@Mos_2001 I've checked the fault ticket and can see that it's still being worked on. I'd advise chatting with the faults department on 13 13 44 and quoting the fault number 15523036. They will be able to provide you with further info.
Don't suppose there has been any update on this?
Its now been 7 months since I originally logged my ticket without an update.
I can't use my smart TV with my NBN service.. will optus be providing some kind of discount for those of us who can't actually make use of the service being provided by Optus due to an issue with the hardware provided?
I've been watching this keenly for months now.
Got to say not happy (although that has been an all to common occurence in my dealings with Optus to date)... I have 2 smart TV's that I can't use... The message will not go away unless it is disconnected from the network, making my TV dumb...
Perhaps users affected should be compensated the difference between a regular and smart TV since that is what you have essentially done to us....
And lets not even get started with how long your modems take to boot. I was forced to abandon my much better modem to be able to use my existing phones (something I was ASSURED I wouldn't have to do) only to now lose my TV's functionality!
The lack of response is ridiculous. You surely have KPI's and SLA's to meet. It seems this ticket sits parked in a queue for months until another users questions it... It shouldn't need constant prompting to continue to resolve an issue. That is not how helpdesk support and good customer service work. In 9 months this ticket should have been escalted about 20+ times. And if that was the case I can assure you it would be fixed by now!
Well I have some positive news for those affected by this issue.
After politely making my concerns public via the Optus facebook page, I was contacted by a senior engineer who acknowledged it is a bug in the old version of the Sagemcom F@ST 3864 and he's sending me an upgraded modem for free, assuring this will resolve the issue.
That's awesome news.
Now can we get an Optus tech on here to confirm that and let us know the process for the replacement modem, because I would love to have the functionality back in my 2 TV's!
Optus... we are waiting on you 🙂
Please see Timstar's message from this morning.
An Optus tech said it was an issue with the modem and is replacing.
I would like to get mine replaced ASAP also. Please let me know how I go about this.
Hey there @timstar, are you able to post your individual fault reference number so I can take a look? I've had a look at the network ticket and can't see that a fix has been implemented. If I can confirm with the Case Management rep who advised this I'll be able to double check the validity of the fix. If the issue was with a firmware version and there's since been an update, your modems should automatically update with the latest firmware.
Well so far the fix that I was provided (an updated modem) has been unsuccessful.
Atleast when connecting over wifi I still get the same issue. I will try connecting via ethernet tonight to see if that has changed however I suspect it will be the same result.
