Thank you for having this escalated and for having my service installed within the time frame the sales person told me when I signed up for the TPG FTTB service. I can happily confirm that my service was installed yesterday and everything is working well. Thanks again for having this installed within the timeframe I was promised.

I have been an Optus customer for nearly 2 decades and after a 9 week NBN installation saga I decided today was the day to move to someone new. I just signed up over the phone for a TPG FTTB service because I was told by the sales person that it would be installed within 3-4 working days and faster than an NBN service. Sounded too good to be true but I was assured by the TPG sales person that it would take 24-48hr for the technician to do the connection (and not required to be home UNLESS my building manager needed to give permission. They do not as others have TPG installed in the building) and 1-2 days to receive my modem so all installed ready to use within 3-4 days. And told that the 90mbps speed was guaranteed. Yes, it sounded incorrect to declare 'guaranteed' but the sales guy stuck to his story when I pressed him on this. Then I receive the email with the documentation stating: 10-20 working days, a booking required with a technician and I'd need to be home for the technician too. Then I call to cancel my contract (the ink hasn't even dried on the contract) as I was given wrong information about delivery and what was required for installation but told I am up for the full cancelation fee! Talk about being cohersed into a contract. I will definitely be taking this up with the ombudsman and telling everyone I can about TPG's 'sales techniques'. Oh yeah, I made a new call to their sales department to just check if I had been given wrong advice or they all told the same story. The new sales guy gave the correct information as per the documentation I was emailed (10-20 working days) BUT said that if TPG was installed in my building that he was told in training that no other supplier could supply me and I would have to take a service from TPG. OMG!!!!!!! Do you have any sales people who tell the truth???? Buyer beware!
