The cable police are coming

For two days in a row, technicians from Sky and Home cable (both subsidiaries of Benpres Holdings) have been doing their rounds in our village in Diliman, Quezon City, making audits on the residential connections. They say they’re doing this in line with the Quezon City Government’s crackdown on illegal connections. I’m pretty sure they’re doing this in other areas also.

So make sure you have your receipts or billing statements ready. My line actually got disconnected as the folks at home were initially unable to produce a copy of the statement because these were all at the office. But the line was re-connected (with profuse apologies from Sky’s engineering personnel present) when I called to have their people verify my account details with the main office.

  • by the way, i see that your website is very well decorated with Google Adsense. I have a very good suggestion, blog about “home remodeling loan” and “interest only mortgage” or any permutations of the words “home, loan, mortgage and remodeling”. Hehehe.

    Believe me, the rate is just simply …. fill in the ________.

    Goodluck to your team!

  • Stealing in whatever form is a crime. Stealing cable signal not only disrupts the reception of legal subscribers, it also promotes others to do the same, destroying the system in the process making many people very very angry. But there is hope! Representatives are working hard to make cable tv viewing a lot easier for subscribers. Please refer to this link for more information.
