The internet connection in this place is becoming increasingly slow some times. This township that I live in is far away from the rest of the world and also it is a new one. Apparently, BSNL hasn’t heard of it and expanded their web of broadband services to this place. People who cannot live with internet (like me) are forced to depend on wireless broadband and there is only one dependable service; tikona wireless broadband. Like the name itself, their service also is a bit wonky.
I called up their customer care the other day to complain about their fluctuating speed. I wanted them to send someone to check the antenna they had installed on this building for us to draw internet from the sky! They had installed it in some place that no one except Iron Man or Spider Man could reach. The customer care guy (in a most weird accent) told me that ‘Everything will be all right, Sir.’ I felt like I was calling a dear friend after a temporary fight with my girlfriend. He will probably say the same thing to me (except for the ‘Sir’), ‘Everything will be all right, man’. But then he will add something more,‘I’m gonna come over right away… don’t worry… I’ll get beer! Let’s mend it!’ I wish the customer care guy would say something like that… ‘I’m going to send someone over there immediately to check it, Sir. Let’s mend it.’ No! He didn’t say that.
So, here I am sitting with a slow internet connection where WP pages take ages to load up. Facebook is taking even more time and the only thing that opens up without testing my patience level is Google. But, who wants Google? I certainly do not. Do you?
