The Broadband Blues

I’ve got the broadband blues,
had no internet for a month,
I’m living on a “hotpsot”,
and my mobiles paying dues.
Had to ditch my old provider,
they couldn’t get it right,
rolled the dice to choose another
I’ve got the broadband blues.

  3. I hope it’s not long before you’re reconnected to the web, Claudette. You’re living one of my worst nightmares. 😱

    1. Yeah, it’s frustrating Hugh. me new provider has already had 10 days – and I haven’t even got an email from them yet. Went on chat to check, and they said “It won’t be long”. Not holding my breath. Not sure what has happened to good old fashioned service!

  4. Reminds me when the Spawn and I had no internet for almost a year. We had to do something called “socializing” and something else known as “talking.” It was tough, but we got through it…just.
    Hope it all gets sorted out soon.

    1. 🙂 Yeah. I just miss the ability to upload photos and connect to the one game I play online. We are adjusting, but it is more frustration at the lack of service from the providers that has me antsy.

  5. Oh No! We’ve had the Broadband Blues this year too, just back online after a week and a half with no internet or phone. Not sure about your “support service” but I was SEVERELY STRESSED by ours. Love your poem. 🙂

    1. Yep, my sress levels when dealing with them were horrendous – which is why I ditched them. Have moved to an “aussie” service, but it’s been 10 days and I haven’t heard anything from them either. Not feeling very happy.

      1. When we go camping we use a little prepaid mobile unit and having that was useful but nothing relieved the “helpline horrors”!

  6. I lost internet capability on my phone which has been killing me, but still have house wifi and an ipad and pc. You clearly have it worse, poor thing.

    1. I’m actually lucky with the mobile, because up till late last year I never bothered with data on my phone, just used it for a few calls. It’s getting a workout on the brief periods I put it into personal hotspot over the last month so I can connect.

      1. I did the same, never used the data. Became quickly used to it once I started; like a drug!! 😉
