Broadband providers, listen up: A survey of 1,000 London commuters found they would be far more stressed out by not having Internet access than if their heat was turned off, their TVs didn’t work or they didn’t have water. The poll, done on behalf of Infosecurity Europe, noted that, when asked how long they could cope without Internet access at home, 27 percent said they didn’t think they’d be able to handle it at all, 25 percent said they couldn’t last longer than a day, and 29 percent said they “would seriously be in trouble if they didn’t have it after a few days.” Only 4 percent said they didn’t need Internet access at all. Comments Claire Sellick, event director at Infosecurity Europe, “The same sentiment falls into the workplace,too. When workers were asked what would cause them the most distress at work, a third of people citing (lack of Internet access) over and above their computer systems going down.”
