Impossible to lodge a fault

My broadband has not worked since fri 24/3

I called to lodge a fault on 24/3 and was told someone would call back on 25/3

no one called, I called back on 26/3 and was told someone would call back on 27/3 - no one called.

I called and have just spend 1.5 hours on hold waiting to lodge a complaint - I couldnt hold on any longer

Is this the new Telstra strategy - to not recevie compaints?

What are my options except to complain to the telecommunications ombudsman and change service providers?

On the website they promise to get in touch within 2 businness days and if urgent to ring 132200 and say "complaint"


"When you email us we'll be in touch within 2 business days to either resolve your issue or set out our action plan for resolving it.
