Yesterday evening a technician came by to check what is wrong with my phone and internet connection. A nice guy, but he couldn’t help. He at least found out that the main line in front of the house was damaged during work one street over. He didn’t give me any hope that it will be resolved this year. They need to find out where the damage is, then need to repair it. None of that will happen before the new year. That at least was his estimation. “I could be wrong.” His words. Ha. HA!
But that is only half the problem. Inside the house the cables are not able to handle the new fast standard from my cable provider. So, even if they might be able to fix the problem outside, I still won’t be able to get online.
On Monday I have an appointment with Telekom, because a solution to the general problem with the cable provider is not in sight. I might need to change the provider alltogether if I want highspeed access (or any access at all). Of course, that will also take at least four weeks.
So, the year ends just like it started. It SUCKS.
In the meantime, leiCa and Cokie will provide you with fun posts. And Cokie promised to write a review. I can’t, because… see above. No internet means no iTunes.
