Have contacted Optus via phone (and spent hours on hold - am on hold right now again) and FB Messenger and cannot get this resolved. It's driving me crazy.
Our ADSL connection is really really slow - internet is pretty much unusable. Cannot work from home and kids cannot do their remote school work, let alone watch netflix or catch-up TV. This is since a tree fell and took out all the aerial cables in our street on 29th April - ALMOST 2 WEEKS AGO. The cables have been 'fixed' but our internet speed is shocking. We have reset the modem multiple times but it makes no difference, and when I called Optus yesterday they said there was no fault on the line.
NBN became available on the 28th April (haha) and we had contacted Optus to connect. We have received the equipment but that's not possible as apparently the NBN connection has not been repaired yet (an NBN technician told me this yesterday). Some communication on when it will be fixed / we can connect would be nice?!
The cables going from the street to our house were pulled when the tree came down and have been damaged where they join our house. No one has inspected / fixed this yet.
Please help!! How do we get these issues resolved?? We need to work from home and do school work remotely due to the pandemic but our current internet connection is making it impossible!!!
Apologies for the ongoing experience you've had with this.
Have you been provided any PR or fault ticket numbers in reference to this?
Could you also please confirm either your suburb/postcode?
North Warrandyte 3113. Today I got a case number via Messenger #355411
Just some communication / information would be great. No one can tell me;
1. if and when the NBN will be repaired and available
2. why the ADSL is so slow and what needs to happen to fix it in the mean time
3. how I arrange to get the cables joining to our house inspected / repaired.
@NotCaroleBaskin hope our issues get sorted soon..!
Hi there AnnaMac,
Hmm, that's not a case number I'm familiar with. What did the Messenger team advise after providing you with that case number?
You should be able to get at least some answers from the Facebook Messenger team, what was their last response? Who did you last speak with?
Okay good to read there has been some progress, keep us posted.
