Another Indonesian WTF Moment
PT. Telkom and PT Indosat are the two main portals to the WWW (and I don't mean the wrestling organisation) in Indonesia. The majority of ISPs in this country rent bandwidth from these two monopolies.
I've had an Indosat account since I first signed up for access to the WWW and I know they're crap ~ this screen grab is a not unusual situation, as loads of folk will testify.
But you've really got to pity the poor folk who subscribe to PT Telkom and maybe depend on internet access for business or, indeed, urgent family reasons, because this is the message they get when they can't access their webmail
Note the date.
telkom.net expired on 09/18/2008 and is pending renewal or deletion.According to Bloomberg
, Telkom posted 2007 profit of 12.8 trillion rupiah ($1.4 billion), up 16 percent from a year earlier as it added new users.
Now, of course, they're going to lose users. They have been warned:If you are the current registrant for this domain name and wish to continue the registration on the domain, you must immediately contact the domain name provider and renew the domain name to ensure the name is not deleted.
Yesterday's picture says it all really.
