I was in the middle of my work, which I was suppose to send across to my client by 3pm...the internet connection was fine since morning, and just when I was about to send it the internet service got affected. I had to call the service technician, due to lunch hour those guys delayed by one hour, and then finally checked the line...on the terrace, due to heat, the cable clip got loosened as a result the supply snapped. Anyway its up and running, I called up my client and informed about this snag

no its not tat easy to spot, as there's a connector hub on the terrace...which has around 100 jacks plugged into it...only the technician can get it right, else I'll be fiddling with somebody else's cable

@HAPPSINGH It has been a boring day for me so far.A quarrel between a couple of my colleagues spoiled the atmosphere at office.

That's sad, even we also have such problems at times. Its good that you found out the fault, but often such faults aren't found and it gets even more delayed. By the way, Which company net are you using?

This would be very frustrating and the client could easily be displeased too.

At least you were able to get it fixed, which is good news. Hopefully it doesn't happen again anytime soon.

It used to happen when I had MTNL connection that's the reason I had to disconnect it and got some local service provider which is better than the previous one.
