For the next 48 hours, all the games will be on SBS while OPTUS look to resolve the issues....BEST POSSIBLE RESPONSE!
Want some advice Optus?
Go to you subscription database, count how many people are paying $15/month for the football....add, let’s say 20-25%
Thats how many people you need to provide for, if that number is bigger than your servers can handle, then leave the World Cup with the professionals at SBS
Yeah, the 'unprecendented demand' excuse was a pretty thin one.
More believable was that until now Optus has had full control over the network its customers were using (you had to be an Optus customer). Now the NBN controls a lot and of course anyone from any Telco can now try watch. Of course rival Telcos have little incentive to try tweak their network to streamline Optus viewing.
Are you from a different Telco @Ranger_13? Presumably not if you're posting here?
IMO Optus should be announcing the current month to be immeadiately creditted (on request). That would hopefully stop people just cancelling now and give them time to try improve the situation. Right now if I was thinking of getting Optus or a WC subscription I would be thinking twice based on the bad media.
