While I don't think many people will agree with me...

There are plenty of cheap options to get around this "problem". Most if not all libraries have computers / internet and they can always stay after class to work on things that might require a computer. There is also the ability to go to a friends place and of course going without...

Oh dear, no internet? Those poor people!

Obvious sarcasm, I'm sure these people have more important things on their plate, like making ends meet in order to feed themselves.
