hi i recently changed my nbn plan to the $80 plan with the highest speed pack before i was had the middle speed pack and was always almost getting 50/25 ive upgraded to the highest speed but have not had any change in speed i have FTTP which i thought could get full speed. is there a way of checkng if my speed pack i active
I realise its the internet but some attention to punctiation could make what your trying to say clearer.
If you run a speed test off peak (midnight to 6pm) and don't get above 50Mbps then your speed pack is not applied.
Note that getting 100Mbps costs $20 more (so $100 a month).
Your speed pack needs changing in 3 different systems, so it could be possible that one of these was missed. Jump into Live Chat with Tech Support and they can double check for you.
But apparently LIVECHAT looks at "System One" and tells the customer its activated. Leading to frustration on both ends.
If there are three systems why don't customer service people know this?
Why does a process that must occur 100's of times a day often misfire?
Why is the process so opaque to customers?
Surely there should be a guy that gets each request for a speed change. They should get the customers details (including mobile number). They then update the three systems and then confirm the speeds have updated. Finally SMS/Email the customer to tell them to reset their modem and run a speed test. In the event of it not working a direct option to contact Optus could be given to have the failing sorted out on the spot.
Instead, customers put in a request, get told by someone it should happen sometime in the next 1-48 hours. After which they find no change in performance and call back to someone else only to be told its all working. Call back tomorrow if it still isn't etc.
NB These are rhetorical question Toomey as obviously you aren't responsible or able to make any such changes. But surely Optus could take a look at some of these very common day to day customer/Optus interactions and put in place some processes to handle the times when it doesn't go right?
Seems like your speed pack hasn't applied (good to know there's a simple fix to your slow speeds though)
As suggested, all you can do is call back and ask them to check again.
