NBN connection light flashing red and making clicking noise

Highlighted
Level 2
My NBN went down on Friday after a thunder/lightening storm.
The NCD has the following lights:
Power light = Solid Blue
Connection light = flashing Red.
DSL light = off
LAN light = off

I live in an apartment block and another neighbour has the exact same issue. There no listed outages for my area. Technical support not answering phone calls.

I have turned the NCD off for now as the clicking noise every couple of seconds is quite annoying.

Can anyone assist or should I escalate this to the ACCC? As I require my internet for work reasons and I’m currently paying for a service that isn’t working!

Hi @Jase78,

 

For customers experiencing any issues with their NBN service, we recommend the best thing to do first is check if there's an outage on the NBN network.

 

We have created this article that can guide you on How to Check for NBN Network Outage

 

If there are no known outages in your area, customers can proceed with the troubleshooting steps indicated on this link : https://www.tpg.com.au/support/nbn-fttc/problems_connect_internet_nbn_fttc

 

In your case, an issue with the line outside has been identified and this will be raised to NBN Co. for further investigation.

How long will it take NBN Co to fix this issue?

I too, have red light and clicking noise from my NBN connection box. TPG currently has no phone tech support and live chat is next to impossible to be answered. 

How is this issue resolved? I've had no internet connection for three days!

Hi @Rikan2013,

 

We normally advise customers to check if there's any known outage affecting the service like what we have posted above.

 

If there are no known outages in your area, you can proceed with the troubleshooting steps indicated on this link : Troubleshooting No Internet Connection

 

If the issue persists, we may need to further check if there's a line fault causing the service disruption and if a technician is required to fix it.

Hi Riezi and thank you,

 

I've done all usual checks, ie. Outages; cable connections; resets; power off/on etc. problem still persists. Next door neighbor is also TPG NBN customer and has no issue.
Please advise next step.
