      well, probably 10-20%(maybe less) of calls to bb tech are speed issues, and yes pretty much all of them require setup adjustments which is fine, takes a few minutes. the problem then is running round for 10 minutes trying to get a line reconfigured by somebody whows less about line stats/config than you do. alot of the other 80-90% of calls would be easier with penfold as bb tech always gets calls whereby broadband has been ceased or is awaiting provision or there has been a delay etc.
      Sounds like the place sure will be worse off without you misfit. It's people like you who get things done these days. Half of the staff in many places today are only there to do as little as possible for a quick paycheck, which as well as being a shame is pathetic too. I was in the same situation as a motor technician for Nissan many years ago.. There were a few guys in the workshop who were top mechanics & worth tens times what they were being paid, and not just because they could repair almost anything, more because they had morals and their customers actually meant something to them. Whilst on the other hand some of the fellas were absolutely useless, couldn't diagnose or repair something that wasn't even broken! Yet even though they'd passed exams and got certificates they were crap at their job and had no people skills at all.
      It's a real shame when certain hard workers (like us) are suppressed & have to suffer because of idiots who couldn't give a toss!

      Anyway rant over All the best to ya misfit and I hope that wherever you end up, your appreciated and not restricted by idiots & bureaucracy
