New connection - Issues from day 1

Level 1b

Hello,

 

First of all Well Done to TPG!!!!....

 

TPG marketing team was doing a really good job getting the new customers. In my case they were after me to upgrade my ADSL to NBN. Finally after 2 weeks they convinced me to upgrade.

 

I was so exicited and waited for my NBN connection. After a week TPG and NBN guys activated my service and ofcourse they took money from credit card.

 

They never worried to make sure that internet connection stable enough to use it. Connection is keeps dropping. Now I am chasing them every day to get my internet issue fixed.   Their answer is NBN needs to fix the issue and they don't know how many days will it take to fix the issue.

 

Now I don't have a stable internet connection to work from home. I have to travel to go to work. I was happy with my ADSL connection.

 

Any suggestions ? Why can't they escalate this issue to get it fixed ASAP ?

Hi @alugandulas,

Welcome to the community!
 

We are sad to know that you're having difficulty with your newly installed NBN service. We are able to locate your account using your community. Based on the latest log on file, this issue is now being handled by our Engineering Team.
 

One of our Engineers tried to call you earlier today, unfortunately no avail. Based on the fault's update we identified that the issue is with the network controlled by the NBN Co. This unfortunately means the only NBN Co. Technicians have the authority to fix this fault. We have this escalated to NBN Co and currently waiting for the update.
 

We will chase this up with them and pass this on for additional reference. Further updates will be provided by our Engineering Team via SMS or Phone call. We apologise for any inconvenience.

 

Cheers!

Hey!..

 

Thanks for the same update. in fact from last 4 days you guys are providing me the same update like a recorded audio. How many days will take to get an update from NBN ?   2 days ago one of your engineer said that this issue has escalated to Tier 2 but I got the same message today. I wasn't getting good speed with ADSL but at least it was stable.

I am asking the same question again here. How many days should i wait ? Hope you guys understand the customer's frustation and get this issue fixed asap.

Just out of curiousity, why is tpg still charging as per normal if they claimed it’s beyond their ability to act? Shouldn’t u guys offered to make some monetary rebate to us? I had for almost 3 weeks and abt 1 week I didn’t had any internet connection! So why r we still get charged the full month and not those days we had internet?

We understand that this case is being handled by our Engineering team and an NBN technician was booked to help us resolve the issue within your service.

Thank u for yr prompt reply. No worries at all, wasn’t expecting yr answer to be positive anyway. Heard so much abt yr infamous customer service and can only blamed myself for merely having an unlucky moment to be down with internet for almost a week and all I get is “yr technician has been booked and sorry abt yr inconvenience”. Luckily I haven’t chosen  the top plan!
