Nepal Telecom -- Pirates of Nepal-'ean'Uff. i was supposed to make this post on Thursday. But, it's late night 12:09 am and already Friday. Anyway, i consider Thursday as a black day for me. In our culture, not all days are good to initiate some important work. For goodluck days, it's call 'Swaja' and for badluck days, it's call 'Sijja'. I never believed these things but today, my important job has been delayed and now , i confirm this Thursday as my badluck day. I'm pretty much disheartened at the moment. Anyways, my father called me up and boosted my ego. As he says, this is life and life goes on. That's right, i've to face obstacles.
And, i just met a friend online, Sulav Aryal. He was sharing some tech-guffs with me and i was enjoying chat with him. When he started to share his part of world, i got frightened how badly this Nepal Telecom sucked him.
" I live life at 56kbps just like my internet connection slow and dull. Uneventful as ever but still expensive. NTC claims BroadBand adsl is going to be the savior but I feel like lecturing about the definition of broadband internet because NTC as we know it would be setting a new definition of broadband internet. 64 kbps is going to be new broadband I am waiting for that day. Everybody knows why so called IT Park is empty now. All they were asking for was 512 kbps and they couldn't deliver it. Hey did you know that the data service from cdma phone does not cross the 10kbps mark. They promised the speed of up to 192kbps. For those who are waiting I say dream on. One day pigs might fly. Any way adsl is coming and lunch date is set as jan 2008. This is no hoax I have got it in my mail. I asked those guys at asknepaltelecom.com. Now all I have to do is arrange some loan to buy the adsl modem of course. Can anyone arrange me some loan I am broke. "
Oh god, this is Nepal Telecom's treachery. This is how they make loot out of people. They tell one thing and do another things. After all, it is said privatized,however there are reminiscences of old hypocrite conventional work pattern.
I wonder, what happens if all the people in the country at the same times ditch this Nepal Telecom and get used to with Mero Mobile. Certainly, people will have better connectivity and no more 'ahiley besta cha (busy signal message)' message from Nepal Telecom. I really have a hard time calling to NT network through Mero Mobile service. And, i blame only and only to those NT badass. I still remember when those NT didn't give spicenepal(meromobile) to interlink with their network.
more on next time, feeling bit sleepy..uh.. but will make one more post..
