  1. Hola Luis!

    Don’t start me on the subject of the ISP we have in common!

    I have lost internet and phone access at home too this week, no idea when it’ll get sorted.

    In the meantime I found this article on the BBC recently, interesting reading, not that we need reminding that here in Spain we continue to be overcharged for inferior products and service.

    Rant over! 😉

  2. ¡Hola Simon!

    Thanks a bunch for dropping by and for sharing the pain with me / us. I am not sure what to say, whether I would be happy I am not the only one suffering from the same kind of service, or the lack of, rather or be rather upset that time and time again we keep having these serious issues and we are never taken seriously. There are a whole bunch of us doing work remotely from whatever the location and this particular Internet provider needs to figure out where they would want to be: with professionals behaving in a professional manner or elsewhere.

    Just this morning I was having some more problems with the connection, including with the brand new router and got again that lovely message of we will get back to you within 24 to 48 hours, sending a technician over! There you go. A complete week wasted trying to fix something that should have been fixed in the first place last Monday, if anything.

    Funny enough, I went for lunch, came back and everything *miraculously* is back. Up and running. How long? Don’t know for sure, but, at least, I managed to get everything I needed from the Net just in case.

    Oh, and thanks for the link! Check this other link as well from a good friend of mine over here in the Canaries where he provides a very good and comprehensive overview of where broadband connectivity is in Spain, or, rather, where it is not!

    Either way, good luck with the connection and hope to see you back up soon again! Thanks again for the feedback!
