Faith-T is hopping mad that she could not hub on her Starhub mobile phone for more than two hours this morning. Luckily she not bookie, or she would lose mucho business. But then real bookies have more than one phone line.
See lah, live in Punggol, land of semi-cable-wired flats, semi-opened LRT lines, and semi-working cellular networks. Sauron would never allow his Mordor to lose handphone coverage.
According to a customer service liason, at around 8 plus this morning, Starhub’s mobile network in the North-East part of Singapore was down. Seems like they managed to fix it by 10.30am.
But during that time, I couldn’t receive or make calls, and sending an sms required multiple tries before success. Which was very frustrating because I may not be in the business of making money. I’m not a broker. I’m not a financier. I won’t lose “big business” if I don’t have access to my cell phone. But … well, let’s put it this way, I am a youth worker and this morning of all mornings was a very bad time for such a glitch.
