It wasn’t connect internet during one month in Oodi college. Because it was difficult for me, I decided to ask for help to senior personnel.

Private hospital in Oodi. Though it is practice time, a doctor has not yet come. We waited 30-40 minutes, but the doctor did not come. So we went to another hospital.

When I was going to pay water charges, it was also the opinion that there is no need to go if it does not got the specification. Last time water supply personal came for the meter check, he went away to say that you have to pay every month. I will say that give me the specification at when I meet them next time.

Botswana Telecommunications Corporations (BTC)

I checked the status several times on the phone to the BTC with the help of a friend. At a later date, I received a report from the person in charge to pay deposit fee because of the documents was OK. I went to the BTC, and paid.

Because it does not lead to the Internet even after a month, I canceled the application of the Internet. It seems to have the permission of the manager to get a refund $30 of the deposit. They make me write a letter. Arrogant attitude can be felt from the character. It passed two months, but the refund is not.

After the deposit payment, they did not contact the construction work even after two weeks. When I check with other Japanese, the reputation of the BTC was very bad. Because I was recommended a company called Orange, after the cancell the BTC, I decided to sign up for the company.
