So, still no service from our new internet provider. I particularly like their email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Oh how we laughed. On the plus side, they may be trying to give Mr. Waffle money. I wonder for how long more our current provider will continue to supply broadband and whether we will be cut adrift in a cruel world without internet and television. Still, think of the saving. Recent correspondence below for your delectation because I know that you care.

Subject: Fwd: Register for My eircom to view your new eircom bill online
Dear Sir or Madam
On 2 February I signed up online to get TV, phone and broadband from Eircom. I was given account number [xx]. A technician was supposed to come on 16 February but never turned up. After many contacts with your company, I was advised that it was necessary to cancel this order and start again. On 23 February I got a message (screenshot enclosed) from J in your Customer Care Administration Team confirming that the account had been closed on 19 February.
Since then, I have still not received any service from Eircom. I am still waiting for a technician to come to my house. I have no idea when this might occur (a month after I first attempted to sign up with Eircom).
On 27 February I got a message (below) saying that a bill had issued for my account. The message says that I can view the bill on “My Eircom”. However, when I attempted this, I got a message saying that the account number was no longer an Eircom account. See screenshot enclosed.
I would be grateful for an explanation of (a) how I can see this bill, and (b) what I am being billed for, given that Eircom has not actually provided me with any service and this account has been closed
