Abstract

This paper attempted to articulate a hierarchy of fundamental motives that serve as both an integrative framework and generative foundation for future empirical research. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs (HoN) promulgates that self-actualization, often cited as the highest-order motivation, propels us to fathom our true finesse and attain our ideal self. 150 random samples were collected and tested hypotheses using regression analysis and descriptive, quantitative, and cross-sectional research design. The results indicated a significant relationship between the Internet and Wi-Fi and other levels of needs. The findings were utilized to create a ray of light on the perception that wireless internet has become a basic need, viz., food, shelter, and cloth for many people.
