Default Etisalat/Du

Been here for some 6 or so weeks now. I don't understand, i have to go across the road, down the street, turn left then right before I can get any internet access?

And that's the nearest internet cafe?

What's wrong with this country?

Near Mankhool.

The speed is disgusting, and that may be why the internet places make so much $$$..

I wonder are they owned by Eti/Du?

Mdm M, All my neighbours can get it, the latest excuse from Eti is that there's no room in the "box".

Whatever that is!

So I ring the provider (Etisalat) and try to explain to the answer that her box is too tight.

I'll be deported in seconds.

1, MM - do you stay in a one house village in rural northumberland? Internet cafes every corner you turn in most UK cities.

2, Internet access is nothing short of shocking here, its bad enough that you pay Dh190 for a crappy 512k connection but it usually clocks in at around 350k anyway.

3, etisalat are shite, but sadly du are even shiter.
