TPG NBN FTTN Frequent Connection Drop-Outs ...

Level 3


We had been happy with speed & stabillity on our NBN FTTN connection since signed up with TPG (Sep 2018). However, recently in the last few weeks we are getting dropouts very frequently throughout the day/night (not just peak-hours).

Is there anyone having the same problem?

Note, We are still using the modem provided by TPG.



Hi @Locd


Welcome to the Community! 


We're also unhappy to learn that you are experiencing issues with the service. We're definitely here to help!


I've located your account and ran remote tests which showed some drop outs on the connection. We are yet to determine what's causing them as of yet and needs further investigation.


Have you perhaps tried doing any basic troubleshooting on your end? Like rebooting or resetting your modem? If not, we will need to perform troubleshooting along with you to check for any underlying issues. Kindly let us know of your best contact time & number via private message so we can organise a call back to be made from our Technical team.

Thank you for your response.

Yes, We have been rebooting (turn Off/On) the modem every time drop-out occurs but does not seem to improve at all. 


I see. I'll organise a contact to be made from our Technical Team for further assistance. Can I please have your best contact time & number via private message

Hi Ahra,

Tech called and asked to reset modem. Service is to be monitored and adviced in the next 24 hrs.

I have just done a speed test and found the max download speed is only 28Mbps. Should it be about typical speed of ~40Mbps for NBN50?

Can you advise tech to look into the issue with speed as well please? Thanks



That's definitely noted, Locd


I've seen that the issue has now been escalated to our Engineering Team for further testing and investigation. Their team will be in touch via SMS or phone call to provide further updates.

Currently, we're seeing the connection does drop but the test results does not show an issue with the physical line. 


I've now made changed on the line to improve your connection. 


But I would still recommend to have one of our technicians reach you as there are other factors that would affect your service that we need to consider.

I have noticed the max download speed has dropped to under 17Mbps in the last 48 hours, even during daytime. What happened?
