ADSL congestion issues



I'm facing a speed issue with my Internet connection for more than a month! The best speed I could get is 2mbps which is silly as I cant watch Internet TV clearly and cant have reliable download and video calls.

I contacted your technical team and they updated that I'm on a congestion line and this problem will be solved soon and that was 2 weeks ago. I live in wayville suburb which is pretty close to CBD so I really hope that my issue will be solved soon.


Kind regards,


Sid K.
