Definitely TMI: PewDiePie Says He Steals HIs Internet from Neighbors

PewDiePie, whose YouTube channel recently shot past the 21 million subscriber marker, and averages 200 million views a month, told his fans on a video that, well, he doesn't have his own Internet connection. After moving to a new apartment several weeks ago, he's had connectivity issues, so he's stealing from his neighbors. It's also slowed his productivity. 

Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg is the 24-year-old online video sensation better known to the world as PewDiePie. His YouTube channel recently passed the 21 million subscriber mark and averages over 200 million views a month across its prolific-and-still-growing library of mostly Let’s Play videos. Those are some incredibly impressive numbers, but they’re even more extraordinary once you know Kjellberg doesn’t currently have his own internet connection.

The native Swede and now resident of the UK moved into a new flat several weeks ago and has had connectivity issues ever since. Kjellberg used to shoot and upload multiple videos in a 24-hour period, but the release of new PewDiePie content has slowed to just one video a day (to the distress of many individuals in his fan base) as he’s trying to remedy issue with his local internet service provider.

Until his internet is up and running, Kjellberg’s doing what everyone does (or at least tries to do) when their connection goes down. He’s stealing it from his neighbors.
