All they ever gave us at today's meeting was a whole bag of "TRA needs some good people and we need some good approvals", "We can help you control what you view", "telecom industry in Bahrain is very complex, you don't
understand unless you're in Telecom world". "We spend about over a billion for our infrastructure in Bahrain and about 5 million over the past 3 years for community projects in Bahrain, now we can just put that 5 million into making it all unlimited packages but then we would not be socially responsible!" Over a billion on infrastructure and only 5 million for community projects over the past 3 years -- Cripes! who's doing your CSR initiatives? They got the math all wrong! Anyways, I don't subscribe to your TOS or FUP and I'm out... you claim to not sleep well Peter and you're sad at seeing customers go but when will the truth ever dawn upon you, when will you see the light? You're not thinking out of the box Peter! "Never do business with Batelco without reading their terms and conditions!" ... well in short Batelco may lead you up the gum tree but as many people pointed out tonight seems like there's going to be a legal battle our lovable ISP is gonna' get subjected to.
More than 250 people showed up today, the hall at the convention center was packed! Lot of legal action against Batelco seems to be in the fray by some consumers. Outsourcing their research and inaccurate stats.
Oh Batelco, you hit a hard one this time! Do the numbers of the bandwidth usage and go figure! And the solutions you came up with in trying to combat StealthNet where people share their connections was very poor in my opinion, this is a miscalculated remedy you're trying to implement! It's going to backfire and you're going to realize it all so late. Oh well so be it...
Goodbye Batelco, I'm pulling the plug on you in 4 days, countdowns have always been a nightmare for me but this one is pure fun! I'm definitely going to enjoy moving away from your spotty service, the fake picture you present to your customers and hey you really need to come to terms with your residential clients! Till then it's adios amigo!** tomorrow I'll blog a complete coverage on what happened at the meeting today, nothing special I assure you! Read Mahmood's blog posting and you'll know why ;)
