Smile Tpg!

My sweetie's internet died for good the other day... since I'm about 800 times better with computers than he is, I sorted it for him, haha. I wasn't familiar with ADSL2+ but it wasn't too strange, and I figured out a fix to why his internet was CONSTANTLY dropping out- long distance lovers NEED OUR NET!

Incidentally, y'all, please note that the hardware you use to receive your intertubes from whatever company you're with matters quite a lot. He had a Belkin modem, which is aight but no great shakes, and I asked him to upgrade it to a Billion 7800NXL after doing some research(we have Belkin here in the US, but not Billion, as far as I know) and now the internet is fixed, it hasn't dropped out so far and life is much better. I learned a lot about TPG in the course of my research and I'm quite glad he didn't call them as I first suggested. He said they wouldn't have it fixed for days! I didn't know what he could mean. I have a much better idea now as to why he was so resistant....

I've been casting about for what I will do in my new fair land, and I suspect I ought to start my own telecommunications business. The startup funds might be an issue, but the customer service will clearly blow TPG out of the water.

Oh, and the Billion 7800 was only about $130 at MSY, if you're interested. The only issue with it is that he needed it pronto and it was hard for me to find in the local stores.(I am a thorough, thorough researcher...) Most places near him that did sell modems just sold the cruddier ones. Buying online might be cheaper.
