Finally after two follow-ups, our internet connection is back. It went kaput on me early yesterday morning while I was updating our Catholic page at Facebook, had it back just a few minutes ago.
During our first follow-up, the agent who answered the call said that if they can’t fix it in twenty-four hours, they would send someone to check our line. This morning, I asked my son to call up again and the one he talked to said, they are having a system upgrade. Whatever that means, our internet connection wasn’t back yet so he asked to talk to their supervisor but was not able to. We have this forced migration from SmartBro to PLDT Homebro only last April 15 so I thought it was the same complaint that some of my friends are going through – no dial tone in their landline phones, slow internet connection or no internet connection at all.
A few minutes ago, somebody from PLDT called us up and asked if our internet connection is now working. It is (as I type this). He explained that it is not only our area that was affected, it was a nationwide thing.
I realized that a day without internet sucks…big time. Then I thought, have we become this dependent on social media that the day is not complete without it? I was able to finish another book though and started one more. We were able to garden and spent a lot of time with our three pets.
Oh but it’s good to be back…..blogging again!
