Below, is a loose copy of my entries this evening on a Telstra Feedback request from a Michael Ackland, bless him.
'Telemarketing Callers' are not considered in a favourable light in our home. Particularly now, as we feel we have recently been duped by a Telstra 'Tele Sales' person who coerced us to reduce our perfectly satisfactory Telstra/NBN 120Gb per month contract, down to a mysterious figure that found us being penalised by a miserable 256kbps throttled speed, 6 DAYS BEFORE our monthly bill was due!!! Where are the details for a Telstra/NBN 25Gb per month plan to be found on the Telstra website!? At the same time, this sales person also coerced us into purchasing a Samsung SM-T385 Tablet/Phone which now appears to have a known manufacturing fault inside it! No LED's to iluminate the on screen return & cache buttons. To add insult to all this injury, our mobile phone that was also included in our original 120Gb monthly plan, has had the original 2Gb data allowance rocketed up to 35Gb, which we are never likely to use more than 1.75Gb of anyway! All the above issues and then we are being asked how likely are we to recommend Telstra to a friend or colleague? Oh, and by the way, we used to have a 'Speed Boost' on our Telstra/NBN FTTB, which we were then recommended to discontinue at our new abode here, as we only have FTTN and copper from there to our home, 750 meters away! The last straw about all this nonsense was the arrival of a Telstra gift in the form of a 'Google Home Mini' which has now been re-boxed, so that we can give it away to someone who can tolerate the constant interruptions to normal conversation between two enamoured humans. Once we eventually got to the 'Finale' of filling in the Telstra feedback form, one got greeted with....
GIVE US A CALL Thank you. Please give us a call on the following number.
Home Phone Faults 132 203................................... We don't have a problem with it. Internet (ADSL and CABLE) Faults 133 933.............. We don't have a problem with it. NBN Faults 1800 834 273 , option 3 ....................... NBN TV ad says contact your ISP. Mobiles 125 111.................................................... We don't have a problem with it. Sales and Billing 132 200 ...................................... Them calling us would be nicer
So this all means we now have to make 5 phone calls (no doubt to ATAM's with the obligatory time wasting button pressing and being subjected to ghastly haggered/distorted musical noises) which hopefully, will then get us back to the loving relationship we once enjoyed with Telstra. For all the years we have been with them thus far, I'm hoping this is not the beginning of the end. Let's just see how long it takes for me to come back in here and tell you all how wonderful Telstra is at resolving our current discord with their 'Tele-Sales' shenanigans.
Solved! Go to Solution.
