Internet and phone problems continue

on November 7, 2013

We live in an area of the southwest of Western Australia where (it would seem to me) all of the telephone wiring has rotted, the internet is intermittent and keeps dying, mobile phones don’t work unless you race outside to get a signal, despite paying a fortune for a new antenna, a new modem – oh don’t get me started!

The internet has suddenly, inexplicably, come to life again after four hours of absence when I was attempting to send messages to family and friends, reply to/comment on blog comments, write a new post etc.

Living on a road called Paradise Road definitely has its drawbacks. I will get the above problems fixed asap (maybe 2020!) So frustrating when I am trying to keep in touch with loved ones – argh – oh well at least there is the phone. Whoops – forgot that doesn’t work properly either.

Until these things are fixed this is my last post for time being – too hard!

  1. I’ll be thinking of you, stupid technology. 😦

    Yep, it’s awesome when it works, but SOOOOOO frustrating when it don’t. 🙂 Could just be the satellite passing through cosmic TSA LOL 🙂

  3. I didn’t know!
    I hope all of this gets resolved!

  4. We get fed up if our internet drops out for an hour, so it must be very hard for you. I sympathise with your phone problem, though – the signal for my mobile phone is dreadful in the house, and if someone manages to get through on it, as soon as I answer it cuts out. Grrrrr.

  5. Ov, not again. I guess living on Paradise is inconsistent with modern technology. Take care.

  6. Aa-ah! the drawbacks of living in paradise 🙂

    How frustrating for you, Julie.
    So much for modern technology and communications network.

    Paradise? A road with a sense of irony.

  9. That sucks – and not like a vacuum!

  10. I’ve had a share in too many computer issues the past while so I ‘feel’ for you Julie…. Diane

    We are having the same problems here too. Huntsville prides itself in cutting edge rocket science, and yet, they can’t keep the internet running or give us good phone signal if you are further than 20 miles out of the city!!! Yup, I’m with Dianna, it sucks.

    And yet, we should count our blessings, because we could have it as bad as Lisa (Z) down at the Playamart!

  12. So sorry you’re still having all these problems. I know how frustrating it can be. When we lived in the boonies we would lose our internet every time it rained. Lucky for us, it doesn’t rain much in So Cal. I hope things improve (permanently) soon.

    Hoping your technology will soon be working again, Julie. You’ll just have to settle down with a good book. Have a great weekend. 🙂

  14. Paradise road is obviously lower case p! Sounds like you need a sattelite dish.

    I know how you feel. On the Isle of Arran the power and phone lines used to blow down in gales but we got used to it. TV reception was also terrible. Most people have satellite dishes now for the internet and TV.

    Have you not thought of a satellite dish as a solution to your problems?

    Too hard indeed, Julie. This would drive me NUTS. I really wish it could be sorted for you. I mean, it’s such a basic part of our lives, and a daily part.

    Just NUTS…

    You make me realize how much I take for granted. And I’m grateful I can do that:)
