TPG NBN keeps dropping out.

Level 2
Hello guys, Since I changed from the pretty reliable ADSL2+ to NBN Unlimited the previously stable and reliable connection keeps dropping out every hours a couple of times for a minute or two. Does anyone else have the same issue or it's only me in the Runcorn, QLD area with this annoying problem? Thank you.

I too am not that happy with the NBN connection since I moved across from ADSL2+.


My recommendation for anyone considering moving across to NBN - stay on ADSL2+ as long as you can!


I work from home and my connection has been dropping around 9am for 5 to 10 minutes every hour or so. Makes it really difficult to work from home.


I'm looking at going onto a 4GX plan from Telstra - as I thinkt hat will be more reliable.


I have contacted technicians on a number of times - and after a day or so they reply to say that the network seems to be OK now - but don't seem to acknowledge the network dropped when I raised the issue.


Contacting a technician does not provide any assistance - and they don't know anything except how to reply to an email!
