Technical Help Please

Can anybody recommend a good Internet Service Provider in Kuwait?

We're currently with UCC, previously QualityNet, and we're not too happy with our current provider. The connection freezes up a lot and often we're left with days of no service. Also, every time we call, they don't answer the Technical Support calls unless you call the Sales desk - who always answer the calls -  and complain that the Tech people aren't answering.

So, any recommendations please? And some explaining as to why, would be excellent thanks.

Regardless of what is there, your best bet is Qnet. Kems is a good option, but price might not suit you. FT is expensive for home use, but depend on the speed you want.

Do your research on prices, and speed, then check Kems, Qnet, FT, and pick cheapest.

I always recommend UnitedNetworks (though they suck as tech support but they're good in services) and kems (though their prices are abit high)...

Qnet SUCKS!

Qualitynet or Zajil .. pick the one with the best price for the speed you want.

This subject really irritates me. The prices are TOO high in kuwait! Especially in comparison to other countries! Where I study I get a 6MB speed for the price of 10 kd a month!!!!

I would try for Zaijel Kems, and then Qualitynet, those are the best two. Which area do you live in if you don't mind me asking, that also gives us an idea of the quality of service you have in your area!

Purgatory: I want the best service and quality. Don't really care about the price (I'm not paying for it hehe)

q8geek: We're not happy with United, so that's why we're changing.

k.thekuwaiti and 3baid: thanks a lot.

Japanese thingy: Thanks for the tip.

hasan.b: i know, they're ridiculous here.

Marzouq: Qortuba.

Is the internet for everyone in your house, or just you?

I have Zain's "E-Go." It's a USB that connects to your lap top or desktop, and works ANYWHERE in Kuwait. The price is not bad for super fast internet and unlimited GB of download. I pay about 11KD a month...
