If you haven't already suggest you lodge a complaint with Telstra. I have had several issues resolved after lodging a complaint. There is information on how to lodge a complaint at link below.

Re: Internet keeps dropping out

You could look at the times to see if there is a pattern- it could coincide with something.


Also, when you say that the internet is failing, how are you determining that?.

 If you are using a WiFi network to perform your check, the WiFi signal itself could be implicated.


It could help to run speed tests at the times in question and record the results.
