French Connection

Here I am in France at my apartment in Les Gets 74260. Wanadoo aka Orange have been charging me 24.90 Euro a month for a 1MB connection. However, as you can see there is a missing light on my router modem. Yes that’s right there is no ADSL on the line. Trying to contact their service assistance on 3901 sucks big time even for native French speakers, we are now on our second 72 hour promise of an engineer. I’ve now paid Bernard of Kankoo Informatique in Morzine to try and sort out the Orange guys. However, I’m not hopeful ,they seem even worse than NTL and BT. I wonder how Loic gets on with his ADSL connections.

All a bit terrible for an apartment that you only use occasionally. So off to The Boomerang Hotel Stella again to post this post.
