lucky, I have backup connection

Unlike our very smart friend Don who lives in picturesque Quincy near beautiful Boston with extremely cheap and reliable internet connection almost everywhere, the internet connection is not reliable here.

Yesterday, my internet connection has been on and off all day. BigPond Cable has gone funny. Today, the connection was unusually slow. I called BigPond's technician, I was told that the issue will be fixed by 3pm (today).

This evening, the entire connection got dropped. Actually, I was connected, but I was not assigned with an IP address. In other words, I can connect to Telstra's network, but I couldn't access internet at all.

The technician was unable to fix my connection from his end. The situation has been escalated to “Level 2” (whatever it means). They said that I should have my normal cable connection by tonight or tomorrow. Let's hope so.

In the meantime, I am connected with my back up internet connection. It's the 3G connection with Telstra Elite Pre-Paid Mobile Wi-Fi. Without a doubt, this 3G connection is nowhere as fast as BigPond Cable. It is better than nothing.
