Received the following SMS from TSTT yesterday:

Quote

Report vandalism and cable theft at 800-TIPS or 999.
$10,000 reward for info leading to the capture and conviction of criminals!
- A message from TSTT


I hope they don't steal the cable now to get the reward :ph34r:

Why do I get the feeling that TSTT is cutting their own cables?

I can't explain the astro visions and voices. But why do I feel this TSTT is encouraging cable theft?

Simple u see some people are making millions off cable theft, yet TSTT refuses to upgrade to fiber optics which by the way is cheaper and a million times faster and better.

But if you ask me this new DSL service will be pointless if bandits cut the cables.

Why dosen't TSTT then use fiber optics?

is there a conspiracy going on here?

I got that text message too. Now I would have definitely done my part to help out TSTT with that situation even when there was no reward attached. I just want everything to be working well, I don't care about no rewards etc. not that I would refuse any, lol. The thing is that they ain't say who going to rush down to the scene to catch the thieves. That is the part that worries me. Poor TSTT if they have to depend on the local police service cuz they won't have vehicles to come do anything. E999 will play a recording telling you to wait next 5 hours to report your emergency because all the operators are liming playing cards or something.

In fact to tell you how helpful I am, I reported a hanging main line in front my house 3 months ago to TSTT because it within the reach of thieves and guess what? The CSR jus brush that off like that was nothing serious. What more could I have done in that situation? I trying to prevent cable theft and the TSTT folks could care less. If I had a ladder I would have gone up the pole and duct tape the line where it supposed to be or fasten it somehow but knowing the police they would have come to arrest me for being a good citizen.

I think it is a good step forward and using the established 800-TIPS infrastructure might help the reporting willingness.

The fibre optic line serving my area was cut on Monday.

People realized that not saying anything about it hurt them more than anything else as the ATM machine stopped working,they weren't able to get e-cards,the public library's free Internet service went down and the local health centre couldn't go online...
