When I contacted my Internet Service Provider in late August and asked them to move my account to Montréal, I was hoping that things would get done rather quickly. Looks like I was wrong.
Although they were quick to take my payment, they never contacted the technicians responsible for setting my connection, and its now been three weeks since I’ve had Internet access at home. This means that, other than my work computer (which I shouldn’t use to surf the web) and my cell phone (with its small touch screen and frustrating windows mobile keyboard) I’ve been without the Internet for about a month.
It’s not that I’m addicted to the internet, though you have to admit it would be useful for someone who just moved to a new city. Finding places of interest that would usually take less than a second with Google maps, now rely on my poor yellow-pages skills and a whole lot of luck.
Anywho, after a quick call placed to my ISP, they’ve apologized, refunded my unused connection time, and finally called a tech this week (who should be stopping by sometime Wednesday). So if all goes to plan, I’ll finally be able to surf from home once again, as well as use my VoIP phone. Also, I’ll finally be able to post RAWR part 3, which has been sitting in my Folaji.com inbox for over a month.
Lets just hope they remembered to call the tech…
