My Story with ADSL In Egypt – Part 3

After a long thought I decided to subscribe in the ADSL service in Egypt and here is my story!

Read First Part Here and Second Part Here.

Week 3:

We stopped at calling TE-data again!, well to keep the story short and you don’t be bored! They said that Telecom Egypt replied again that my line can’t have an ADSL service on it!!

And here comes my third vacation!
I went to the centeral and went Directly to the manager office. There was a Lady that asked me about what is my problem!? well … i told her, to cut things short; she called an Engineer and for a nice surprise he told her that my line really can’t have an ADSL services on it :S, so what the hell that other Telecom Egypt Employee told me?

Anyway she told him to remove the cause of the problem which was a ” Your Line has a filter on it, and it will be removed within 24 hours” 😥 what so we are searching for 3 weeks on a problem to be solved in 1 Day ( 🙂 Smile you are in Egypt!). Any way she gave me her phone number to call her to have a confirmation that my line is now Ok!

I called her and got the confirmation and called TE-Data to tell them, they told me that they will send a new request to Telecom Egypt.


Week 4:

I called TE-data again, they got the working order from Telecom Egypt (i.e. my line is now OK and can have an ADSL service on it!), and within a week the service will be up and running.

Right Now:

Waiting for a SMS to tell me that the service is alive…… Pray with me.

Next Part will be available when the service is running and then i will write a complete guide on how to order an ADSL Service in Egypt.

My Story with ADSL In Egypt – Part 2

After a long thought I decided to subscribe in the ADSL service in Egypt and here is my story!

Read First Part Here.

Week 2:

What he said? I think that what you want to know!
he said that my telephone line can’t have ADSL service because it “Shabaka Ardeya!!” Aka. Land Network and I must go to the Egypt Telecom to change the telephone line type to copper! what would I say except OK !!

And here comes the 2nd vacation day and I went the “Centeral” to the Network responsible guy and asked to change my line to copper, believe it or not my line is a copper line :O
I was shocked and went back home! and called my beloved TE-data and told them exactly what Telecom Egypt guy told me, the customer support person told me that I was wrong and asked the question in a wrong way so I went back to the centeral and asked them again do my line has the capability to add the ADSL service to it; and they said “Yes”

Back to home and calling TE-data, this time the person who talked to me is apparently an Engineer – he understands what is modulation and other telecommunication techniques – and we began to talk I told him all what happened before and he told me that he will write that the problem is solved and they will send the request again to Telecom Egypt and I must wait again 😥

at the end of the weekend I called TE-data again to know what is the status of my subscription, they told me that Telecom Egypt replies on TE-data’s requests from Tuesday to Thursday! no problem!

So I decided to call TE-data again at the beginning of the week to know the Status.

What TE-data said and what happened after that, Wait for Part 3 of the Story!

My Story with ADSL In Egypt – Part 1

After a long thought I decided to subscribe in the ADSL service in Egypt and here is my story!

Week 1:

First step I decided to take is to choose a good ISP company and i know that the biggest two companies in Egypt are TE-data and Link dot net
Well I chose TE-data although it is slightly cost more that Link dot net (for the 1Mbps Speed) don’t ask me why!! I just chose them.

I went to their web site and filled the online form (So Far So Good)

After 1 day someone from TE-data called me at home!! (although i provided my mobile phone number!!) off course i was not there!!
she told my mother that she will send me an email (Still Good) she made me fill an application and an agreement and made me fax it to her!!! why on earth would i do that?
Note: the same data i filled in the online form i filled it again in the paper work. (Still No Problem!)

After faxing the papers I called Her and asked what to do next!? she told me that I must go to pay the first month in advance although the same lady told me that the first payment they will come and collect it for free! that is another cool thing about Egypt they charge you money to collect from you money!!!

I gave my mother the money and told her to go and pay for me and Bang! there is no data about my application on the computer system. so why on Hell do they made me fill all these papers, anyway I talked to the man who refused to collect the money he told me that i must refill the application (What that woman made with my paper), so here comes my first vacation from work!! i went to him with all the needed papers and took the money and told me 10-15 days the service will be available (Good news So Far :S)

I went and purchased a nice wireless Linksys ADSL modem and installed it and the waiting began!

then on next Sunday TE-data called me for the first time, I was happy and i told myself that the service has been installed at last (even only 5 days elapsed!!)

But that was a mere dream 😥 what he said just wait for Part 2 of the story!
