Hi. I pay for 50mbs and for more than 2 weeks I only have 15mbs. If you don't fix it I will not pay the next week. I spent last week more than 8 hours with you.Read

Hi @Fldan as a public forum unfortunately no one here has access to your account information. I would suggest if you haven’t yet to request that it is excavated as a complaint for you. In the message system if you say that you would like for it to be turned into an official complaint they will be able to escalate it for you otherwise you can try calling 132200 and say complaint but reaching them by phone may be difficult at the moment. I would suggest not just not paying the bill without going down the route of doing a complaint or dispute so that it doesn’t cause other potential problems.

I am doing the same. You cant talk to anyone on the phone and the mobile app is a circus. A simple problem takes days of repeating yourself as it just gets passed around. Nobody reads past messages and nobody wants to tackle any hard questions out of the box.

 

I joined telstra because of it's customer service. But that doesn't exist anymore.

The app is a circus. Getting to the point where all our business will shift to another supplier as customer service is non existent

I phoned the offices of Paul Fletcher the Federal MP in charge of Communications and spoke to a chap by the name of Luke.  He deals with NBN in the office.  If everyone phoned and complain and then emailed them perhaps we can get some action.  The fault is with NBN, Telstra are their client.  The phone number is (02) 9465 3950.

Hi,

As someone suggested above I logged a complaint via the chat system and, magic, they called me for a technician to attend. In a few days all was fixed, As I expected, it was a broken wire, just outside the house, due to the recent storms.

My trust in Telstra is all but gone. I don't know if it's NBN or Telstra fixing this issues, but I pay Telstra and cannot call NBN myself. The problem is Telstra not wanting to engage NBN (probably money wise) and hiring these guys in Philippines, Pakistan, India or wherever.  They are not even computer literate and all they do is to waste your time, maybe you give up. I spent at least 20 hour cumulatively over 3 weeks, just to be dismissed with "Let me transfer you to the concern team" and then nothing. I find it imposibile for Telstra not being aware of all this charade.

I hope this helps.
