Right to Unlimited Internet

“Everyone is entitled to the right to unlimited internet.” (Its made up. But I want it to become an international human right. Seriously :-D)

If you are someone with unlimited internet, you are truly blessed. I was blessed myself until my father (for my sake) changed our internet package from unlimited to limited (but with much higher internet speed). Yeah I know what you are thinking. I did try to reverse his action but then I was told bythe service providers that that package had expired. Oh! You can’t imagine how sad I was. I actually cried.Our limit was 10 GB. Obviously that could not happen so we updated first to a 15 GB package then to 20 GB package.

When you have limited internet package, you feel claustrophobic. You feel depressed. You feel unable to breath. 


And then the fear. The constant fear of letting the bill go beyond package. They charge us 100 Rupees for 1 GB extra. So, I use everything very carefully. Even I have to blog carefully as one post costs me some 200 MB. I measure and plan how much internet we have to use daily. Almost 600 MB that is. But still sometimes a lot of internet gets used through mobiles. I usually keep the use of internet to laptop only, but you know can’t restrict your whole family to do so.

I have an app to check my data usage. It looks like this.


In the past few days I was at my uncles house. There I had no headaches. I felt so good to not count my MBs once. To feel freedom. Sweet sweet freedom.
