Things That You Need To Know.

VM Speak via an offshore call centre: "Yes, it will be fixed at 10:30 on X Day.".

Buffalo Dirt!

"Doing upgrades in your area. It'll be fixed on ---."  Buffalo Dirt!

"Our highly trained engineers are on the job, and working for you." Buffalo Dirt!

The VM network is on it's knees in places (A lot of places.). 

Don't even bother to talk to the offshore fellers. VM only has review dates (Which mean nothing, as far as a fix goes.).

Sorry, you new fellers to the forum, but that's how it is. Take it, or leave it (Run like hell if you're still within your 14 day cool off period, and you're Over Utilised/ Peak Time Agg', etc, or anything else that VM can use as a Buzz Term.).

Good luck all!

Re: Things That You Need To Know.

I could go on: Offshore

"Let me take over your 'puter. I'll sort your problems out."

"Oh, I'll send  signal down your line."

BUFFALO DIRT!

Re: Things That You Need To Know.

I must admit, I'm waiting for a certain VM Superuser to explain it all to me. (My deadly foe, when I first mentioned that it was rubbish in my area. Two years ago.). Smiley Happy

Re: Things That You Need To Know.

I get it every time that me and the Mrs walk into our local Asda: "Come away Pete, don't hit them!" . Smiley Happy Smiley Happy Smiley Happy

Re: Things That You Need To Know.

I think that it's the grabbing me by the collar that gets me, by the Mrs, in Asda, when i'm doing my domestic duty. And some 'erbert wants to sell me something that I know that doesn't work. "Oh, that sounds lovely mate, how much is that?" Smiley Happy Smiley Happy Smiley Happy

Re: Things That You Need To Know.

I had the "We found a fault in your area, it will be fixed by 9pm" tonight, guess what my speed is at 9:20pm

BTW, I didn't expect it to be fixed, not one bit!
