ADSL Connection shockingly slow for watching Optus sport


Dead Optus,

I would like you to resolve my situation regarding being sold a $120 plan that does not satisfy my what was detailed in the advertisement. Firsly the only reason I changed providers and chose the $120 reach plan was to watch the premier league via fetch box, thinking it may somehow be better speed and quality. It is barely watch able at 6mb/s while using even one other device. I have been sold a plan which I cannot even use and the Optus website suggests I can get Optus cable. I would like my 24 month contract moved to the cable network, because for $120 per month ADSL plan this just is not good enough. I've been a long time mobile customer and been very impressed by Optus customer service, however the broadband service has been utterly disappointing.

Optus do you read your customers posts? I haven't even got a response from you regarding my issue. Baffling really...

I have exactly the same issue. I left foxtel to watch premier league and champions league with Optus. I never had an issue with foxtel, but now I can't watch a single footbal game with my fetch box... I have spent hours and hours with tech support, but during the last 2 months nothing has changed. I COULDNT WATCH A SINGLE FOOTBALL GAME YET! Streaming stops every 2 minutes, when is running you can't recognize faces that's how blurry the images is and I get charged for this. The latest is that they will send me a new modsem to see if that would solve the issue...

I am not happy, paying $105 per month and not able to watch tv at all at all and sometimes it takes 2 minutes to send an email...
