Keep the flame alive with a high-speed broadband connection


Two people find love in cyberspace, and it’s technology, and constant connection that keep them together even when they’re worlds apart.

Xander and Alexa met each other in Facebook threads of common friends. Xander is based in Atlanta, Georgia while Alexa lives in Quezon City.

“We ‘liked’ the same things, and she was among the few who got my jokes,” Xander recalls. “Even on more serious posts, we were in sync with what we believed in and held dear.”

Days turned into months and as the two got closer, Alexa decided to get her own broadband connection so they could talk even outside of work. There was a pleasant side benefit: “I had no idea that my new connection would bring me even closer to Xander, too,” she shares.

A long-distance relationship proved difficult, but the two eventually found creative ways of keeping their relationship steadfast. Xander says, “Only your imagination limits you when it comes to keeping the flame alive.”
