My Internet bill ran a whopping Rs.6100 this month and I decided to do something about it. As part of my research to cut down on my atrocious bill, I called up a known person at my ISP’s office and he advised me to disconnect my net connection at 10:30 p.m and then re-connect. This way, he said, I would take advantage of the half rate during night times. oh boy! I had always thought this half rate billing would automatically begin by itself. But no…. it wouldn’t take effect until I re-connect. Now, why don’t the company publish such useful information in its instruction booklet. Sigh!
BSNL can give you trouble even when you don’t subscribe their services. Today, they came with an army of people and dug trenches to lay their new cables. In the process, they damaged the Touchtel telephone lines which left me without phone and net connection for better part of the day. When confronted, all they did was shrug their shoulders and promptly said they cannot repair Touchtel telephone lines. Looks like they only have rights to damage other lines. Grrr. Thankfully, the touchtel repair guys responded swiftly and managed to stem the damaged wires.
