I finally have internet service at home again, after a little over three weeks of waiting for Bell Sympatico to get off their collective duff and actually deliver as promised. After being told for the third time that our modem would be in our hands in 5-7 days (after having waited that amount of time before asking, of course) and that only after that would they be able to book a technician to set things up, we bit the bullet and cancelled the order, opting to go with Rogers instead, even though they had inferior upload for the same price (which was the main thing i’d been after). I’ve also always had issues with cable since it can get sluggish when too many people in the neighborhood are using it. I don’t know… we’ll see how things go. We’re on a month to month plan, fortunately, so we may well go back to Bell if we find Rogers’ service is just not working out.
In any case, we’re about 60% moved in… and I’m pretty confident I’ve dealt with all remaining inquiries. If I haven’t gotten to you yet, please email me at aki.shichiroji (a t ) gmail.com and I will be happy to help.
