Dropouts every 5 minutes
Connection speed is one third of what it normally is when it works
No technical support - prerecorded message says to hang up and try later
No suggestion of issues on Service Status
What's happening TPG? You used to be great!
Welcome to Community!
Certainly not the feedback we'd like to hear; even so, we know there's always room for improvement and we strive daily to make more and more positive ones.
I found your account using your Community details and can see that the issue is now raised to our Engineering team. They have coordinated this matter with Telstra and have set a commitment to check the service between now and 19/Feb/2020.
We apologise for the inconvenience.
We truly understand the frustration, @pedrohustler.
Due to the weather condition, there are multiple connection issues that we are trying our best to attend to hence the delay in responses and lengthy queue wait times.
Nevertheless, there is a possibility that Telstra already attended to the fault as I can see that your connection is now stable for almost a day now.
Should you require further assistance, feel free to reply directly to the SMS sent by our Engineers or let us know here.
We apologise for the inconvenience, our Technical Team is currently receiving a high volume of calls. Unfortunately, due to similar issues in the area, Telstra technicians are experiencing overwhelmingly high workloads and tech response times are longer than normal. We've seen that you have been in contact with one of our Engineers and advised the fault case progress.
We apologise for any inconvenience for any inconvenience.
- Please consider that a lot of people won't understand why Telstra is involved in this process as wholesaler.
- I have spoken with several people at TPG about my issue. They have all acknowledged there is a known issue in my region due to weather affecting ADSL. TPGs own service status does not reflect this and says there are no known issues. Why is this not updated?
- @Ahra_G 's reply was extremely unhelpful and raised my hopes that my issue was resolved. After returning home and realising the issue remained, I spoke with engineering who has suggested this problem may not be resolved for another 8 days. This is extremely poor communication consistency and abysmal customer service and I would appreciate an apology from @Ahra_G
- I am facing not having internet for 10 days. This seems like a first world problem, but it is vital for my business. When I asked customer service for a temporary 4G system they said this was not possible. You should really consider options for customers (especially long term customers like myself) to offer 4G backup in situations like mine.
We appreciate your feedback, while we will endeavour to make the Service available to customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the Service is not fault free and we cannot guarantee uninterrupted service, or the speed, performance or quality of the service.
We understand the inconvenience this has caused, we do not provide interim service while we endeavor to restore a service fault. The billing adjustment will be discussed once the technical issue has been fixed. This will be subject for approval and investigation.
We have identified that the issue is with the core network controlled by Telstra and is affecting a multiple number of homes. This unfortunately means only Telstra technicians have the authority to fix this fault. Further updates will be provided when it becomes available.
Great news guys! After a week of TPG blaming Telstra for my issues it turns out I still need to get someone out to resolve issues on TPGs end because my download and upload speed is less than half of what it was.
I've just spent more than two hours this evening on hold going through the customer service circus trying to find someone to book in a technician. This included being hung up on whilst holding!
Shame TPG, shame.
We apologise for the poor experience.
As a re-seller, we rely on Telstra to provide the service therefore, we are subjected to their connection timeframe as well as scheduling. We use Telstra's infrastructure hence Telstra techs are the only ones who can attend and fix any line fault. Since they confirmed that the line is clear now, we will be sending TPG tech to investigate any underlying cause of the connection drop outs, which may include checking the line/connection within your premises and even the equipment in use.
The appointment for Saturday, 22 Feb between 10am-2pm is already booked by our Engineering team.
Should you have further queries, feel free to let us know.
