Blame it on the rain!

Blame it on the rain! (FP)

THE RECENT INCLEMENT WEATHER is to blame for some of the problems facing LIME customers.

In a Press release, corporate communications officer Simone Codrington said it was normal for there to be increased problems during the rainy season.

“During the rainy season it is customary for us to receive an escalation of fault reports on our fixed line services for a number of reasons, some of which are weather-related.

“For example, with an extensive aerial network like ours, any moisture on the line or on the internal devices could lead to the degradation of our customer’s landline service, and in some cases that could also have an impact on the customer’s Internet service.”  (CA)

Whenever there are persistent technical problems, utility and telecom companies have a way of blaming it on the defenseless.

Sometimes ago when there was a spate of power outages, the BL&P blamed it on a highly qualified green monkey for tripping the electrical circuit.

Now LIME has found the recent rains to be a great excuse for their failures to fix long-standing telephone faults. Not so long ago it was copper thieves, and a deep sea creature that bit the underwater cables.

I would advise LIME and BL&P to stop picking on the Lord's annointed and get on with the task of addressing customers' concerns.

That's a very poor excuse. It rains in London and other places in the world just as often as it does here or more. They don't have the problems we have here.

LIME needs to spend some of the big profits they make and invest cleaning up and repairing the aging cable network. As I understand it the copper cable network has a life span of 10 years maximum. I am sure LIME have cable plant in the field much longer than that. Hence the reason why there is so many phone line problems when the rain falls here.
