    Rant: Give me my internet

    Advertisements





    WHY DOESN'T THE INTERNET WORK AT MY PLACE???? I HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM SINCE I GOT HERE, AND EVERYTIME IT GETS TURNED ON, IT GETS TURNED OFF FOR NO GOOD REASON. IT TOOK ME 1, YES 1 ENTIRE, MONTH TO GET IT "ACTIVATED" AFTER SCHOOL STARTED, NOT ORIENTATION, AFTER THE FIRST DAY OF CLASSES. OF COURSE, IT HADN"T BEEN ACTIVATED EVEN THOUGH I HAD PAID 3 MONTHS IN ADVANCE, SO IT TOOK ANOTHER WEEK FOR THE GUY TO COME BACK AND TELL ME HE HAD PLUGGED MY APT INTO THE WRONG ROUTER PORT. OF COURSE IT DIED AGAIN 3 DAYS LATER BECUASE SOMEONE ELSE HAD COME AND UNPLUGGED MY APT BY ACCIDENT. THEN IT TOOK A WEEK FOR SOMEONE TO PLUG ME BACK IN AGAIN (IF YOU ARE KEEPING SCORE THIS IS 1 MONTH, 2 WEEKS SINCE SCHOOL STARTED AND I"VE ONLY HAD INTERNET FOR 3 DAYS.) ALL I WANT TO DO IS USE THE INTERNET TO EMAIL AND CHAT BEFORE GOING TO BED WITHOUT HAVING TO WALK TO THE CAMPUS. ITS 1:30 IN THE MORNING AND NOTHING, IT JUST WORKED AROUND 6:00 AND IM SURE IF I CALL TWICE A DAY C&W WILL COME WITH AN APOLOGY AND EXCUSE A WEEK FROM NOW FOR WHY I HAVE BEEN CUT OFF FOR THE 3RD TIME THIS MONTH.

    If I were you, I'd cancel internet so you're not paying for a service that doesn't work. Think of it this way - more incentive to study on campus.

    Dam my ears are still ringing dude.

    If it makes you feel better, we are pretty much in the same boat.

    When internet does work, I get too excited and play a song on it. But its gone before the song's over.

    I cant cancel mine directly from cw. But would be nice if the landlord canceled and got some other company instead (if there is any)..
    If you aint got it in your genes, sweat it out.

    That country is a huge scam. Your internet is probably plugged in for a few days to keep you dwindling as a paying customer.

    Then, after a few days, the guy who works at the hub will unplug yours and plug it into his cousin's place (a fellow local of the island) and hook him up with free internet, all while YOU pay for it. This is done because the guy at the hub gets a hookup from his cousin who hooks him up some way also. The island is a network of people who are all related and hook each other up at the expense of the students.
    Good luck.

    Thanx for pointing out I closed the thread. I meant to close a case in the moderator forum! Oops! I guess that's what I get for multitasking!

    P.S. Reign, it's not always about you

    Damn and here I thought everyone participated in the forum for my entertainment. Btw - this makes for excellent stress relief. So thank you, island thrift, for taking the bait EVERY time.
