Is anybody with Chunghwa’s ADSL service successfully using an Internet phone service (like the ones you can dial through MS Messenger and IPhoneHere or stuff like that) or Netmeeting to contact people overseas (particularly in the States)?
Chunghwa don’t seem to be able to give me a straight answer. Today they claim that these services don’t work on ADSL. Doesn’t seem likely but I can’t deny it outright either. (It does make me wonder what the engineer who spent 3.5 hours in my house in March was playing at, if none of the programs he was trying over and over were expected to work with ADSL in the first place…!)
Anyway, after getting the run-around from them (“there’s no problem here”, “Well, there is a problem but we can’t find it”, “We’ll have somebody out Saturday morning”, “Oh, sorry, the engineer had ‘shiqing’ on Saturday morning so didn’t show up”, “Oh, after a week your file is erased” etc. etc.) I went across the road to Taiwan Fixed Network and am now hoping that they provide service in my area. They offer ADSL, by the way…I’ll keep you posted on how it goes.
