Can't receive calls on my home phone

I have been facing problems with my home phone since 3 March. Called TPG several times. After lengthy wait time, I could connect to the help desk but the technician couldn't solve the problem and referred to their engineering team. On one morning, I ws finally lucky to get connected to the TPG engineering team. After brief checks, the technician decided that my modem had issues and need replacement and was sent a lone modem. After receiving the loan modem, I connected that but no luck with the home phone and called again. This time it took aver 40 minutes to get connected to a technician and still the problem couldn't be resolved. After 3 days, finally I got my outgoing calls enabled but incoming calls still disabled. Is there any easier way to communicate with the TPG help desk and get the issue resolved. I am with TPG since 2014and never had similar problems or never had to call them multiple times for same problem.

It is finally resolved. I can receive and make calls from my home phone.

Since last few days I am having internet speed issues (dropped from 45 Mbps to around 6 Mbps).

Hey - I am having the same issues - how did you end up resolving it? I have just been sent a new modem - did that seem to help?

 

Thanks

Hi Basil!

 

We are having issues trying to relocate our service (as do a lot of other customers) and no one is even trying to help. This is urgent as it is impacting my work-from-home situation. I have tried everything - phone calls, chat, community posts.

 

Please could you respond?
