When Was Your Last Internet Free Day?

  1. Within the past week – I regularly go a day or two without going online

    17.5%
  2. Within the past month – Occasionally I’m too busy, but never more then one day

    22.5%
  3. Within the past year – Traveling or technical problems kept me offline

    30.0%
  4. Can’t remember – Just the thought of it makes me uneasy

    30.0%

    If I'm away from the office or my house I always carry my Sony Vaio T2XP ultraportable with Vodafone 3G Broadband card. Before I had the 3G card I used to connect via Bluetooth to my mobile, and before I had the T2XP I used to carry a HP iPAQ H5550 and do the same thing. It has probably been about 3 years since I had a 100% Internet-free day, and even then I probably hated every minute of it :p

    I've had quite a few, when I came to uni it took me 4 days to get online. Encryption and a lot of hoops to jump through. It bothered me slightly. But not much.

    Back in August, for a whole week - I was on vacation in Sweden. I didn't miss it at all.

    Every weekend.

    It helps when dial-up is the ONLY service available in your area.

    Late September. I was at my mums house. She has Internets, but I'd rather sit back and relax.

    Internet is like work (for me anyway), because I have to use it all day.

    I had lunch at Panera today. The wireless connection was free, so I suppose that counts.

    On the other hand, the internet itself has always been free for me. Access is the only cost.

    Last weekend...and many other weekends. I'd say that I average 1-2 days per week without going online.

    Fortunately, I have other things that I like to do that involve going outside.
