Groupthink only works when at least one is thinking
So, today, I got my 'high-speed' internet service turned on. It's supposed to be double the last speed (6m).
It was failing from the moment it was turned on, so I called repair as soon as I got free.
The girl on repair asked if I was sure I had the filter on the DSL line.
What she meant (I hope) was whether it was on the PHONE line, of course.
The situation degraded rapidly after this action, so she was going to have to send a repair person.
Later, I realized the error, took the filter off and put it on the phone instead. I called them back to discuss that aspect of the error detection phase, and I asked them how far I was from the office.
I'm seven thousand odd feet away.
6m only goes to five thousand feet.
I suppose that answers that just fine, no?
I'm calling tomorrow to downgrade my service.
