    Default Help in Getting a Line

    Hi guys

    I tried calling a number of ISPs today to check their coverage for Lalmatia, plans and rates. Unfortunately, none of them "worked out" due to very, very dodgy behaviour:

    ZipBD
    Couldn't find an online site, thus couldn't find a contact number, therefore couldn't even get in touch with them.

    IS Pros
    Saw on their site that they have some packages for home users. Got interested, so gave them a call. First person who answered the phone passed it over to another person, and that person said they don't provide services to home users. WTF? Then what's the deal with the packages on their site?

    They then said something about "distributors" and I'm guessing I'd have to scour around my locality to find one. Impossible task because I don't know anyone here, nor do I have the time to walk around the entire area looking out for another set of dodgy service providers.

    So does anyone have ideas for Lalmatia?

    Smile
    I got someone to surf the site for me as I can't read Bengali. It lacked information, and so after some google searches we landed upon their plans and rates. Things looked good here, good prices. Now I needed a contact number. We looked everywhere, nothing.

    Finally, after clicking on the sitemap we saw a "Contact" link. Alas, it was invalid! But luckily I know my way around the web so I managed to put together the broken link and fixed it, and then finally got some contact numbers.

    First one was the Lalmatia contact. 2 numbers, both cellphones, and best of all, both invalid. So we called the main headoffice. First person to answer said yes, they are Smile and they provide internet services. But told us to hold and the next person picked up the phone.

    Now get ready, for this is the best reply I've ever gotten after-the-fact, when the second person said:

    "Sorry, this is not Smile office."

    And then we hung up

    Now can anyone tell me, what is up with these ISPs? Are they like, drug smugglers? Or are they genuinely illegal ISPs?

    If someone has working contacts then you are my saviour!

    O they r ISPs. That is for sure. As 4 wht is up with them, u have to use ur imagination.

    > They simply don't care (service is never a strong-point in BD)
    > They r underpaid
    > They have a very diff strategy; they don't care abt market share
    > Theirs is a make-shift operation that was supported by the last govt regime; now under the new regime they cannot profit
    > They r actually scammers
    > They came in2 this business like most (without a clue thinking only abt money); then figured out business is a 'bit' different than they thought
    > Too busy with corporate clients and corporate thievery
    > Their boss is on vacation or on the run
    > Their boss who is on top of the conglomerate has forgotten them or has lost interest.

    OK bro, power. I'll call him tomorrow.

    Now, you're from Lalmatia as well. I should've asked the magic question: What line are you using?

    I read somewhere that Smile's Silver package is the same as Bronze, i.e it can be terrible. So I am having second thoughts, but that's technology. The last time I bought or subscribed to something tech-related, I had third and fourth thoughts, so in the end it's not really a big deal. I'm even contemplationg going corporate because I really need a duplex connection. Sheesh, kill me.
