How long do HFC outages last? 3166 Constant disconnects.

[ Edited ]

Beyond frustrated at this point. Over a week of ongoing disconects from online gaming. Service is unusable. NBN is 2 years away in my area (3166). I've been an optus customer for 15+ years since they rolled HFC out in this area.


How much longer can I expect this level of service?

The network status page shows several tower issues as well as a disruption to the cable service. Apparently the cause of the problem is still under investigation so it would be a bit difficult to say when the service would be restored. Might pay to give support a call as they might know more about the issue than the network status page is saying.
