No, the temporary cell trailer is useless for calls from my Malua Bay/Lilli Pilli location. Optus is at risk of a dismal fail in our bushfire zone in our third month with no mobile or internet service.
Due to this issue, managing our respective call centres and hotlines is a big of a juggling act at the moment however supporting our bushfire impacted customers is definitely still a priority. Thank you for calling this out.
I can get somebody to give you a call, please send your details to yescrowd @ optus dot com dot au (all one word to dodge the privacy filter)
Hello - since this morning, my landline (and only phone) is dead ; the Optus website directs faults to a message 'Messaging is closed'.
Now what ?
Landline runs via the internet, internet is working fine otherwise
Hey @gee3gee3, we all know how important a landline can be. Here are a few suggestions that might help. Due to Covid-19 our centres are affected including messaging.
- Because your landline uses your internet connection it is a good idea to turn your modem off for at least 30 second before Turing it on again.
- Check your internet is not experiencing any connection issues.
- Make sure your phone line is connected correctly into the modem.
These steps helps a lot of the time, however you can do some further troubleshooting if needed.
