Well efforts are being made to refurbish our lines and make them up to date.
Just a few days ago NITEL the principal actor in the telecomm sector
announced the appointment of regional managers. The recent reduction of the
initial deposit for telephone lines is also directed towards this end. I
have also learnt from a staff of NITEL that some PSTN sub-stations are being
established across the country. Hopefully things will begin to work.
I urge genuine members of this forum not to bother with those who will
continue to flame me in the next couple of weeks. They will be angry as
spooks are wont to be when their intrigues are discovered. The simple reason
is that their work is made harder for them!
