When sharing a living space with others, it’s common to split bills like electric, heat, internet, and more.

Some roommates stick to pre-agreed plans and split the utility bills like they’re meant to.




In some cases, people somehow find themselves paying for the entire bill themselves. One roommate has had enough of their roomie not forking out the money for their part of the internet.

So they decided to take matters into their own hands and solve the situation themselves.

They came up with a solution that would leave their roommate out of luck, but it worked out perfectly for them. Taking to Reddit, they shared their story with social media users.

They wrote: “Roommate never wanted to pay his half the internet, so I canceled the service and just use the hotspot on my phone now.

“It’s slow compared to home internet, but at least I’m not paying for someone else’s entertainment.”

While the slower internet speed may have been an inconvenience, they felt their plan was worth following through and were quite pleased with it.

Reddit users left their comments on the situation. Some people felt like there were alternative routes the poster could have taken to solve the situation.

They particularly pointed out that there were cheaper avenues they could have taken in the situation. One person suggested: “Why didn’t you just change the WiFi password or block his devices on the router?”

With some advice, another individual chimed in: “You usually get a discount for the first year of service – if you ever get sick of the slowness look into a new plan and just don’t share the password.”

And mirroring what someone else said earlier, someone wrote: “You could have just changed the passwords.


“Then you could have used an access point that has a pay for use Hotspot. So he needs to pay daily by cc before he uses it. Like hotels do. These are not expensive to set up. It just goes to a splash screen with a paywall.”
