6 Things that Drive You Crazy in an Always Connected World
Nowadays, staying connected and having everything at our fingertips is something we’ve come to expect. We’re so used to being able to download full-length movies in mere minutes and binge-watch our favourite series all night long; most of the time without seeing our friendly buffer circle.
What happens when you can’t get connected? Are you biting your fingernails off yet? Here are a few horror situations that you may relate to!
1. When the antenna bar flatlines…
So, you’re waiting on that all important message from your hottie, or you need to check out that new Britney Spears track and bam! It’s blank… there’s no connectivity… none at all! The horror! You look up to the sky and you just go… whyyyyyyyy me? I’m outside aren’t I? Why am I not connected!
2. When You have 5 full bars but still…
So your phone says you have the best connection possible and even displays the 4G+ symbol but nothing’s loading. Not even Google! It’s not just Safari or the stock browser, even Google Chrome shows you the little dinosaur. WHY?! WHY DO YOU LIE TO ME?!
3. When there’s absolutely no signal…
Notice how each and every single time you start planning to use waze, that’s is the time the GPS somehow doesn’t seem to work la, there’s no signal la. You go through an industrial area and there’s no signal… or even WiFi. You go through tunnel, same story, no signal too. Sob. Sob.
4. Holidays! Let’s Balik Kampung!
Every time someone says ‘balik kampung’, you start imagining all the mouthwatering food that your “Opah” will be cooking for you, the fresh kampung air that brings back memories! Then, you remember how fast the internet is back in the kampung…. Oh my, bet you must be scratching your head thinking how are you supposed to upload all those important foodstagrams?! Life, as you know it, ceases to exist when you are without Internet connectivity.
5. When going indoors seems like going into a prehistoric cave
Let’s just face it – we were born to roam free!
Every single time we go indoors, doesn’t matter if it’s the office, our home or an outing to the biggest mall in town, we tend to lose connectivity and watch as the links to our social life goes down the hole. It’s like entering the twlight zone and heading back to prehistoric times! I mean, how are we supposed to upload that important instagram update of that cute dress or cool gadget porn?! *Panic attack intensifies*
6. When the network just won’t work – even when you reboot your device
You look down to your device to see a full signal bar. But nothing is working. You try to load Facebook – it doesn’t load. You try Instagram… it’s not working either. You try Google Chrome…. the same. Being the technical genius you are, you turn the device off and wait a full whole minute before turning it back on. Thinking the problem is fixed, you launch the Facebook app to upload that all important update… nothing. All you see is the circle…turning and turning. WHAT IS GOING ON?! Nothing is working.
Like a welcome sunrise after the long night, a little network called webe is looking to end your pains in being connected. webe is expanding its network footprint across Malaysia to give you better connectivity even when you balik kampung. webe members get to take advantage of the 4G network by turning the 4G LTE settings or by simply using a smartphone or device with support for LTE band 5.
That’s right, that means endless streaming of YouTube or watching Netflix while on a road-trip or throwing the biggest house party at your kampung (psst – do invite us though if you are having a party, we love free food. #justsaying).
Oh, did we mention that going 4G LTE has endless possibilities of forever staying connected too!
