INTERNET CONNECTION THROUGH THE CAT FLAP

Some of you may remember the rather strange temporary internet connection which our provider had installed in November (post here) and which had been finally repaired on February 2, three months later !

A reporter of the Belgian TV had seen on Facebook my description of this rather crazy connection which crossed the street and led through our cat flap into the basement !  They made a movie out of it for a consumer program which is broadcasted each evening.

I tried to make some photos from the film, but they are not very good



here I show the cable which lied for 3 months across the street, cars driving over it.



and ended through the cat flap. We also had had to dig a hole for nothing in our garden because the company was wrong in their measures, the connection point was in the street and not on our ground.



At the end the manager of the internet provider came to check the work and discussed with Mr. G. He granted us "generously" 130 Euros, which doesn't even cover the costs to tidy up the garden. But as usual these companies have such small printed clauses that nobody reads them.




and here is the broadcasting of our adventure from the Belgian Television.

Origami, of a sort. Towel-Igami, maybe? Lovely.

I Love the shapes you always get on your bed in Egypt. I'll check the video of my famous friend on television when I'm at home and on a better internet connection!

How lovely to have the towels done for you on your holiday. Still smiling about the carry on with your internet connection, you are now a film star.

Fun to see you in action and to hear your voice even though I need an interpreter. You make a great TV star ... I hope it helps in some way.

I think you certainly got your point across. I loved the sped up footage of the cable in the street. They seem to have made quite a mess.

Tamago said...

Wow thank you for sharing the video! This is so cool! Even though I don’t understand the language, it was really nice to see you move and talk :-)

Wendy said...

So now I can claim to know a TV star even if I couldn't understand a word lol. Loved the speeded up part.

So now you are a famous TV star. When is your next show coming? But really the whole story should not have had to go this far. Cords trailing across the street for so long is insane.
I hope you took lessons in towel folding while you were in Egypt but maybe those shapes would scare the cats too much.

Well at least you no longer have cars driving over your internet connection. It's such a bother when service providers don't do their job properly.
