Hey Stephen, not every area is the same. I'm British, but moved to France 5 years ago. In the UK, everything had gone internet based for admin, deliveries and so on. I was constantly on my mobile without realising. It was normal. In France, it's the opposite. A large majority don't use the internet frequently, or at all. Our town is getting fibre optic for internet sometime this year or next. We had fibre in the UK 15 years ago. People still use mobiles with buttons here. If a shop has an internet page, it will be a grainy image and just have a phone number. Admin is paper based and an absolute nightmare. My wife is French and switched on and even she bangs her head against the wall with it. If the country truely went digital, like the UK, so many paper pushers would be out of work, being behind the times suits the economy here. I can't remember the last time I text or spoke to someone on my mobile. I keep in touch with friends and family on messenger or whatsapp, but not all day long. I don't check my mobile all the time. I find it frustrating coming from the UK way that the internet is used for some stuff, to the French way or barely at all. I think the internet is advantagous when used correctly. The rest is for tin foil hatters or pedos.
