ADSL2+ Installation update "Your installation is progressing."

Highlighted
Level 3

I have signed up for an ADSL2+ plan at the start of the month and I am yet to get an update when I can expect my internet to be connected. I fully understand there are delays due to covid-19 but it seem unreasonable that I can not be given at least an estimated install date. I am working from home and I am having to use a 4G modem while I wait for my ADSL2+ connection to be installed, an estimate date would help me know how much data I would need to tide me over untill I am connected. 4G data is not cheap and the costs are stacking up. My support chats are constantly being dropped when I am transfered to my "case manager", I am yet to get any meaningful updates on the matter from anyone I have spoken to.

Hi @tracpants 


Thanks for your query!


Let me have a look for you, and I will get back to you ASAP.


There is also a new ''TPG Mobile APP'' to help you with various trouble shooting and account issues, via a mobile phone app.

Hi @David_M 

 

Following up as I did not receive a call from TPG last week. I have had to chase up with chat and on twitter to get any sort of response. I was able to get an update that I should be expecting an email sometime this week with a technician appt.

Hi @David_M 

 

Following up to say that I am yet to receive details for a tech appointment this week as advised by customer service. I have only received a text to say "remote activation was failed" and TPG will follow up with Telstra, I already knew that we would need a tech to come on site as I was told this by customer service.

 

The lack of meaningful updates is frustrating and contacting customer service is not even worth my time as I am left on a chat for up to an hour only to have the chat closed. I also want to say that "Your installation is progressing." is not a great update, especially when it hasn't changed in so long. Maybe if TPG was able to provide customers with a bit more detail there wouldn't be as many people posting their frustrations on the delay. As stated in my initial post I understand with covid-19 it's not BAU for TPG or Telstra but some transparency would be great.

Hi @tracpants 

 

I have bumped this up the chain again. I hope we can sort it out ASAP.

I absolutely agree with you, bragging about being one of the largest provider it really lacks the ability to provide any sort of service with anything that is meaningful. Honestly, frustrating just being passed on from person to person so called chain that they have in their company.
