Just Say No... to Slow

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Charter. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am not not not a patient person. On interviews, when asked to explain one of my weaknesses (instead of just focusing on my strengths), I used to say, "Patience might be a virtue, but it is not one of mine." So I ask all of you, why do we accept the progress bar? We live in an instant gratification society. As Veruca Salt sang to us in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, "Don't care how, I want it now!" We like fast food, fast cars, fast-bake coffees, and it absolutely positively has to be there overnight delivery. In most areas of life, we don’t put up with slow service. And when you choose your Internet provider, there certainly is no need to tolerate DSL speeds and unreliability. Not when we need to work and play online: e-mailing, tweeting, banking, playing games, shopping, uploading and sharing photos, downloading music from iTunes, streaming videos and blogging. We don’t want to watch the progress bar, London and Maddie want to watch that video of a dog skateboarding the minute we open the email. DSL is now the new dial-up. We’re losing productivity at a time when we can least afford it. It is time to say, “No More Slow!” With Charter, we can all stop waiting and get going.
