Stories from tech 

This isn’t your own internet!

This one is short, but nonetheless very worthy.

So i'm basically the 15 year old tech kid in the family and last year I went to visit my grandparents. While I was there they complained to me about how there internet was slow.

I check the internet speeds on there phones and I do notice it's unusually slow so I look at the router. Everything here looks fine, router is the default Xfinity one but it shouldn't be nearly this slow. Then I take a look at there WiFi settings… There connected to the Xfinity WiFi hotspot… I ask them how long they've been on this network and they said ever since they moved into the house. They've owned the house for 5 years. FIVE YEARS! They've been paying for home internet they don't even use for five years! I ask them why they're not connected to their own WiFi and they said they forgot the password. I tried to help them reset the router but they don't want to risk breaking anything…
