Internet was restored at 1pm Monday. 3pm Tuesday an sms arrives informing me that the net is once again working. Ta Telstra. I had actually noticed. Was there a point to it?
But dear Telstra also sent an email asking for feedback on my recent interaction with their tech support. They really are quite a masochistic organisation aren't they. (Note, I said not a word against their very pleasant and trying to be helpful people at the end of the phone line, all four of them)
