Hi Jay, It doesn't sound like a great experience. Obviously something is going wrong with the process but it doesn't sound like anyone is doing more than just try send out the modem again. Can you request to pick one up in store? Possibly get them to deliver it to a family member or in my case I usually get stuff delivered to my work.


Not to sure about the speed issue. This is usually set by Optus and it sounds like you are on speed pack 25Mbps instead of 50Mbps. The modem used shouldn't be a factor normally? What NBN Technology are you on? FTTN? HFC Cable?
