So earlier today a guy from my broadband tech support team came out to my house to fix ongoing issues with the connection. It kept dropping. This morning, it was down for hours. I wasnt sure why this was happening. I have Efibre, so it really shouldnt happen at all. He looked at it, and then he said he’d test my line. He did that, and it looked like my upload speed wasnt set high enough, so he reset that first. Then he tested again, but there were still faults on the line, so he said he’d look at the phone sockets, and so he did. And what do ya know! The phone sockets were hit by lightning! Thats what he told me! When we had the last storm lightning must have fried them! So that is why the connection was dropping, so he installed all new phone sockets for me, and woohoo we’re back in business, everythings fine again! I was never so glad than when he fixed it, you should’ve seen me this morning when it was down, I had no clue what to do with myself, I literally was twiddling my thumbs! I could read, and I did, but that was about all I could do. He was a very nice guy too, very chatty and we had a good chat as he worked. So at least its fixed now. He gave his number to me just in case there are any more issues. There shouldnt be though. I was just stunned when he said the phone line was fried! I never expected that to happen!
so I’ve had ongoing issues lately with my internet. its been acting up. disconnecting for a few mins, then coming back on again, this could happen up to 4 times an hour. not all the time, but every few days at least. so a technician from my ISP provider is going to come out on Thursday, thank god! im paying enough for the damn thing. I want it to work! my tv also uses the internet and it wont work without it. so hopefully on Thursday it will be solved. its a pain that it keeps going off! I depend on it and I need it. I need it to work!
Im just frustrated with it. I am also frustrated with the customer service people who answer the phone! The last time I called the lady only wanted to know if I am blind how do I cope? How do I manage? what business is it of hers? She’s supposed to be helping me fix my internet not asking me a ton of personal questions!
When I told her I couldn’t see colours and I needed more of an explanation she didn’t know what to say or do. She said well if you cant see colours then I don’t know what to tell you to do! Talk about having no disability awareness training! She obviously had no clue and so I said ok then whatever, and I just hung up.
I eventually fell asleep around 5 AM.
I was so exhausted. My internet went off just before I went to sleep.
I wasn’t sure if it would come back or not, but I went to bed and decided I would wait until I got up to do anything.
Luckily when I woke up it was back, so I didn’t have to do anything.
I’m so glad! I don’t know how to cope without the internet!
I literally need it to survive! Sad but true!
So now I am awake, up and dressed. Just fed nitro. Will let him out soon. Then going to make a cup of tea.
So good morning all! Happy Tuesday!
so i’ve had no internet all day! it went off around 1 Pm. i was so bored! at first i never noticed it had gone off. i only noticed after about 2 hours. i thought it was just my laptop giving me problems at first, since i’d had a few problems with the computer last night.
i tried everything but nope it wouldnt work! so eventually i checked my phone, and yeah, the mobile data was off! i reset the network, i tried turning the mobile data off and on again, i tried everything I could think of to fix it but still there was nothing!
so i just had to be without it. omg guys! have you tried it? being without the internet i mean? what did we ever do without it! when there was no online world, what did we do then? i’ve never watched so much tv! i watched it for hours, because there was literally nothing else to do!
i dont have wifi at mom and dads, I use my data and use my phones hotspot to connect to the computer! so well I am not sure if the wifi would have even worked either!
I tried calling my providers customer service line, but I got a recording, that said we’re having a major system outage! Go figure! Probably shoulda done that first, right guys? But I didnt! Oh well!
I just waited…and waited…and waited for it to come back on! And finally! Finally after many hours, it did! Yay! I’ve never been so happy! Its great! Now I feel normal again!
Lol I am addicted, what can I say!
