Rant after a long time...
A week or two ago, I posted how my ISP is fucking up the net neutrality law by fast laning Google/Facebook while rest of the internet struggles for me.
I did the speed test multiple times and confronted them. This time I was really pissed and the support guy tried to fool me by saying that there's some download going on which is affecting the speed. I said that should not occur at all no matter the download. And there was no download going on in background.
He asked to share my screen via anydesk and I did. We tested the speed.
Now the son of a bitch says that my laptop is crappy and I need to get a new laptop in order to use their service or else I will struggle with speed.
I finally lost my patience. I was literally shivering and ripped his ass off for fooling me.
Motherfucker did not stop there. He now asks me how many devices are connected to the router, and I say 4.
He blames the router for not being able to bear the load.
I told him that if he doesn't stop fooling me I would literally grab his throat and punch the shit out of him.
To which he says, he will send an 'engineer' too check the issue as it is probably with local hardware and nothing from their end.
The so called stupid engineer arrives. Grabs the lan cable, clips off the connector, fits in a new one and asks me to test it.
DO I FUCKING LOOK LIKE A DICK SUCKING DONKEY?
HOW THE FUCK IS THAT GOING TO SOLVE THE SPEED ISSUE WHICH IS EVIDENTLY FROM THEIR END?
Anyways, he has done it multiple times and I know their trick. They throttle the speed for an hour or two for customer to calm down.
Shit works but this time I am gonna chop his dick off for sure.
Internet starts lagging again. I call him up and experiment in front of him that Facebook clearly works faster than Reddit.
I show this to his engineer as well. We speed test and the results fail.
I am not even getting the speed I paid for, let alone using Google/Facebook on fast lane.
I ask him the reason and why they are doing this. This is fraud and clearly illegal.
I said, that I will register a police complaint to which he says they have 'special certificate' and are allowed to do this.
I THINK THESE ASSHOLES CONSIDER THEIR CUSTOMERS AS MINDLESS PIGS.
I ask him to produce the certificate to which he says that he has the privacy right to not show it.
FUCK YOU MOTHERFUCKER.
I posted this on Reddit seeking help.
I registered a consumer forum complaint.
I tweeted the net neutrality organisation of India seeking help.
I contacted IT ministry of India seeking help.
Looking forward to sending them a written legal notice and contacting few more authorities to teach this bastard some lesson.
If any of you can help in anyway to fuck this assholes, do let me know.
Let's DDoS them, if that's possible. 🤣🤣74
Just wow. I am amazed by what just happened.
A year ago my parents decided to switch from desktop to laptop for convenience. Knowing their needs, i bought them one without an OS and installed Ubuntu 16.04 on it. The thing is that if you do a regular maintenance of the laptop once a year at their partner company, you get additional 4 years of warranty (this offer is amazing).
So today was the day I brought the laptop for this maintenance for the first time. They make you a profile on their support website where you can track shit regarding your device, super convenient. First thing I notice that the login page was not https. Awkward, but there is no sensitive data here so i let it pass. Naturally i forgot my password, so I requested a new one and guess what? I recieved it in plaintext via mail. A tech repair oriented company does this, my god.
I went there, gave them the laptop in question and got a piece of paper, where they wrote that the laptop is in their hands now, and the current physical state of the laptop, and blabla.
I got home and I read what the guy wrote among other things: THE OPERATING SYSTEM IS NOT LEGAL.
How the fuck is Ubuntu not legal??? What the fuck is this shit? I sure as hell didn't torrent it or bought a booteged copy on the streets.12
I am from Germany.
And I wanna make a (new) website.
This is fucking exhausting 😩
(Do I have to translate it to english as well? The site will be bilingual).
I miss the time when I was a careless teenage who would just code and not care about bureaucracy...7
