FTTB - Apartment Tower Building Missing

SOLVED Go to solution
Level 2

Hi All!


I have a tricky one and need some advice.


12 months ago I moved into an apartment (Building A - Street X) in West Perth. As NBN is a while away from being available in this area I signed up for ADSL with another provider. When the technician was connecting up the service he commented and showed me the TPG FTTB box active in the MDF room which inside the main apartment tower (Building B - Street Y).


Building A - No FTTB Available

Building B - FTTB Available


These building are connected with the same strata and comms room, but they have different street frontages. I tried to explain to TPG that it is the same complex and all the comms run out of the same MDF room but my issue was never resolved as on their system it is not available from my address.


It looks like when the TPG installed the FTTB to the complex they forgot to activate Building A.


Any ideas on how I can raise this issue with TPG? I went through the process about 11 months ago and it didn't go anywhere, is there a better contact than the customer service?
