Just letting you know that forum etiquette is to reply to private messages with a private message. No hard fast rule though.
Your speeds on FTTP suggest an underlying NBN issue (or faulty modem) which Optus would normally raise with NBNCo as only they can fix it. Being constantly bad is actually a good thing as it makes it very easy for a technician to try trace the root issue. Its when something only happens occassionally that it can take ages to try fix.
I'll leave it up to you and Shauna to discus options from here.
Hi @SteveGee, I've replied back to that one.
You're welcome to chat with us there!
problems being solved.
The Optus modem wifi seems to be the culprit by bypassing using an Edimax WAP
but it is still on 2.4 ghz.
last weeks congestion has eased even at night so I guess all the schoolies have headed back into the classroom and are using government networks.
once Dan lifted my system off the fault diagnosis Stable setting back to Standard the speeds on both my edimax was 48 mbps and the Optus Broadcom 38 increased 75%
Which is what I paid for and signed up for.
Got $10 per month for six months off the bill as compensation.
Thank you Optus Dan, Julie Joel and Edgar.
Are you paying any attention to our problems or NOT

This is not a debate.

Simply put. 99% of customers get dropouts and slow speeds during peak periods. Mine is no different.
My internet is so slow I can't even login to a Facebook page
Always between these hours:
Mon-Fri 6pm until 12am.
Sat-Sun 9am until 3am.
Optus will give you the run around by telling you to "reset your modem" or try to convince you that you modem is faulty, but before that, you'll need to navigate your way through a plethora of "customer support" phone calls to the Philippines where Optus's outsourced call centre is located, after which you'll be connected to an "operator" who barley speaks a word of English and will ask you to repeat yourself 400 times. After that, the conclusion will always be the same... Optus skimps on Bandwidth which is why your internet is dead slow, they skimp on customer support which is why they outsource it to an impoverished 3rd world country, and they receive their customers with claims of fast NBN broadband when in reality you're receiving sub standard service without the appropriate infrastructure to support the service you were intentionally misled into signing up for.
Class action is a comin' peeps.
Please post all your complaints and concerns.
