Fwd: Link utilization

Are you recently returned from the diaspora

On a serious note, did you read all the fine print before you put pen
to paper?
Do you have a copy of what you signed?
In Kenya (sorry to be like this) we have downtimes which are not planned &
communicated. Sometimes they last days, but the ISPs feel nothing. You will
never see any credit note when they bill you after such downtimes.
Hey, I hope you will follow your case to the end though. I suggest you take
on the MD 1-on-1 and see how far you’ll go with the matter. It’s sometimes
a lot easier than engaging the techies/CS reps.
However, I know one thing for sure, if you are not on a dedicated/business
package, you’ll not go very far in your pursuit.
