@morningside,

 

We're happy to cover off some diagnostics as I've done for @Peter1812.

 

I'd need you to shoot through your account details. We're after your full name, DOB and account number. Look forward to hearing back.

@Peter1812,

 

I responded directly to the private message you'd sent us. Has that one not come through to your inbox? We use a separate service platform to respond to posts via YC and other Social media channels. I might need to go in and manually check that it's gone through. I won't be too long.

Thankyou - will PM the details

Hi Dan_C

 

to answer your questions

 

1. I have always been an Optus customer since moving to this house a numbers of yeas ago 

2. I have not previously been with another ISP

 

as for 2.5mbps that may well be what is attainable on the service however I am only getting less than 1mbps and sometime down to less than a quarter of 1mbps in peak times. 

 

I’m paying $100 per month for an service that is barely operational and not sufficient to display Netflix without constantly buffering, as well as an inability to run YouTube videos. 

 

A competitor ISP has approached me to move to them however I’m reluctant to move as I have been an Optus customer for a longtime and value a long term relationship.

 

You mention that 2.5mbps is the maximum that I can receive on my service. Can you tell me what is the minimum bandwidth that optus will provide me on my service? Is it less than 2.5mbps?

 

What other options are open to me?

 

Thanks

pete

@Peter1812

 

We do have a TIO mandated speed guide line that gives us benchmark of minimum attainable speeds based on distance from the exchange. I've had a quick look and it doesn't give us an indication past the 2.5KM mark. At 2.5KM you'd expect speeds in the range of 6Mbps - 6.2Mbps. I guess the issue now is whether we're able to adequately service you considering the length of copper running between the exchange and your premises. 

 

What sort of speeds were you receiving when you'd initially joined us? As far as your options are concerned, I can recommend the following:

 

I can raise a referral with a case management team and have them perform a Network investigation. We should be able to determine whether there's an issue at a Network level. If they're unable to identify the issue, the next step is to determine whether it's an issue with your internal wiring or equipment. In that case, we could then offer you a new WiFi modem. It's also worthwhile having a read through this blog → https://yescrowd.optus.com.au/t5/Blog/Network-Boundary-Point-and-call-out-fee-information/ba-p/27406...

 

"The Network Boundary Point (NBP) is the end-point of our network, and where our legal responsibility ends. Anything beyond the Network Boundary Point is the responsibility of the building owner or the customer."

Thanks Dan, could you give me a more specific timeframe than ‘shortly’ please? We’ve been without useable internet for 2+ weeks. Does shortly mean 24hrs? 48hrs?
