Don`t call PN with your line/connection problems.....

Instead.... Call Theresa May ....

 

Quote from her conference speech... ( via Daily Mirror  http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/theresa-mays-energy-price-cap-11286632   )

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Theresa May has unveiled grand plans to "bring an end to rip-off energy prices once and for all".

"We will always take on monopolies and vested interests when they are holding people back," she declared.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

 

Ok... so she was talking specifically about the power companies... BUT.... she does say... ............

 

"We will always take on monopolies and vested interests when they are holding people back,"

and who is the "monopoly" with the "vested interest" that causes all the PN  ( and other ISP`s  ).. connection problems  ? ? ? 

 

Anyone got her number to add to the "contact us" list.... 

or would she be on "Live Chat" tomorrow do you think  ? ? ?

I wouldn't be surprised if contacting her was a quicker and easier option than contacting plusnet.

After all contacting local MP's is never slow (for me) and I've always been answered. They never say we'll get back to you and then don't.

If she's working on tackling the commercial monopolies, then it's time BskyB was broken back up into Sky and British Satellite Broadcasting (BSB) to break up that monopoly, bring back the squarial!!! Cheesy

This year I had a PN support guy apologise for mistakenly calling me back on a query. It belies my thoughts that they weren't allowed to make outgoing calls Wink

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: Don`t call PN with your line/connection problems.....

There has always and still is a monopoly with ISPs. Just have a look and see who really owns PN and the others. There has only ever been a proliferation of ways to get more money out of users and the system. Its curious how despite the exhaustive and lavish promises, that nothing has been done to improve the service to folks who do not live in a  town or other conurbation .

Most remote or rural users like me get increasingly slow and unreliable connections, but of course we have to pay the same price or more for third rate service. Example: buffering of youtube to the extent that its unwatchable: why ? the max internet speed I have ever had (for a few mins. was 4.5mbps) Usually its 2 or less. I regularly have to reboot the router to even get onto the internet. 

I could go on, but you get the picture.

Re: Don`t call PN with your line/connection problems.....

My line from the cabinet is only ~280 metres. Why do I have to pay the same as those whose line is 10 or 20 times longer and therefor more liable to fail?
I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

Shirley, you should pay more for the higher line speed. Wink

Speed has nothing to do with line rental costs and don't call me Shirley Wink

Re: Don`t call PN with your line/connection problems.....

Never thought I'd read about a Conservative, least of all a Conservative Prime Minister, rail against monopolies and vested interests. That sounds more like those nasty Socialist types if you ask me. Wink

Maybe, just maybe, this Vicars daughter has finally seen the light.

All essential services and the internet has become one of them, should not be run entirely by profiteers and corporations in order to line the pockets of bosses and shareholders, period. 

 

 

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.
