I began a conference call with a few people in US. For my nature of work, I find constant access to high speed internet incredibly important. But it’s not just the lack of Internet that really frustrates me, but also terrible customer service, lack of healthy competition among Internet providers, and a general sense of apathy. I’m currently using my cell phone’s connection to check essential email and write back to people. In the bigger picture of Pakistan though, a good Internet infrastructure is the least of the country’s worries. I’m here for a week to visit my parents and it is shocking to see the country from an outsider’s perspective.
