500 bucks per line!

It’s going to cost $500 dollars per line to get a phone line into our new house (and I need 2) The cable runs right outside our front door and it’s surrounded by other houses so it’s not like they have to run wiring into the countryside.  $1000 down the drain.

F*cking Telecom and their virtual monopoly!!!!!!!!!!!

I am well pissed off………. and there is nothing I can do about it ‘cos there’s no other suppliers to 98% of the country.

    That’s insane!  Why can’t they just run the one when they run them to the other houses? And then charge for an extra one. Bizzare.

    How about wireless internet and a cellphone as your main line?

    guru – i thought about that but wireless access isn’t available there (we’re a bit behind in regards to wireless over here) and the carriers really screw you on cellphone calls.
