Re: People hate on Telstra
Yeah in a country some several parsecs long and wide, they keep them handy in a place that is as remote to all other exchanges as they can be.
And while it's a trailer mounted module, I doubt that they will ever go to the effort of airlifting any of them, to places that have the roads cut by flooding etc..
So 4 days 24/7 driving to the far north west..... and when we get to about half way there, we can stop and then camp by the side of a flooded river for 6 weeks...
And while the customers try to ring us every day for the while 7 or 8 weeks, we of course (Telstra) will have no record of their calls - because the phones are not working! "Perfect!"
In the meantime, we will charge them line AND phone rental, and when they want to dispute the bill we will say, "While the contract does say we are responsible for the lines from your house to the exchange, it says nothing about there not being an exchange, or even one that does not work - so all you customers owe us $2797 in call out fees."
Yeah Fuck Telstra.
