I recently applied for a new account with TPG and in doing so, was quite surprised at what happened. To understand what happened here, one must first understand the circumstances surrounding me. I'm liver tranplant recipient and I live in a Back Packer Lodge near the Hospital and I need good internet for video conferencing with specialists and Doctors and normal day to day activities like shopping, The owner of the building refuses to acknowledge my concerns about poor internet service, even though I pay for internet services inclusive in rent payments. Without going into the reasons why the landlord is not human, I applied for my own account with TPG and was refused because the landlord is a TPG account holder for the same address. NBN Co. can not provide me with a service unless my landlord fills in a Commercial Works/Application form and he's refused to do that. So I'm up the creek without a paddle. It's systematically wrong. I've tried other telco Co but here in lies the rub, I'm in a black spot, go figure, so the only way I can get decent internet service is to connect up to cable and that's 25m away, just sitting in the footpath. The kind of descriptive names I could label the owner of this building with is unlimited, but they are also unprintable. A word of advice, in this COVID-19 environment, living at the Backpacker/Student accommodation - English Lodge in Petersham 2049, is a not only uncomfortable it's unsafe and possibly dangerous.

My frustrations are your frustrations because I too play WOWS and have been playing for about 3mths but the last 4-5wks have been a living hell. When I first found the game I was as happy as a pig in a wallow, but TPG announced that they were doing some adjustments to my area and in doing so, have really destroyed any connectivity that I had with the Asian servers. It went from a solid connection to what it is now, which is I can hardly login to the server at all. I've realised that I can be connected to the game server at approx. 6.00am to 8.00am and if I'm lucky, I may be able to connect up around 1.30am to 3.00am. I've flushed my dns cacshe and I've literally reinvented my network/adapters and ipconfiguration but without any success. When I do connect up the pings are anywhere from 100ms - 4000ms with the entire screen shuddering and shaking and then the ping crashes to -35ms before the connection drops out. My fellow users,TPG is supposed to be the ducks nuts when it comes to internet connections, holly crap did we get shafted or what!!
