Haven't been able to get internet access all day. Apparently there are no outages in my area, I have followed the trouble shooting steps on the Support page to no avail. What do I do next? The support page says to "contact us" but with Optus this isn't really possible as phone calls cycle through unending menus that never lead to a person or an answer.

If you've run through all the troubleshooting then you would need to speak to us so we can check your connection. If calling isn't bringing you any success I'd suggest messaging us, or if you have a Facebook or Twitter send us a message on one of those platforms and our Social Media team will assist as best they can.

We haven’t had internet connection for one day. I have tried several times and can’t get through to Optus by phone although the recording says this is a priority issue. So who is getting through by phone? I have tried several times to use the app for messaging and had several codes texted to me, but each time a get a message that it can’t connect. Also tried to connect with another phone. This is extremely frustrating! Telstra has hired an extra 1000 call centre staff to help customers - what is Optus doing?
Pretty sure we're doing the same, if not more than that. Anyway..
What kind of internet, veryfedup?
