Internet > Hygiene

I just came across this report from Ofcom (the UK telcom's regulator) that shows that the thing people are least likely to give up in this recession is "broadband Internet" (page #39). This is less likely than: fixed line telephone, mobile phone, personal hygiene, clothing, health club membership, music/DVDs/books, going out in the evening, etc.

As a geek, these are of course my priorities, but I'm surprised that everyone else seems to share them.

this reminds me of a video that is quite hardcore, about a guy who gets broadband. lets say he leaves hygiene for his ultra-fast internet

That's part of why I think that internet access should get rolled into the 'utility' role, such as water and electricity are.

I agree with nick opinion "internet access should get rolled into the 'utility' role, such as water and electricity are."
