That moment where your loading wheel keeps spinning over and over and you can’t get any connection, its horrible!
A study now officially confirms what many have been feeling all this time: poor internet connection does lead to significant amount of stress.
According to a study done by Ericsson, a Swedish mobile broadband company, delays in streaming videos and loading Web Pages could increase heart rate and eventually result in stress. The experiment was conducted by studying the eye movement, brain activity and pulse of 30 volunteers during internet delays.
Let’s look at some tweets of people struggling with no internet connection

The result they found was that there was a 38% jump in the heart rate and stress level also rose significantly. Stress level almost doubled when the video was re-buffering. The report also reveals that the level of stress can be compared to other situations in everyday life. For example, the stress level was similar to that of watching horror movie or solving a mathematical problem and greater than waiting in line at a retail store.
