This seems to be there solution, as they are also doing the same thing to me. The only advice I can give is to just keep on them. I honestly can't believe that the NBN is worse than Boradband. At lease with the old system is was reliable. I have never had this many issues until I changed over to the NBN.
I'm actually wondering if it will fix the core problems, or is the NBN complany quite happy to roll out a crap service that people are now being forced to get as old services are being phased out.
I have been experiencing drop outs and connection issues since joining up. I did spend about 3 months actually getting connected with i first joined up. It is better, slightly, but when 80% of the internet is used on streaming TV and Movies, dropouts are more than just frastrating when it's happening way to often.
Again, the only advice I can give is to just keep on them.
Hi @Jc1668 if you could please send through any fault reference or PR numbers you've been provided in regards to these technician visits along with the full name, number and date of birth attached to the account via a PM we'd be happy to take a closer look into this for you. Please bear in mind as we're not a technical team we may still need to refer you onto the correct department.
Send us a PM @Jc1668.
I'll have a scroll through the trouble ticket we'd raised and confirm what work was done.
There should be a timestamp left on the account each time the service drop outs. We're also given a description code to help us identify the root cause of the issue.
I need your full name, DOB and account number.
Look forward to hearing back.
We have had the problem for a long time now. Not long after we changed to NBN we started having the intenet drop out most days, even 4 and 5 times on some days. We have been on live chat at least 4 times now about our connectivity problems and they spend a lot of time going over the problem that has already been discussed on previous occassions. Don't they keep a record of complaints? Their solution is to ask me to do a speed test, say that they will investigate the problem, then send a message saying the problem is fixed. They did send me a new modemaround 6 months ago I think, but the issue with dropping out is still the same. I have given up complaining. I have explained that the problem is with the constant dropping out and losing phone and internet and having to reboot. The problem is not with speed. It works fine when it is working, but we have taken down notes of the drop out times in our calendar. We have asked them to pass the problem onto the NBN. We can hardly wait for our contract to finish as we are already investigating which operator to go to...it won't be Optus!
Disappointing to hear about your experience, jjh.
Confirming earlier responses from our Moderators, please don't hesitate to PM them with any reference numbers and they'll be happy to look into it further.
