Recently, one research of PTI showed that due to the high speed internet, sleeping time is decreasing day by day.

They tried to find out the conflict between high-speed internet and sleep.

Researchers say that due to the high speed internet, satisfaction of sleeping does not come. Due to job, business or family work in morning, people are suffering from shortage of time.
Bocconi University researcher Francesco Bellary said, “Usually, the scientists advised to sleep for seven to nine hours, but people with high speed Internet access were less sleeping than them and they were dissatisfied with their sleep. They use electronic devices more in the late night, so they get less time in the morning.
Researcher Bilari said that many people went to sleep late in the trap of digital attraction. But in the morning, they cannot be able to recover by more sleeping. For this reason, sleeping time is decreasing and mental stress is increasing.
By playing games on the computer, watch TV or watching video people waste their sleeping time. The victim peoples age in between 13 to 30 years old.
