<!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>Today we talk: Prepaid Internet. Is it the ultimate modern convenience, or the future bane of your existence, only rivalled by Eish-kom?&nbsp;</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>Ask anyone, anywhere who’s ever tried an ISP (or simply look at the Vox Twitter), and they’ll tell you one simple truth: signing up for Connectivity is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you're gonna get. Will you REALLY be able to stream that new show you've been dying to watch? Or will you be stuck staring at a buffering screen for hours on end? The excitement is just too much to handle.</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>And let's not forget about the joy of running out of data (because Uncapped sounded way too expensive – we’re not named Patrice!). But fear not, for those capped packages also come with their own set of perks. Like the joy of having to constantly monitor your data usage to make sure you don't run out. It's like playing a game of Tetris, but with your data plan.</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>Nothing quite compares to the feeling of logging onto your favorite website, only to be greeted by a friendly reminder that you've used up all your data for the month. Ah, the sweet sound of frustration.</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>And let's not forget about the thrill of trying to decide how much data you need each month. Will you go with the basic plan and risk running out, or will you splurge on the premium plan and hope that you don't waste any data on cat videos?&nbsp;</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>But perhaps the best thing about ISP’s has to be the customer service. You know, the people who are always there to help you with your internet problems - as long as you don't mind waiting on hold for hours and hours. It's like a fun game of "how long can I listen to this elevator music before losing my mind?</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>And don't even get me started on the joys of trying to set it up! It's like a puzzle that you're never quite sure you've put together correctly. Is that the right modem? Did I connect it to the right port? Who knows, but at least it's a good excuse to practice your frustration-management skills. Factor in long, extensive contracts, endless teething problems, and the potential to underestimate what you’re getting into, and you’ve got the potential to make “City Power” your second least favorite Twitter handle.&nbsp;</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>But what if there was a workaround that negated all of the above?&nbsp;</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>What if there was a way to skip the long contracts and difficult startups? An affordable, feasible solution, with no complicated installations and a free router to boot? What if you knew what you were getting into and had the ability to navigate it? Sounds like a lifesaver for those who don't want to be tied down forever and a day</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>What if there was something called HYPA – another way to say convenient, affordable, total control over your data usage. Sure, it may come with its own set of challenges, but isn't that what makes life interesting?</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>Just kidding. We’re hyped for HYPA because it redefines everything we thought we knew about dealing with an ISP. It’s Uncapped Home Fibre without the need for a governmental tender. It’s easy to use, simple to set up and a surefire way to ensure a seamless, painless way to enjoy the joys of Internet!</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph -->
