Why is the hold time so ridiculous?!

I need to reactivate a phone that was put on a seasonal hold.  Tried doing this online several times but received an error message (on multiple browsers/devices).  I called koodo at 11:10 a.m. today, and was on hold until around 12:30, when I was just randomly disconnected (wait music turned to 'busy signal')... wow!  I called right back, and have been on hold for more than an hour and a half now.  In a few minutes I will have spent 3 hours waiting on hold.  I've already tried messaging them on facebook, but it doesn't look like anyone has seen my message.  What is going on??

Hello Zaina.

Eventually someone will see your message on FB and you'll get an answer. That's your best bet or call in the moringin!

Hey Robert,

I appreciate the nice response. Someone did eventually answer the phone (almost 3.5 hours later.).  The rep seemed to not believe that I had tried to do this several times online and kept receiving the same error message (I was saying that I should not be charged the $10 fee for switching services over the phone, since I could not do the same online - I was not even complaining about the ridiculous wait!).  Why would I spend almost 3.5 hours on hold to talk to someone if I could have easily done what I needed to do online?.... anyway! Definitely not impressed.
