I have Magma as my DSL internet provider.
I have Rogers as my home phone provider.
I want the two to play nice together.
I call Magma, they say I need a circuit number.
I call Rogers, they say they don’t provider circuit numbers. But I should request a “dry loop dsl connection” from Magma.
I tell Magma this, they say “What? Try again.”
I call Rogers, apparently they have two home phone services, digital and analogue. I have the digital, therefore, no circuit number.
I call Magma, tell them this, they say they don’t support Rogers digital service then.
I call Rogers, get them to change the account to analogue(because I really care about this sort of thing) and that will happen Friday.
So, in general, one more week without internet.
Two failings(possibly my own, I never rule that out):
1. Magma doesn’t mention the fact they don’t support a Digital Rogers
2. Rogers doesn’t mention that they have an analogue account
Gonna go back to tin cans and string.
