Well, we have had negligible service with Homebox for over two weeks. If the Mtel service peoples’ theory is correct and it is the box itself that is the problem, we have been waiting all that time to get a replacement delivered to our local store. Still, we would be stuck with GPRS as 3G is virtually impossible in this area.
Kamchia came this morning to provide us with a 5mbps service and it works great (a 5.5MB Praktiker flyer downloaded in approx. 10 seconds and 58MB of MS updates in under two minutes confirms the speed). We have direct sight to an antenna at Ravna, which probably helps.
It is so nice to have websites appear almost immediately, like we had up until almost four years ago, in the UK.
Mtel can have their Homebox back and lets hope there is no problem (the contract finished seven months ago).
Btw, the installer for Kamchia denies that they have any relationship with Spectrum.
Price is 240 leva per year or 30 leva install Plus 30 leva per month.
