So there is a reason for my hiatus and no internet access since Wednesday.
About a month ago I changed internet providers, but then for some reason I decided not to pay my bill so I was cut off on Wednesday.
Oh wait. No I didn’t.
I did not change providers. I’ve had no contact with any provider other than mine. I didn’t even find out my provider had changed until after three days of no internet and about five phone calls to different companies involving my modem and internet connection.
So…why did I suddenly have a different provider I didn’t even know about? Apparently providers can just call another provider, lie to them that their client has ‘changed providers’, and convince said provider to cancel their own clients account, all without authorisation, permission, a single word or even contact at all from said client. And the client doesn’t even have to know about it!
If this is legal, I will just kill myself. I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.
Stay well clear of providers who do disgusting things like this.
