NBN drop out

I have connected to the Optus NBN on the 17/10/2018. Since the day of the connection, I am experiencing drop out  2 to 3 times a day. I have called the technical support a number of times, they don't offer much of the help and I have replaced the modem as well. Can anyone can help from Optus.

Re: NBN drop out

2-3 dropouts a day sounds like a difficult one to diagnose. Unfortunately most of the NBN and Telco promises are about speed so itsit's h to get a benchmark of what dropout rate is acceptable. 

 

You've done the right first steps so I'd suggest asking Optus to send out a NBN tech to investigate on site. 

 

@SteveGee, ABB definitely have a service model that IMO all rsps would do well to copy. Staff are not only knowledgeable and empowered to impliment solutions but they also take proper ownership over resolving a problem.

 

However sometime leaving Optus may not be possible or desirable. I reckon there's still a good chance this can be fixed at Optus.

Re: NBN drop out

@yeu20012000,

 

That does sound very specific. Are you able to get it down to a specific 30 minute window? Is it every night? 

 

Anything in the house happen regularly around then? 

 

If you can tell Optus a specific timeframe then they can tell NBN and I'd say they have a good chance of finding a cause.
