How to Check if your NBN service is part of a Planned Maintenance activity

TPG,

 

There is an error with your notification system.  The email alert I have for tomorrow's outage states that it is scheduled between 10:00am and 4:00pm 28/09/2021 AEST.  Whereas the NBN's website states the outage is scheduled between 12:00am and 6:00am 28/09/2021 AEST.

 

I believe the automated system you are using to recieve the alerts from NBN is reading the times from NBN as UTC and adding the 10h difference between UTC and AEST.

Hi @AimeeY, thanks for bringing this matter to our attention and we'll surely pass this on internally. Let us know if you have other queries. Thank you.

Why would you plan an outage during normal work hours??
I am expected to teach a full day online. I'm not able to get out of that. This is not acceptable.

Three times in one week, and with no notice - this is crazy, and not at all useful for those who are trying to work from home!  Do we need to start looking for other service providers?

So has it been out? It's out today too isn't it?

Emergency work is carried out all too frequently. Over the past month: on the 15th, 20th, 23rd, 24th and 29th December; again on 7th January and now today on the 14th January. The high frequency of service disruption is making it impossible to work from home. I am shocked tpg payment was deducted from my account today when I would have expected a refund.

I’m sorry but the frequency of these planned - and unplanned - outages is ridiculous. The latest is a 12hr outage during the day on a Monday. This never happened before NBN. Where’s the redundancy that allows maintenance (or incidents) to happen without taking out all of your customers every time?!?! C’mon. Really not good enough these days.
