TeleYemen’s Bad Internet Service [Archives:1997/43/Local News]

October 27 1997

Many users of TeleYemen’s internet services are frustrated. Not only does the monopolistic company over-charge, but the quality of the service is lousy. One of the major problems is that users are randomly disconnected while on-line. Dr. Abdul-Karim Al-Iryani, Foreign Minister, a customer, has personally complained to the Minister of Communications, Mr. Ahmed Al-Anisi. Another minister, Eng. Mohammed Al-Tayyeb, Minister of Labor and Vocational Training, also complained. Both ministers, and some 80 customers, have signed a letter of complaint to the Minister of Communications. The Minister, himself an efficient man, is said to be considering the options.
