Do you believe that Sify BB Cable Connection is Not safe and Sify won't take responsibility for that.On 29-5-2005 there was a big gale at Hyderabad... and what happened ...as usual ...POWER CUT... But, strange... there was power thro' Sify Cable and the CPU is burnt. :eek: Who is responsible????The Consumer?That is what Sify means.Inspite of Complaints ( # 2001623 dt: 30-5-2005 and Phone call to 9866394300 on 29-5-2005 at 8.45 PM) NO RESPONSE to Answer the reason.....Forget the Compensation.

Thanks for the warning, looks like those CTO's weren't lying when they disconnected the line during rains. They might have been overcautious though.

Well i have heard people say they turn off the computer during thunder-storms because if nothing a surge in the power-lines can burn one's sensitive motherboard. There are surge-protectors out there but there's never 100% guarantee of safety.Looks like there's merit in that.
