We have been with out the internet and home phone since moving in. We are having to use our mobile phones to access the net. In their wisdom, the people who built the house dug a trench and ran the power but didn't think about phone cables. Our drive is 80 metres long of hard gravel! It took a few days to arrange a man with a trench digger. When he eventually turned up, one hour into the work and his machine broke down! It has sat here for 4 days!
At last he came back, fixed the machine and proceeded to finish digging the trench. But, yet another hiccup. He couldn't find the main Telstra line to tap into. The top of our drive looks like animals are burrowing where he has dug holes to try to find the lead line. Yet again work comes to a halt. Two more days before the Telstra man comes to try to sort it out.
