Slow speeds and dropouts ticket #8329287

SOLVED Go to solution
Level 1b

Hi there. 


During the last month I've been in contact with TPG regarding repeated incidents of slow speeds and/or dropouts. After a while, I was provided with support ticket #8329287, and was told the issue would be monitored.

I did recieve several calls regarding the ticket, but unfortunately I was working and could not answer or call back. I did reply to texts I recieved, but got no response, so I emailed an address provided in one of the texts, but got no reply.

 

Presently the problem is that once or more per day I'm getting slow speeds of 1-3Mbp, and this is usually accommpanied by a dropout. This usually happens betweet 4pm and 10pm.

Can I please get an update regarding my ticket?

Good day @tashspring68,

 

I reviewed the account and seen that the investigation ticket by our Engineering team has been closed.

 

The TPG technician who visited the site was able to fix the connection issue that you were experiencing. We can now detect a stable internet service and a good sync speed with 20095 Kbps Downstream and 1020 Kbps Upstream.

 

Is it still dropping at your end or giving you slow connection?

BasilDV, I am extremely disappointed and unhappy to hear that the ticket has been closed.

When the tech visited, he disconnected a cable that he thought might be causing the problem. Unfortunately the problem has remained unchanged. He said that the data he collected would be analysed, and that I would get a response after this had happened.

I have recieved no response, the problem is not fixed, and now I find out the ticket is closed. Right now, as I type this, I am having drop outs and speeds of only 1MBPS periodically. I can't work, or watch Netflix.

This is extrmely unsatisfactory. When will the ticket be reopened, and when will I recieve a response as to what is going to be done about our connection?

I was going to give you speed test results, but I can't even get the test to work, because the connection isn't good enough.

Hi Shane,

When exactly did they try to contact me? I've just checked and I have not had any missed calls.

I believe the problem may have been resolved by Erin. She asked me to change some settings in Windows Updates, and since then we haven't had any problems.

Hi @tashspring68, thanks for getting back to us.

 

As per checking, the case engineer has been in touch on 05/April/18 and was able to confirm that the service is properly working. Another callback attempt has been made on the same day, but to no avail.

 

The connection is stable for more than 5 days now and we are glad to know that the issue has been resolved.
