Thread: Singnet Sucks!

  1. #1

    Angry Singnet Sucks!

    I was on Pacnet for years without a hitch. My wife was on Singnet. After we got married, we moved into the same house. Initially, I moved my Pacnet line over and used it for more than a year. Then, I realised that my wife was still maintaining her Singnet line at her parents home. No point paying for 2 lines right? So, I decided to terminate my Pacnet and move her Singnet over... because the wife insists that she wants to keep her email account.

    After my Pacnet line was cut, I applied for the Singnet ADSL line to be installed. They told me that it would be up on 5th Feb. But 5th has gone and 6th is here... and guess what... No ADSL signal! I called their helpline and the operator insists that the ADSL is installed. I told them that there is no signal. I tested with 2 modems from 2 locations in my house, using 2 different PCs... and no signal! But they refused to take my word for it. The operator said that they must arrange for the linesman to do a check, and he's available only from the 13th onwards. Since I am working, the earliest weekend is on the 17th.

    THE IDIOTS REFUSE TO CHECK THE SERVER ON THEIR SIDE! THEY INSIST THAT THE PROBLEM LIES ON MY SIDE! They said that they will check their server only after the linesman comes. So... that will be the 17th. Useless bunch of incompetent idiots!

    What do you expect. You should not have let your wife's insistance of maintaing an email account and sway you to switch.

    My problem, well, I have signals and over the past 3 1/2 years I lived at my place, I always have signal, with the exception of during heavy storms. And I live near the CBD, not some outlying neighborhood. How?

    I agree. Call again, and if they give you the same BS, ask to talk to a supervisor.

    Could have just downgraded the Singnet acct to the cheapest possible, just to keep the email_addr@singnet.com.sg address, and use Pacnet/othernet for actual connectivity... is what I'm doing with my Starhub

    I find their customer service very bad. Recently i went to hello shop to apply for MIO plan for my new house . Prior to tat, I called MIO customer service hotline to check whether if i can retain my existing User ID and they said YES at no cost at all.

    At hello shop i was quoted $40 to retain user ID and $30 if i choose to retain user ID together wif existing phone number. In the end, didnt sign up.

    I called up MIO customer service again and they reconfirm I can retain my user ID at no cost at all.

    Will go down hello shop again and scold them when i free

    Yes, it's my decision. Yes, it's a stupid decision, and I admit that it's a mistake. But you mean that if you decide to buy something, and it's bad... then you just sulk? Of course complain lah!

    What do you mean I have not started using their service? Line relocation is a service. Provision of the ADSL link is a service. In fact, it's a paid service. They charge $40 for that. All I want is a signal. Is that too much to ask?

    If you were to order something online... but they did not deliver it to your house... but they claim that they have and will only check for you 2 weeks later. How would you feel?

    That's what I thought initially... but that's not the practice now. The guy at the Hello shop told me that they maintain separate servers now. So, 1 must stop completely before the other can connect.

    Though I agree with you, I don't know any way to solve your problem.

    Yes. Relocation fee was $40. Transfer of user ID to my name was $10. I don't mind paying these up front fees... just give me my signal!
