Secret Good News From Etisalat

Ever since I got broadband installed in the house, my life has been blighted by a monthly trip to an Etisalat 'Business Centre' where I have had to stand in line for extended periods of time for the simple purpose of giving them money. Before I got broadband, I was able to pay for my various accounts using one of their clever cash payment machines. But while these machines could accept payment for dial-up accounts, broadband was a non-no.

So, imagine my surprise this afternoon: the barftuds had cut off my damn mobile, and I urgently needed to make some calls. I went to a cash payment machine, and lo! It now accepts payment for broadband! Maybe this has just happened. Or maybe it happened a year ago. I don't know, they never bothered to tell me.

Maybe Etisalat is beggining to feel the heat of Du's imminent arrival and finally decided to do something about their service :)

I've always found it very bizarre that the one Etisalat service you couldn't pay online was a broadband connection. This crowd couldn't organise a bunfight in a bakery.
