Trials and tribulations

Ok, managed to get my passport back from immigration.  It only took about an hour with some long forms to complete with details of my schooling since I was four etc.  This is part of the process and hence why I cant complain.  Got my stamp on my passport which now makes me a resident of the BVI which should mean I don't have to stand in-line behind all the tourists at the airport or port when I get back in!
Have had my ups and downs with the telecoms providers.  Signed up of the wireless data card for use on the laptop.  At $99 per month plus $250 for the card it is a bit on the steep side so you would expect at least 512Kb connection... no way.  Most I am getting is 200Kbs on download and close to zero on the upload.  Fortunately I managed to get this on a 15 day trial so I should be able to take it back once I get my landline sorted out.
The landline is another thing.  Went to Cable and Wireless to apply for a landline and ADSL at the flat.  Looks like the process takes up to 15 days! We shall have to wait and see what happens.
