You can use phone in full!

As many of you probably know, I am a scary customer...If something doesn't the work the way it should, I will send an email complaining and ask for a statement and fixing of the issue.

Those of you who also call to abroad now and then sure know that sometimes, the connection is not very good and it's required to dial again or that suddenly the phone call is terminated.

However, when I was calling to Russia to a mobile phone, the connection got terminated every 6 minutes!!! I thought this was an inacceptable situation and so I asked the mobile phone provider MegaFon Moscow for information.
I also told them that, according to some Russian friends, it's known that the network of MegaFon Moscow is weak and crap.

They replied to my email with a big response, which is the most detailed and biggest responce I have ever gotten from a customer service abroad.

They promised me, that they are currently expanding their mobile phone network and that I soon (quote) can use phone in full!


Here is their reply, a 100% copy and paste from my email inbox!:

"Dear Mr Joerg Droege!

Inform You that according to technical service, now in Moscow and the Moscow area, spend large-scale works on improvement of quality of signal reception and throughput. Breakages of communication, deterioration of a covering are temporarily possible, network can be locally strongly overloaded. Works are caused by the big inflow of subscribers.

Let's hope that they will keep their promise! :) Wish me luck!

Some people said, it's probably a draft email, but I doubt that. Why would a draft email contain spelling and grammar errors?!

I was going to say it might have been one of those automated e-mails (you know,those default ones companies send out according to whatever complaint the customer has),but maybe an actual human being in front of a computer who knows what he/she is doing typed it out.That's pretty rare.
Well,I hope everything works out!
