This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.
The new apartment has an existing Digi cable and I knew I could pick up unlimited access at 2Mbps for $12pcm so I wandered into the Digi office on Sunday and signed up. Although there's a live modem already on the wall the connection would take "three to five working days" and I politely asked if this meant two weeks. A couple of internal phone calls led to, "Okay, we be there this Wednesday, our man call day before to make time." At 3.30pm today I whinged to Mrs Stroppy that Cambodge telcos are just like Telstra and that I bet we wouldn't be hearing from Digi this week. Five minutes later the Digi tech called to arrange a time for tomorrow. I know there's a lot of negative comment out there about Digi's tech support, but so far I'm impressed. I haven't had (domestic) cable Internet before and I talked Digi into an unthrottled connection, so I'm looking forward to seeing how much better it is than Cellcard's Edge (as in allEDGEdly 3G) connection. If you read this far, you really need a hobby.
