Internet Connection

Post by chronoel » Fri, 15 Mar 2013 11:08 am

Hi,

We're facing a challenge in dealing with our landlord.

We're going to install internet to our rented place but the landlord doesn't want us to..

Originally, they said they will install the internet but they did not.

So it ended up, the agent telling us to cover the installation instead..

What should we do? :(

heh? thats being silly if you ask me, i think you should try to talk to your landlord about it and if he doesn't agree threaten your agent about giving you compensation for wasting your time and effort into this.

You oughta report your agent for misrepresenting a LOT of things--cooking, internet. Worse thing is, you won't get any more service from him now that you've signed the papers.

Do you have cable TV? If yes, what's to install?

It's very possible the LL only knows about Fibre Optics & OpenNet Installation costs (as that is what is getting all the press - they probably think that ordinary cable is just for the TV).
