After 3 months, we finally have a fixed phone line into the house. Last time we lived here, we had no trouble getting a connection as there was already an existing line. Getting connected this time has been a major challenge. At some point in the last 3 years, the existing line had been compromised. Stu traced the problem to 3 telegraph poles up the hill behind our house where the line had broken under the weight of fallen bamboo and trees in the forest. We had to wait for Telecom Italia to clear the forest and string a new line. The technicians who did this work also installed a lightning rod to ensure that future storms don't compromise our communication. Now we can talk on our phone...but we are still waiting for internet via ADSL to be activated...
