Separation...Divorce may be on the cards

We're not exactly the Smiths but my love affair with Zain/Airtel is,...may be over...well, the BIS that is. I'm fed up with not having coverage, my messages not delivering, and so on. I still love their cheap calls and texts. So I have decided to go and try Vodafone's BIS. i'm not expecting a lot, just the internet on my blackberry, without intermittent breaks in transmission, prone to happen when you need it the most.
And just when I made my decision I got a call from them promising to sort out my issue...but
...Heard it all before
(All of your lies
All of your sweet talk
Baby this Baby that)
But your lies ain't workin' now
Look who's hurtin' now
See I had to shut you down
I had to shut you down...

I honestly think it's because a lot of people have joined their network but i'm off...for a month at least...


I feel bad that i'm writing this post so late...happened the day after the ignominious Tottenham riot. I'm surprised i didn't write it at once, considering how delighted I was with the service. Just shoes me how true the saying it that bad news travels waaaaaay faster than good news!
I was and still am chuffed with my vodafone broadband service.

it was installed an amazing working day after I paid for it AND they even got here within the time frame that I specified! plus they fixed a previously unknown fault with the line and 'earthed' it (or something like that). I was pleased as punch with their service, and tipped accordingly. One rejected it outright, the second was more 'accommodating'.
i sat in front of my laptop, ready to surf the net...but there was no connection! I was livid! after all the tinkering and back-and-forths these two morons could not do a simple installation!??
the phone was one of the idiots...informing me that they were testing my line, "your internet is off right?" Ashamed, i meekly whispered a yes, and they restored the connection, promising to tweak it if I ever had issues.
So far so very good!

I was singing their praises to my friend when he told me that they had followed him right home and mounted not one but two poles in order to facilitate the installation.
it's great when people do their job without demanding our tears! Kudos to , i'm going to take a leap of faith and try their Blackberry Internet Service too.
