To my surprise, turned out that there are a number of signals floating in the air. Some of them with decent signal strength; I think most are coming from that villa compound down the road. Occupants over there all look like rich bastards, I don't think any of them mind borrowing some bandwidth..
God damn it! Just got disconnected. i will complete this post offline.
Anyhooooo … As you might have already guessed; No Internet, no phones, and yup .. no DEWA - which means we still do not have ACs. It almost mid March, and we are still living off tiny power generators.
I've met a number of neighbors and none of them is happy to say the least.
We were thinking of signing a piece of people saying stuff like "We request and we demand...etc", but I don't really think that’ll make any difference.
Some thought of pressuring the landlord to acquire bigger generators to power up those AC units. It is still bearable at night, but during the day its like a friggen sauna.
Yours truly -typically thinking with the most scandalous agenda on mind- thought we should go to the press. Because paying an annual six digit figure for an average 2 bedroom apartment and NOT having utility services like, ummm.. Air Conditioning; could make a decent headline.
Especially when you are living a few meters away from the region's Technology Hub.
One guy thought of going to see the Rent Committee people in Dubai Municipality ... everyone laughed at that one!
I don't know guys.. What do you think we should do?
