I'll no doubt be caned by a Moderator for spamming the same issue on a different thread, but have a look at my posts under the title of Slow NBN Speeds.
Don't cane me Mods, cane Optus management for not listening, not investing and not responding.
I've spent over 30 hours on the issue of congested CVC's and getting upgraded to a "free" boost to 100/40 that delivers 3/20 to as high as 21/32 during peak times.
After spending all my time on phone calls including escalations, in my businesses I would expect Retentions TO BE CALLING ME, not me calling again on a fruitless mery-go-round.
Optus could save a LOT of $'s scrapping their non-existent "Customer Service" areas and ploughing those $'s into improved CVC's and infrastructure. It wouldn't need an MBA to develop that business case...!!!
I am paying for 25/5 Mbps NBN fixed wireless in country WA and can hardly get 2/3 Mbps. The old satellite was quicker than this and that was like watching paint dry. I've had a gutsful of not being able to contact anybody in Australia, no dedicated tech support, no answers to my messages on Facebook or Messenger. Optus care factor is obviously zero so....no more customer. Simples.
We do care about our customers @Army66, we do try our hardest to get back to all our customers asap. At the moment we are busy and there will be a delay in our replies. If you need to chat with someone urgently, please call our NBN team on 1300300427 (option 1, 3 and then option 2) and they'll be able to assist. Also, what was your Facebook user name?
@GKarklins, Miles has offered to help out however, we haven't heard back from you 😞
We do care @wannabeastar, we don't want our customers to be unhappy with the service and not be able to use it. Not only is this a poor experience for customers but also a loss in business for us too. I'll send you a PM, chat soon.
This has been going on for months, can you explain for the suffering customers why the upgrades are taking so long.
Don't you have a team of engineers to tackle these issues? I would say it's the highest priority at the moment.
Please breakdown the process so we understand. It's not like it's a new report.
If it's not enough bandwidth just say so, but at least give us a timeframe.
We don't know isn't good enough.
@kpc32 The same frustrations you're experiencing with your services are heard, please don't feel that you're not. We do pass on lots of feedback and reports back to our network teams. If there is known issue with regards to peak times slow in your area it is reported back to the relevant teams who then start planning on when this can be alleviated. Once an ETA has been provided to certain areas, customers are notified if you're details are on the register. We do want to ensure the right thing is done by our customers and if there's no ETA available, your options can be discussed.
