Class action


Fetch tv Streaming issue again!


Is everyone is having problems streaming. I thought Telstra were bad but Optus are in a league of their own. Worst thing i ever did moving to Optus. 

Before Optus reply your responses will be as follows.


1. Do a soft reset.

Improves it for a couple of days

2. Do a hard reset

Improves it for a couple of days

3. We will send you a new box (but you can't use the old one while waiting for delivery)

Five phone calls later trying to find where your new box is and two turn up

4. New box works for a few days and fails again


I think the underlying cause is the network hasn't the band width for streaming tv but they can't admit that can they!

PS typing this while looking at a black screen with a message " Steaming issue, please check internet"


Time for the crowd to do something together to force Optus to sort their problems out i think.


Re: Class action


Probably your NBN is faulty. They will blame NBN for that.

Re: Class action


Mine is terrible as well!

Re: Class action


Let me know where to sign up. Fetch is pathetic, my set top wont receive FTA which has something to do with a known fault. The joke is that Optus selected "some" customers and the prblem was resolved with a splitter. Problem is that they dont have any in the warehouse. I've been waiting for six weeks after being told, "I'll email the warehouse and get back to you" hahahahaha

I found your post after typing a search for NBN but I also noticed that the only reference to NBN was in a response to your enquiry.


I too had issues with low bandwidth warnings and messages about multiple devices using my resources when very few devices were in use, I however am still on ADSL2.  I can relate to all those anoying questions and suggestions you were asked. Eventually a technician was sent out and it was actually someone who knew what he was doing. He left a device connected to my phone socket and disappeared down the road returning about an hour later. Apparently my line was close to a power source at the 'node point' and he cranked up the current supplying my property. I don't know if that makes sense to anyone? but all I know is it fixed the problem.


I have long suspected that the ADSL2 service was being undermined to push customers toward NBN believing they would get a better service? I am holding out with ADSL2 as long as I can; but I am even more surprised that the ACCC hasn't intervened and abolished the 18 month period for change from when NBN becomes available in an area. Having to make the switch to a substandard system is ridiculous.


Best wishes
