She Needed to Have Access to the Internet

When my sister moved to Michigan with her three kids, I knew that she was going to finally be happy. She had left her husband after years of neglect, and he didn’t even seem to mind that she was taking their kids hundreds of miles away. I was just happy for her, and I wanted to help her as much as I could because I knew that she didn’t have much. The first thing I did was check out the satellite Internet availability in Michigan. She moved to a very rural area, and I knew that cable Internet would not be an option.

She told me she would be okay without Internet, but I was also hoping to get her a position in the same company that I work for. I am able to work from home full time, and it just makes life so much easier for me. I knew that it would make it a whole lot better for her too, especially since her youngest son is not even in kindergarten yet. I went online to find out about the Internet options in her area, and it did not take me long to find Hughesnet Internet’s website.

I was able to set up an installation date for her when I knew I would be there too. I wanted to put the billing for it in my name just until she got on her feet, and I knew I would have an argument on my hands over that. When she found out how little I would actually pay for her to have satellite Internet, she finally gave in and let me do this for her. It has helped her out so much, because she now works from home too, and her kids have the Internet to do their homework on too.
