Ohmygod, the guys/gals at Brasil Telecom are hopeless idiots who deserve to burn in hell for the eternity. They delayed the deployment of the Cisco ADSL routers (overpriced, but the only alternative to the 3Com PCI cards) for one more month, with no apparent reason. My ADSL line is enabled and they already have the routers, they just want to make sure they'll piss everyone off, users and ISPs.
There's only one company authorized to install the ANTs. You're not allowed to install the equipment yourself, because you're a stupid luser and may damage the delicate equipment. I can bet my right arm that when they finally deploy the Ciscos the geniuses at the installation company will set the router to operate in bridge only mode, or better yet, they'll have it already configured to operate as a bridge, put it on your desk, plug it in the wall, say how stupid you are, collect the money and that's all folks. No way. I'll want them to set up IPv6, exotic NAT configurations, virtual WANs and will bug them with I stupid questions to death.
I should have the right to install my own equipment. I'm already paying too much for it, and I hate when they delay the deployment just because they don't know how to install and operate it. Timmy would learn how to do it in a few minutes reading the manual (available on-line from Cisco). Blah.
