I Blame OptusNet Cable

5 AM March 3, 2003

I was going to write a nice article comparing OptusNet Cable with other cable service providers here in Australia. However, the cable connection has been dodgy these past few days - sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.

Optus sent out a technician, who saw the problem, but it went away when he poked some things. He swapped a signal splitter out when I basically insisted that he do something. That afternoon, the connection dropped in and out four or five times.

There has been a bit of rain around - I wonder if some water got into a coax cable in the wall or under the house?

There is another technician coming out on Tuesday. We'll see what happens. Meanwhile, these posts will be a bit erratic.
