inetprogood evening19:17
Kiloshi inetpro 19:17
inetprohello oom19:17
inetpronice to see my connection actually working for a change19:18
* inetpro been struggling with a very unstable 8ta contract SIM19:18
Kilosai!19:19
Kilosnot your router19:19
Kilosmine rocks19:19
inetprowell funny enough the prepaid SIM was working fine when the other was unstable19:19
Kilosjust mail them and theyll fix it19:20
inetprobut can't work too long on prepaid, getting very expensive19:20
Kilosor tweet them then they sort it even quicker19:20
inetprowell I logged a call on Saturday and am still waiting for a techie to call19:20
Kilosbest to talk directly to the data peeps19:21
Kilos183 i think is the number19:21
Joe_knockWhy do you guys not use ADSL or WISP? No connection/signal ?19:22
Kilosno fone lines19:22
Kiloscopper theft19:22
inetproKilos: well they're quite quick to help on the chat interface as well, but they can not get into much detail19:22
Kiloschat interface?19:23
inetproon the page where you check your data19:23
inetprounder Help see "Chat to an Agent"19:24
Kilosoh wow i didnt even notice that19:24
inetprobut only problem is that you need to be online for that to work19:24
Kilosyeash19:24
Kilosyeah too19:24
inetprohappened several time this weekend that even the prepaid was unstable19:25
Kilosthe tweet thing is best i think, then they tweet you to email them19:25
inetproJoe_knock: no physical lines anymore in my area19:25
inetproall stolen19:25
Kilosis it not some bird that knocked you yagi skeef19:25
inetproKilos: I got onto the roof this weekend but no, was not that19:26
Joe_knockcopper theft has been a problem for at least 10 years, we should've had fibre a long long time ago19:26
inetproJoe_knock: I agree19:26
Kilossignal strenght the same as it always was?19:26
Kilosstrength19:27
inetprosad that only a very small part is covered for FTTH in Pretoria at this stage19:27
inetproat least from Telkom's side19:27
Kiloseventually theyll be all over19:28
Kilosexcept maybe to plots19:28
Joe_knockIt'll take at least 10 years 19:28
Joe_knockapparently brooklyn is zoned for FTTH19:28
Kilossjoe 19:28
Kiloshi mekilos 19:31
mekiloshi Kilos 19:31
Kiloshaha19:31
inetproalmost thought that my Huawei B960 packed up19:33
inetproshocking to see how expensive it would be to get a new router19:33
Kiloswhy what happened19:33
magespawnthe really sad thing is that the copper has been stolen19:33
Kiloslol19:33
inetproKilos: no I mean with the instability19:33
inetpromagespawn: oh I somehow almost got used to that19:34
Kiloswhen you run mtr what do you see19:34
Kiloswhere is it bad19:34
inetproKilos: terrible packet losses, as in 0% for 1 or 2 seconds and varying percentages of losses for 10 or more seconds19:35
Kiloseish19:35
Joe_knockWhat exactly can you do with stolen copper cables? Use it for wiring and stuff?19:35
Kilosthey sell the copper19:35
magespawnthis is sort of situation you could expect from the platteland, but in or near the cites?19:35
Kilosburn off the plastic cover19:35
Kiloscopper is like golds19:36
Kilosgold19:36
inetproJoe_knock: copper thieves are so desperate for the stuff they even steal the water meters with tiny bits of copper19:36
KilosJoe_knock: they even broke in here and stole all extension cords and welding cables etc19:36
Joe_knockThere must be a massive underground market for it 19:37
Kilosthey often show those they have caught19:38
Kilostruck loads full19:38
Kilosthey used to steal 3ks of power lines here nearly every month till they were changed to aluminium19:39
Joe_knockCould've made some money if somebody was manufacturing copper-equivalents19:41
Kiloslol19:45
inetprogood night19:59
Kilosnight inetpro sleep tight20:00
Kilosnight all. sleep tight20:20
