Installation technician did not show up, no communication

Level 1c

I was told to stay home yesterday from 1:00 to 5:00 waiting for the installation technician. But he never turn up. There was no communication whatsever. I contacted TPG at about 5:00, they couldn't get update from NBN, but told me the technician could be late and just be patiant and wait. So I waited until bed time. 

 

No one bother to send me a messge informing me the scheduled installation is cancelled or postponed due to wahtever reason, leaving me waiting and chasing around. Each phone call could easily be a half an hour waiting game.

 

Very frustrated!

It's nearly a week now since they failed to attend the installation appointment. Haven't heard anything from NBN Co.

 

It's hard to believe this is real. How can they ignore a customer who has paid for the service like this? You may have reasons for the delay, but you can't ignore customers. By all means it's not acceptable!!!

I just rang TPG again. The case manager told me that NBN Co reported that I refused the installation !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Is this a normal practice???????????

I appreciate the manager's assistance. Now I am booked for 25th Jan. How do I avoid "refusing the appointment" this time?

 

I feel that TPG didn't help much either. I was told before as soon as they have information from NBN Co they would contact me. However NBN Co reported on 31st Dec that I "refused the appointment" and TPG didn't do anything until now I rang them. It's not easy to get the phone through to the case manager. each phone call takes anything form half an hour to one hour. So I rely them to contact me and they fail

 

Can I trust any body?

I have waited at home for 4 hours without the technician showing up to install the nbn in my house.  Phoned TPG and they said they could not contact him.

Received a phone call from NBN co just now - told them my issue and they hanged up the phone.

Not very happy as I have taken the day off work to do this.

What happens now?

Hi @stevepop

 

Welcome to the Community! 

 

We install thousands of NBN service everyday and we apologise that your installation experience has not been smooth sailing. I've managed to locate your account using your Community details and it appears that a Case Manager has been assigned to chase and follow up on the progress of the installation. 

 

I will arrange a contact to be made from a Case Manager to provide you with updates. Kindly expect it in an hour. 

 

Please don't hesitate to let me know should you have further queries. 

 

 

Regards,
