High Speed Internet Installation
Have you ever called an internet service provider, to arrange to have high speed internet service installed, and discovered that getting it installed in a reasonable time frame is not an option? Welcome to the real world of less than stellar service from your local cable company.
What follows is a transcript of a telephone conversation between a person who needs to have high speed internet installed within a few months and someone who is bound and determined to drag it out for up to a year. Please bear in mind that the names have been changed to protect the not so innocent and any resemblance to a real life situation is merely a coincidence. Or is it? Maybe a little bit of both. I hope you enjoy my not so subtle attempt at tech humor. I invite you to express your opinions and share your frustrating experiences in the comments below. If you enjoyed this post, please feel free to share it with others. Thank you for stopping by. Craig Herberg
