Level 1: Cadet


On Sunday the 15th April we lost our internet in Milsons Pt NSW. We were told it was a problem outside the building and would be remedied by 18th April, this did not happen. We were then told the internet would be back on on the 20th. This did not happen. On the 21st of April, the problem was solved. It was a problem within the building and all the Telstra staff had NO idea why we were told it was an external problem.  I received a TXT on the 23 April saying " your escalation is now under investigation by level 2 support. We will provide feedback as soon as possible???" As at today I have not heard a thing. Roll on the NBN so that I can change supplier. 

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help
