ExactlyDoubt anyone else bid for the contract.
That was one of the reasons I dropped Dish Network. I had been a customer since '96, and in 2005 my bill was getting out of hand, outdated hardware. I called and inquired about getting a break or the same as a new customer or even a hardware update. Nope. Ok, please cancel immediately. OOO...oooo.... wait a minute, let me pass you to our manager! Please stay with us!!! Nope. Bye.
True, but people also know he service could be so much better, that other people have true fiber optic speed and reliability.Do any of you what the best cable company is?
The one you don't have.
Dropped cable over one year ago, now I Hulu Live. Little to no buffering and I can watch what I like, when I choose.
Not speaking to the issue of what the cable company did or did not do to your equipment, but your installation is exactly the reason they have to send technicians out.Ahhhhrrrrggggg. Turned rental back over to us the first of the month, have some repairs to do. Called sometime around the third week of August
We cant get a tech out there til the 10th.
Why does a tech need to show up? Everythings been working fine
We always send a tech for a new install.
It's not new, those cables have been there for ten years or more, everything's been working fine.
It's a new install of service. Tech has to check levels.
IT IS WORKING FINE
We'll see on the 10th, Sir.
So, back when we lived there, I wired the whole joint. One high quality splitter right inside the attic, sent signal to a six foot run right to where the modem and router were. Second leg went 12 feet to another splitter in the pantry, four way this time, right to to the living room and three bedrooms. Again, high quality splitter, nothing from Walmart.
We lived there and used tvs in all four rooms. No second run is longer than 25-30 feet, the house is right at 1,000 feet good cable, waterproof cable quality connectors.
Tenants mention on leaving that only the living room and master bedroom work. Odd, I thought. They did mention that a few years back an oil truck tore the line down. But the oil company was going to pay to fix it.
So now that they have gone, I look in the pantry where the four way is. Master and living room feeds disconnected and hooked to a cable company splitter. One of the lines has a red "service may be interrupted if this line is removed" tag on it.
Today, I go up into the attic. My two way there has been cut off, which killed the feed to the internet port. Not disconnected, just diked off.
Pretty sure I'll get nowhere asking for records, but we'll see. Just another example of petty cable installer tyrants. "If it isn't my special splitter, MUST DESTROY!!!!!"
