    Any luck with Claro Business Account Reps in POP office?

    I spent many an hour in the past (most of them less than worthwhile) dealing with the business department at Claro in POP. I don't even know if they have a separate department anymore. I've had much better luck dealing with the business center in Santiago, but it's only been about Cell/Data...

    They had it in La Sirena and Nacional in Santiago up until last month, but just checked recently and couldn't find it, looked at Bravo also. Has anyone seen it around? Preferably in Santiago or on the North Coast. It doesn't have to be Bragg's but it does have to be raw and unfiltered. Thanks!

    Delancer has once again replaced the NFL Network (channel 72) with the MLB Channel. I pay 100 pesos extra per TV for the package that contains NFL Network and now it's gone, presumably until the end of baseball season or the beginning of football season. To make matters worse, when no game is...
