    I do but it gets annoying knowing you have no wifi to chat with friends😂

    My parents used to but thankfully stopped.

    Only thing I can recommend is download programmes on iPlayer, channel 4 player or itv player to watch after the wifi has gone off.

    No they don't, its not in their room. Seems a bit strange to turn it off lol I usually watch Netflix before I sleep so it would be so damn annoying.

    We only have it on whenever someone needs internet access on the laptop/computer

    Then again, I don't even have a half-decent phone to even Whatsapp on in bed, so I'm not so fussed. I've gotten used to living without WiFi. I'm a caveman. I know :troll:

    My daddy turns it off (I don't live at home anymore though, so it doesn't bother me). It's because my 15yr old brother would happily stay up til 4am talking to his friends and playing stupid games.

    Do you come from an Asian or Muslim family? have you tried to see if there are any wi fi networks you cna piggback? Alternatively maube dload what you need to watch. Netflix is going that way anyway. When you get your own place then you can have superfast bb.

    You could get yourself a mobile hotspot, but that costs money and you sound like you are at school.

    Yeah, I know someone who has parents that turn their wifi off so they study. They are Asian.
