One of the first things we did before agreeing to move here is check out the internet connectivity. We were pleasantly surprised to find a variety of choices. We asked questions, checked out online reviews, solicited personal testimony, then went with an internet/cable/phone package. Turns out it wasn’t a great choice.
The equipment installer arrived as scheduled and did his thing, but it has been almost a month now. Our phone line still isn’t activated and we have no internet connectivity. We do have TV signal — which would be great if we actually had a TV (remember, ours is cruising the Pacific).
I guess we should have gone with a satellite company more experienced in servicing rural areas. Anybody know of one?
Right now I don’t know what I am going to do for net when it’s time to move into our own house. I’ve called the service provider 3 times. Before I even finish explaining my problem the little bubblehead who answers the phone transfers me to the installer — who has already done his job!
Oh! Except the last time. The last time I called I told her I didn’t even know my assigned phone number. She made a really rude noise and hung up on me!
I got smart and went to their local office. It’s closed. There’s a note on the door saying where payments can be mailed. I’ll be danged if I am paying for service I can’t even use!
