Still without internet connection 4 weeks after signing up

Level 1c

Signed up with TPG NBN 4 weeks ago and was billed for another 69, but so far, I haven't even started using the internet. Took slightly less than a week to activate my connection, another week to figure out what is wrong with the internet connection and more than 2 weeks to get NBNCo to fix the serial number mismatch. TPG customer support have been very polite throughout, but, eventually, all I ask is for my network to be up and running. So far, I've spent $105 to purchase addtional mobile data, and the longer I have to wait, the more I have to pay. That's a total of $174. Could you get me a bill adjustment?

Hi @Riezl, I've been looking through the forum and the internet regarding this issue. It seems like this issue isn't all that difficult to fix. All it takes is a database fix, you don't need eletricians or technicians to come down. It may just be another day at work for you, but, for me, every single day without the network, is a day I've to sustain my data usage with my mobile data. Purchasing extra data is very expensive. As a student, I don't have the luxury of cash to burn away. Honestly, I'm extremely desperate here. I understand this is NBN Co's issue, but, I would greatly appreciate if you can chase them to make this simple fix. If you need any more information from me, I'll gladly provide, otherwise, there is no need to call me. Just help me get it fixed, please.

I waited patiently since the last time I contacted you roughly 3 weeks ago, now, after being billed for another $69.99 and still unable to connect, I'm done waiting. Apparently, this mismatch of serial number issue isn't uncommon, so I contacted NBNCo on Facebook previously about this. They said I had to solve the issue through TPG and that this service is provided to TPG 24hours a day, 7days a week. Yet, after 2months and a total of $210 (3*$69.99) paid to you, there is still no progress. You have two more weeks before I contact the ombudsman. No one likes to keep paying for a service that isn't delivered.

 

Also, don't call me, instead, email me if you have updates or need more information.
