NBN DROPPING OUT

Level 1b
I have gotten my internet installed not even a week ago after over a month of mess ups and back and forth unreliable communication after moving houses.
Now another problem has occurred that my internet keeps on dropping out every hour through out the day for 15-20minutes continuously!
What on Earth is going on TPG??? And why am I paying for a service that is unreliable?
Has anyone else experienced this and actually got it sorted? I’m seriously considering changing providers as this is unacceptable.

Hi @Mb08

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

I was able to locate your account using your community details and have performed tests to determine what's causing the connection dropouts. Our tests reveal a possible NBN line problem.

 

I can only imagine how frustrating your experience has been for you which is why I have already escalated this matter to our Engineering team. I have requested for them to call you for a feedback on the case before 1:30PM WA time. I have provided our Engineering team your contact details on your account. Should you wish to provide a different number or if you have a preferred callback time, send us a private message.

 

You may refer to this link on how to send a PM: https://community.tpg.com.au/t5/Welcome/How-do-I-private-message-PM-in-the-community/td-p/4093

Hi Will,

It is now 1.35pm and still no call from your engineering team?

Hi @Mb08

 

My apologies for the delayed response.

 

Our Engineering team attempted to contact you initially on the number that was on your account. Nonetheless, I have already provided them with your preferred contact number. I can see that our Engineering team already sent an SMS to your updated contact number as well.

 

I checked the progress of your case and a ticket was already raised to NBNCo. An NBN technician appointment has been booked for you as well. The schedule is on Thursday, 14 February 2019, 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM and your attendance is required for the NBN tech visit.

Hi Will,

I have not received a text message from TPG at all today regarding the issue.

Again, the calls and text messages have been sent to the old number which I have asked 3 times to change, and was confirmed each phone call I had with TPG that it was in fact changed/updated.

You had no issues updating my credit card details and taking money out in the first initial call yet when it comes to a simple phone number request it seems that cannot be completed.

It is so ridiculous, I have never encountered this level of dissatisfaction with a service company before.
