My internet’s been wonky for the last month. Turns out that it’s the fault of an external cable that runs from under the paved road to University Road.
It took five calls, a whole bunch of fixit and maintenance men, five SingTel trucks, and a stoppage in the middle for them to investigate an underground cable…and I don’t even know if the problem’s going to be solved yet.
But such a large turnout for a wear-and-tear problem?
That’s just massively cool. Kudos to the guys on making our cables reliable for Facebook, Email, and of course porn (Work comes in a close fourth).
Update: After three hours, five friends, opening lobangs [manholes], and threading a cable under the paved road. They’ve fixed it! I got my phoneline back! W00t! Thanks cable guys…that was great work!
