I haved moved into the new place, and it is very nice. Scandalously, there is no internet. As such, updates will be infrequent until I can pay some Canadian telecom company way too much for broadband.

Life without high speed internet makes one feel fundamentally cut off from the world – like one is stranded in an obscure village on an unknown continent.

where I’m living, the internet is not really high speed. Not high enough to stream YOUTUBE videos without constant disruption.

Not having internet at all would be like having no legs.

Quite. Though I am not looking forward to have to deal with the telecom companies. I see installation fees and headaches in the near future.

I have decided to go with TekSavvy as my ISP. They seem to be well reviewed and they are good on the phone.

The only problem is that I don’t know how I can be at home during the day for installation.

I have the latitude and longitude of my new flat:

N 45°24.674′ W 75°42.702′
