Did I make a mistake with TPG?

Level 2

It has been 2 weeks since I paid for the services. I was told, you will be hooked up in 7 working days.They were so nice and prompt on the phone to take the money, I almost thought "internet provider that actually does its job" sign me up. After the money was deducted, silence.... so I decided to have this conversation in the open.
I have already hooked up my router setup with wifi enabled and already have all ADSL2+ hook up ready to go. Just need activation of service. 
And you will be tempted to say "telstra technician needs to see your installation" - that is not true. If the infrastructure exists, you can very easily enable services without telstra needing to do a verification. Installation date is unknown. Get me my internet or return the money.


Hi @aakashbadiani , we'd like to look into this and help with the resolution. Please send us a private message with your TPG customer ID, username and complete address so we can pull up the account.

So the TPG customer care called me saying ADSL2+ is not available in my location (I literally have the ADSL 2+ infrastructure in front of me). She also said I “need” to upgrade to a NBN connection. She conveniently did not know how long it will take or what cost it will be.


How bad are your customer retention numbers guys?


Since you cant manage the services that I requested, there is no option but to return the money an cancel my subscription without fees.
