    Landline + faster internet basics.


    Coming here back in July 2019 it was only supposed to be for a year. Now Europe is going downhill fast it looks like I may well be here for a while.

    First off I live in a village house. I know there are ISP here because of all the routers I can see when I turn on WIFI.

    Second Ive been reliant on CSL sim cards for both calls and data ($150 for 20gb isnt bad). And do everything phone. This means I dont watch videos online and because the university I work at has gone online for teaching I have to go in and use their facilities. Its not so bad with empty buses and MTR but I can see the $400 a week travel cost being put to internet bills instead.

    So essentially how do I get a phone line or just an internet line installed? The cabinet for phone/internet is 5 metres away.

    Im pretty sure its a monopoly for isps so dont need advice on that.

    Probably start with this. I think it's Netvigator that usually runs out to village locations, someone else with better knowledge can pipe up otherwise. Or just call PCCW.

    Most villages should have PCCW.

    Once you have your landline, you can try combining it with your CSL connection for faster internet:
