I'm so pissed!!

More than a week ago my internet service provider made a huge data base mistake and they decreased my band width by half... I've been phoning them and visiting their office almost every day to get this solved, but at least I had a connection until now...

Yesterday after they tried something new to restore my normal bandwidth they actually screw things so bad that now I have no connection at all!

Man, I'm so pissed... right now I'm posting from a friends computer...

I can't practice my GMC lessons, read the forums etc... This is so annoying. I will have to call them again this afternoon and see if they can do something, worst thing is each call I make is pretty expensive.

8 days since they screwed my connection, this is beginning to feel like a nightmare sad.gif

Exactly- that goes with everything.

The magic words are- "Fine, i'll take my business elsewhere..."

Works like a charm, although we all know you can't be bothered to changed, just hope they don't call your bluff wink.gif

Sorry to hear about all the fuss though..

I'm still screwed....

Phoned them again yesterday, and they say they are working on it, but still no solution... I even told them that it was my last call, and I would leave if they don't solve it asap...

At least I'm spending this weekend at my girlfriends' so I will have connection there!

It's not Telefonica by any chance Fran?

I'd switch - assuming that there aren't any penalties/lock in clauses. Lots of ISPs around so lots of competition - you'd think your ISP would be fighting to keep you rather then driving you to leave sad.gif .

Cheers,
Tony

No, it's not telefónica, it's ONO, cable.

All ISPs are the same, a bunch of liers! All goes well until you have a problem! Oh well... right now I'm at my girlfriends', but if they don't solve it by monday I will switch, been with them a while so no penalties I hope. Keeping fingers crossed... it's a pain to switch anyway.

Just wanted to make a small update to this little episode I'm going through: after two weeks they STILL haven't fixed my connection...

Summer is aproaching and I will move to my girlfriends' for two months (her connection does work!), so I will more than probably leave my ISP, and hopefully they can solve this when I re-connect in two months time, though I think I might as well choose a different ISP next time around... mad.gif

They have given me 6 months with 50% off already, but the fact that they still haven't even sent a tech guy with a new cable modem to my house shows how dumb these people are... I have already told them my MAC number 5 times to 5 different people because they had it wrong again and again! blink.gif

At least the connection works, at just 20 KBps, when it's supposed to be 6Mb... go figure!, at least I can surf the boards and stuff, but it takes ages for gmc videos & youtube stuff to load.

Oh well. Enough ranting!, at least I can post :/
