"We've got a confirmed date back. On 24 Oct 2012, Slingshot will be activating your new 'Better Network' services at your place."
Followed, 4 hours later by:
"We’re really sorry, but your local exchange doesn’t have enough ports (a fancy word for connections).......
We’ve put you on the waiting list and we’ll let you know when a connection comes up, ASAP. However we do have some good news …
We CAN give you free dial-up!"
So, being stuck between a signed rental agreement, a business run from home and polytech done online, what are my options? Has anyone been on one of these wait lists and it resolved reasonably quickly?
Are there reliable (and cost effective) truely wireless providers?
Essentially, we move in to this place tomorrow and I absolutely would have bailed out of the rental agreement had I known I would be back in the 90s for internet connections.
