    adsl line

    i thought it had to be tooooo good to be true...cut a long story short...i went to the pav. and made arrangement to canceal my old number and activate the adsl on an exsisting line at my new premises...dave where is the head banging similie.

    when i spoke to the lady at the pav. she seemed to have the whole thing under control...well i am not going to bore you with the details but it is back to banging my head f*** head on my desk again and waiting in long ques again...why people cant just get simple things right first time.

    i need to employ someone just to take care of these kind of problems so i dont get myself worked up...and rather concentrate on what i do best...because nothing is gona change.

    Don't let them know you've already been contacted on the same thing. One of them might actually do something - like fix your problem.

    now it calls to 041 numbers waiting in long ques

    maybe someone can give me an easier way to explain this...i need is my old number to be disconnected on the 17/072008 and the exsisting number at the new premises to be upgraded to a telkom 4 option...i cannot think of an easier way to explain this to telkom.

    instead i have now i have been charged for standard line rental...dsl fast bundle...call answer...closer option 4 and closer option 3 and not to forget TI-all access for 1 day at R69.30 well i dont understand all this but its not what i requested.

    just to follow up with regards to my adsl line i have decided to pay the R900+ rather for a transfer from one house to another and just leave it...it works...thats what is important...rather than wasting my time trying to fight this will end up costing me wasted time away from work and stress which i dont need right now...and this is the biggest problem in this country...we let people get away with things and thats why the service for everything is just getting worse...it just not worth the hassle just smile and collect.
