Connection issues after moving house

Hello everybody as a first timer here I hope this is posted in the correct area and that we can get some answers/feedback.

Ok, we recently moved from one small town with FTTN and no connection issues or speed issues to another “larger” small town with FTTP already installed and just needing our Smart Modem and Telstra to reconnect us or so we thought. All the necessary information was passed on via a rep in a call centre who have then totally mishandled and double and triple booked our new connection called us numerous times telling us our connection has been made only to find it hasn’t been at all and offering extra “free” data as a way to calm or con not sure really. We spend literally hours each time this happens being told the issues will be resolved only to find that it will be “ another 5 to 10 working days” to be fixed or we need an NBN tech to visit when there is no problem with that side of things or that a visit has been booked for our previous address instead of the new address!!! As I write this my is almost at screaming volume talking to another lot of people in another call centre with no good news it seems. The whole experience since the 21/12/18 has left us wondering what the heck is happening at Telstra and we are about to cancel all Telstra plans and accounts. It is very frustrating and annoying that we pay top dollar for these things and cannot get good or any service 

It may be time to talk to the Communications Ombudsmen because of something as simple as turning off a service at one address and turning it back on at another!!!!
