In Topic: Looking for new modem (possibly HFC)

My young bloke who is into computers has studied the modems and Netgear came up trumps.

 He raves about his, but no good if you want a landline home phone as well as I found it no go. 

But most have mobile these days, except some oldies like me have both.Brilliant wifi though.

If you have Steam or Origin it will install if you have the rego numbers for activation,no cost to join either.

Just a thought.

Speaking of Origin they are a public company, they took over Country Energies retail business.Country Energy is a Govt owned company, they are all a pack of c____ts these power company retailers.

AGL accepted the TOU when I had it installed and so did Origin,but not happy little chappies either of them

The only other discount I got was 15% for direct debit.

Well I am sorry the way I fired up,mainly I was trying to explain the way they have put the prices up 

by stealth.

The TOU metering as I tried to explain is the way to go,they are going to say its unavailable but threaten 

them and see how you go.I am very slow on these bloody things and what pissed me off most was the trouble

I went to explain the best I could and how long it took me.I certainly did not google it mia culpa

It is all fact from my position of face to face on the job customer high consumption electricity accounts,SERVICE

MARKER,LEADING HAND AND THEN MANAGER.SORRY ABOUT THAT.BEEN RETIRED FOR 9 YEARS.

I worked as an electrician at SRCC.THOSE WERE THE INCREMENTS OF HOW THE INCREASES BECAME INTO

BEING ON YOUR POWER BILL. SRCC It then became ENERGY SOUTH,then GREAT SOUTHERN ENERGY then COUNTRY

ENERGY then now ESSENTIAL ENERGY.ALL I DID WAS TRY TO SHOW HOW AND WHY ELECTRICITY IS

SO FUCKING DEAR NOW.THAT IS HOW THEY HAVE GOT YOU BY THE BALLS NOW. SORRY IF IT WAS NO

FUCKING USE YOU UNGRATEFUL PRICK.NOW I HAVE SOLAR AS WELL IF YOU WANT TO PAY $25000 AND MY BILL IS $90

I would have to sit down next to you to explain it all.Maybe I did not write it very well as I am not real smart.


And I thought you were crying about the price of electricity?
