Really? The town where I grew up, 150 km away from where I am sitting right now in a (semi-)major city, still has no high-speed internet. Yes. That's right. The only internet option there is dial-up. That is NOT a unique situation in Canada (or the US, I am willing to bet).
Even in the first world, internet connections can be spotty. And hell, it's probably the times that the internet is out that people want to play their games.
But you've never had an internet connection issue, so that issue doesn't exist, right?
