Complaint - still no home phone connection after 5 months

Hi TPG,

 

My username is adslpg6s. I am posting a complaint here because I have run out of options. I have been a loyal TPG customer since 2001, and this time I am truely disappointed.

 

I switched to your NBN bundle (with home phone) about 5 months ago, from your ADSL2+ service. The NBN was connected efficiently, however, my existing home phone was never ported over from Telstra. As a result, I have been unable to use my phone number (been using it for over 20 years) for 5 months.

 

During this time, I have contacted TPG at least 3 times. Everytime I was promised that it'd be fixed and ported over, and everytime I received no feedback. As of today, 25 May 2020, my phone number still not ported over.

 

My request/demand is simple, please port my old phone number over ASAP. Please find someone who can actually act on it to call me. Please do not get that colleague of yours from the Customer Retention team to contact me again, she does not have the access to fix my issue.

 

Thank you
Jason
