I just received the first phone bill of my new appartment. Here it goes :
Line subscription (2 months+20days) = 34,66€ (13€/month)
Phone calls : 3,03€
Exceptional services : 46,12€
Total : 83€80 for a f*cking 1h25min and 36 secs of actuall call.
They charged me 46€12 just to press a button to activate a phone line that has been there for already over 20 years.
In France we are supposed to be able to use another phone provider, but guess what ? In order to do so you ought to have an existing Farce Telecom line first. And when you take one, by contract you have to keep it for at least 12 months, or pay the remaining months if you terminate it before the 12 months.
That means before you ever dream of paying less for the phone, you will still have to pay 46,12+12*13 = 202,12 f*cking euro for a total absence of service. (their call fees are so high that the first thing done is usually to get an additional provider, for which you pay no subscription, just the actual calls - yet, you still have to pay France Telecom).
Is that highway robbery, or is that gunpoint stealing ?
Once again, RHAA !
