Good Things About NOT Having Broadband at Home

This is probably going to be a very short list, but let me try anyway.

1. I have more time to sleep. While I should really be up and working, at least I find more time to get some rest.

2. I organize my work schedule better. Since I am using a mobile prepaid connection, I want to make the most out of the time I am connected. This means that I gather all the information I need for my articles, disconnect, and write "in peace." That is, I write without the usual distractions of Facebook and IM.

3. I spend less time on planning weekend getaways that we probably would end up not going to. While I would like to go away every weekend, it simply is not possible. I normally compensate for this by planning trips that are not really possible - call it my travel "window shopping." Without broadband, at least I only plan trips that are actually feasible.

I told you this was going to be a very short list...I really cannot think of any other advantage of NOT having broadband. Can you???
