A "new" problem.
The landline has been ported. So our landline now rings when our customers ring us.
But while we can hear the other party perfectly, they only hear a sputter or two of our side occassionally. The modem has been power cycled twice, and the handset changed to one that is tested working perfectly elsewhere.
Have informed Jax to assist with checks.
In case you read this and wonder, this is still in progress.
The good thing is that we get regular updates from Jax, so someone IS (finally) caring enough about a customer's problem.
Got a Private Message from Jax's team member.
Aparrently our landline number is still active in our previous provider's billing system which caused a conflict as they're a Wholesale customer of Optus'.
Customers still "can't" call us (we have redirected incoming calls to our mobile which is out on the bay and doesn't have a good signal, so we cannot really have a conversation with our customers/hotels ringing to make a booking), since - if use our landline - they cannot hear us.
Should be sorted out "...by today". ???
Hi Kris, hope you've been well. I'm back in the office and I've heard that this has finally been closed off as resolved and port complete. Hannah mentioned that that you still cannot receive calls and that we can't see any diversion here from our end? When you're back in this afternoon can you please let me know how you go as I can see you were saying you'd cancel the diversion at your end? I'm hoping this will all work now from this afternoon. Fingers and toes are crossed.
Thanks for your efforts Jax. You and your team cared! (If only it was easier to get caring support more easily!)
I will be back in the office later this afternoon (no use going in when the phone cannot be used ) and will cancel the diversion to the boat's mobile phone. Then try again . Perhaps you ring me at 4:30 PM NSW/VIC time (3:30 PM Queensland time)?
Morning Kris, I'm going to book a technician to come out and check the line there. Will you be available on Wednesday afternoon between 12pm - 4pm? Jax
Day 124 Update
The porting is "properly" completed now. But the same problem with the phone, ie. Internet is working, but landline can hear the calling or called party, but they still cannot hear us.
The on-site tech failed to turn up, and no one called to say she/he was not coming.
Apparently it's now being looked at by "Adam of NBN"....
