Living in Greece

A practical guide to moving, living, working & traveling in Greece, plus musing and misadventures from an American in Athens

Communications blackout

flame-soft.jpgThanks to the excellent service we receive from OTE, my entire municipality had no telephone or Internet service for 24 hours after a grid caught fire. No apologies and no credit to our bill, as usual.

I’ll post something significant tomorrow (assuming another grid won’t catch fire) since our connection has returned, my research is done, and I’m now in coding hell.

P.S. Mel, we may be looking at a switch 😉

Sounds like you need a switch! Either that or you just live in a doomed area. I hope we aren’t about to move into one of those.

24 hours only? 😉

Funny, my DSL is down too, I’m told it will be three days. You can be sure that when I’m done with Bell I’ll get a free month. After all, as I told them today, I’ve been their customer for 18 years….ciao

Mel, actually I thought of you because you told me you have such reliable service so I think you’ll be fine. We live in a popular but not such a populous area compared to where I lived in the center, so I don’t see what’s the problem…and neither does OTE, apparently. 😉

Arammos – LOL! That killed me when I read that. We have been down for entire weekends before.

Rositta – Yeah, I remember the good ol’ days when someone would apologize to me AND offer me free stuff without complaining. That doesn’t work here, I’ve tried.

Sorry, comments are closed at this time.
