    How do you cope without network coverage in some areas?

    Network coverage is the technology that helps enable connectivity in human existence and interaction, without it one feels so isolated and like from medival ages. It's evident that during the early ages of life, there was nothing like network coverage although there was a means of communication like through smoke but it's limited and can't be compared to the use of modern technology of mobile network coverage.

    To my greatest surprise, there are still some areas that are yet to have a viable mobile network coverage in today's world and I wonder how would people residing in such areas cope with limited communication. I visited a village in one state recently and I found out there is nothing like mobile network coverage there not to take more about Internet connections. I began to wonder, how is living interesting in such community.

    I just managed to hang on for a few days in that village and left with immediate effect. Should you find yourself in such village, would you be able to live in such area with such conditions?

    I am honestly not sure how people do it. I spend so much of my life on a computer, online, on my phone... Heck, even my friends are online friends. I really do need to get out more LOL

    I would like to make a holiday for myself and my family in the future. "Offline Day". Just a day where internet does not exists. The center of focus will be friends, family, food, good conversations, and day I say... Spending time outside!? *gasp* lolol

    I do like spending time outside and being aware from the computer but the last 3 or 4 years, I just can't. I work from home, I run my own blog, ect.

    I do love that some areas are not conditioned to this. I miss the 90's really. The internet was there but it wasn't at the center of everything for me.

    You are definitely on track with what I am referring to. I wonder how possible it is for people to stay without reach out to the outside world. It's nice to once in awhile have a vacation with just family and friends, no outsider involved whether through social media or any other means. But to perpetually live in the dark is inconceivable to me.

    Most times I see living in such conditions as a curse because practically life and living is difficult in such settings.

    I would just read e-books, which are a great past time for me. Sadly, my work requires me to use the internet, so I would end up poor if I'm in an area without network coverage. Other than that, I suppose I prefer a place without the Internet, to be honest. I don't have to mind other things or people's lives. One complaint I would have is the lack of information gathering, which the Internet has made convenient for us.

    I think on a global scale networks have evolved a lot over the past decade. Even many poorer areas have at least 3G coverage. Of course, this doesn't apply to everywhere but it's only a matter of time. I just wish mobile data wasn't still so expensive. That's one thing that hasn't changed much over the past decade. Like KloeRinz, any future work I plan to do will usually require the internet. I also want to travel, though. I'm just glad that most of the world is connected so I can usually get online even if it's not nearly the speed I enjoy here.

    I don't think I'm near any area where there isn't any network coverage to be fair. That's the biggest benefit of living in a city I guess, you will always have network coverage. I guess it would not be difficult for those areas that do not have any network coverage because they have gotten used to it. Of course, if we moved over there we would have so much trouble trying to adapt but because they have grown up without any coverage, it's just a lot easier for them. I think projects that Facebook and Google are running to ensure that almost everyone has some sort of access to the internet is great. In a few years, maybe almost every country in the world will have some sort of decent network coverage.
