Below are some quoted text from the article,
Marianne Fowler was told by her telco before Christmas she would be connected “within a week or two” after switching off her old ADSL line.
Instead, the Windale woman spent four months defending her reputation as a photographer, working furiously – even in free WiFi zones – to get back on top of her workload.
“Everything about this process has been stressful – you feel so helpless,” Ms Fowler said.
“I’m a wedding photographer – it’s a job that needs the internet – there’s not one part of my job that doesn’t require it.
“So I’m months behind in my workload and still trying to catch up.”
