Saturday evening I came back from work and hoping for a nice quite evening at home with some tunes and browse online. Well I did get that for sometime and then I went to watch a little tv. Once I came back to my system after dinner, I found that I was disconnected from the net. A quick check ensured that none of the wires or cables were loose or unplugged. I called up my ISP service provider and asked them if there was an issue at their end. Turns out that there was a local network issue and that it would take 6 working hours to fix it. Well since I am not naive to think that they would get working on it at 10:30 pm, I thought that it would be better to check it in the morning.
Morning came and after a superb sleep of almost 8 hours, I checked again and saw that the internet was still offline for me. I called up the ISP at 11 am and asked what was the progress. I was told that it would be fixed by afternoon as it was 6 working hours. I said ok. I watched movies and read and by 4pm I called up again and asked why on Earth was it not fixed again. This time I was told that it seemed it was a major problem (no shit Sherlock) and that their engineers were working on it but they couldn’t give me an estimate. Atleast they weren’t going to wave the 6 working hours in my face!
Well, I couldn’t get online for all of Sunday. I checked every couple of hours but no luck. Apparently it was a big problem that only affected one part of the city. Today morning was the same and I left for the office at around 9:20 am and only reached back at 8:45 pm so not sure as to when it got fixed but it is working now. I get so bored without the internet and I download a lot of movies and tv series on it so I am very dependent on it. TATA Indicom please get things fixed much sooner.
