My friends who live in the city always talk about the things they do online, but I couldn’t do these things, because I only had dial up Internet. There’s not much you can really do with the slow speeds that get delivered over the phone lines. At best, I could check my emails and browse some news sites, but I couldn’t watch any videos or do anything else that required a lot of data to be used. When Internet from Hughesnet became available in my area, I signed up for their services and stepped into the 21st century.

The first thing I did when I got my new Internet connection was watched some videos on a video streaming site. There were some funny videos that my friends sent me through my email address, but I never watched them because of my connection speed. Most of the videos were videos of cats doing funny things. For some reason, cat videos are always popular on the Internet, and this trend shows no signs of slowing down. After that, I spent the rest of the day watching movies through a popular movie streaming site. There were a lot of recently released movies on there.

My friends wanted me to play a game with them, so I downloaded it from a games service site. On my old connection, it would have taken me an entire week or two to download the game, but with the new connection, it only took a couple of hours. I installed the game and connected to a match that my friends had started. I was new at the game, so I had to take some time to adjust, but once I did, I was pretty good at it, and was beating my friends for most of the matches that we played.
