How bad is Convergence Communications Guatemala
SUNRISE,, FLORIDA -- There’s an old Rodney Dangerfield joke, in which he’s explaining he used to know an ugly woman.
A sidekick in the audience shouts to him, “How ugly, Rodney?”
Rodney would answer, “She was known as a two bagger. You’d put another paper bag over her head, just in case the first one broke!”
In my case, my beef is with the cable-TV firm that’s supposed to provide me that service in Guatemala City, Guatemala. A gringo company (not U. S.; U.S. companies in general strive to give better service. Gringo, as in ‘down-and-out, dirty-and-gritty gringo’), with no respect for its customers or for itself.
In this country, it keeps its base firmly closed, never answering the door. Its phone is never answered. It has a call center that, likewise, has never answered, not even once. On the Internet, it gives out several places in the U.S. in which it’s supposedly based.
So, how bad is Convergence Communications Inc., Guatemala, based in Sunrise, FL, or perhaps in Salt Lake City, UT?
Man, it’s bad enough so that you’d want to have two subscriptions to its cable-TV service, so that, when they bill you for the two, you can deny them payment twice.
This time, right in the middle of the Football World Championship (soccer to you), my cable-TV service has been out of commission for more than a week. Not the first time this year either. At a couple of previous times it has been out of service for another more-than-a-week time. Without even mentioning haw often the pic just snaps off with a crack ─this must harm my TV some─, and stays out for several hours.
I just hope that some other company, somewhere, has expansion plans, and is, perhaps, investigating the possibility of paying some sweet money for Convergence Communications Inc., Guatemala, based in Sunrise, FL, or perhaps in Salt Lake City, UT.
DON’T DO IT! You’d be buying a crooked and dirty shell of a company, indefectibly directed to failure. You’d be burdening yourselves with a company that young Guatemalan hoodlums could, unavoidably, rum more ably. And many Guatemalan companies DO give better service. I happen to be masochistic.
