  • SophiePearse Sophie Pearse (@SophiePearse) reported from Newcastle, State of New South Wales

    I’ve phoned @Optus customer service 3 days in a row and you’ve YET to rectify this issue, despite advising you have. This is incredibly poor form, deplorable in fact 😡

  • tmacca_1996 Thomas McKenna (@tmacca_1996) reported from Newcastle, State of New South Wales

    @Optus @7mate take your ads off appearing as every second one! I will never use your service due to this. Biggest pet peeve, waste of money on your marketing side #idiots #advertising

  • nickintheworld Nick Williams (@nickintheworld) reported from Newcastle, State of New South Wales

    @a_choros **** Telstra, marry Vodafone, kill Optus... Truth be told I’d prefer to kill Telstra while screaming **** you and have an ongoing FWB with Vodafone and just leave Optus alone

  • ajhill_alan Alan Hill (@ajhill_alan) reported from Newcastle, State of New South Wales

    @perthovalman @kevinperry @TheWorldGame @SBS @ALeague @premierleague @Craig_Foster @LucyZelic A cash-strapped FTA network does its best but has no hope of competing with Foxtel (itself scaling back football coverage in the face of its own financial woes) and Optus. I'd blame the government before pointing a finger at SBS.

  • ReetuMutti Reetu Mutti (@ReetuMutti) reported from Newcastle, State of New South Wales

    .@TPG_Telecom Trying to port my TPG no from TPG’s Optus to Vodaphone network. Spent countless hrs calling helpdesk every day, talked to supervisiors, waited days for engineers to investigate. Been waiting 20 DAYS, still not working. This is ridiculous. Fix this!!

Optus Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:

  • Jeremy_Kirk Jeremy Kirk (@Jeremy_Kirk) reported

    When Australia's @medibank insurer said on Monday it stopped the "precursors" to a ransomware attack, I didn't think it was going to turn into a hold-my-beer incident vis-à-vis the @Optus breach but unfortunately that's where we're at today. Just awful news. #auspol #infosec

  • Karina_Melbs PolarK_💉💉💉💉😷 (@Karina_Melbs) reported

    @chickensbees And the only reason I even knew is I got a ****** email from work saying I was avoiding calls. I've got nothing showing in missed calls and voicemail has never worked during DND (no idea why - think that's an optus thing).

  • IamAdnamana AdnamaNa (@IamAdnamana) reported

    @Optus Hi Optus, quick question - a year ago I chose auto recharge for my prepaid Optus mobile account but I stopped it because it recharged when my credit expired resulting in no data rollover. This was horrible, is this still the case?

  • bazmorganzx Baz (@bazmorganzx) reported

    at 7pm 7:05pm and 7:13pm my service has died @optus and this is only 3 times out of the entire day it went good and now is back to **** fix it!

  • julieptorres21 Juls Torres (@julieptorres21) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus The fault persists for more than 2 hours in the NBN service.

  • garden_naoms Garden Naoms (@garden_naoms) reported

    ...a couple of hang-ups from Optus, as well as some BS about "oh your account wasn't compromised", and "we see no record of you speaking to us about passport replacement due to the breach". Anyway, long story short, buddy lodged an official complaint which has 30 days to be.../?

  • BanksyInc Adam Banks (@BanksyInc) reported

    Thinking I might sell my personal data on the dark web. Considering my **** is getting leaked for free every other week. 3 for 3 - lucky me. Thanks @vinomofo @Optus @Medibank #blessed #OptusHack

  • ttdmg Tony (@ttdmg) reported

    The problem I see with the increase of hacking larger organisations is working from home. How many workers from home are using a device supplied by their employer with firewalls and secure connections? I'm not an IT expert but that would be red flags right there. #medibank #Optus

  • BibaWythes Beebs (@BibaWythes) reported

    Imagine if you were both a Medibank AND Optus customer right now 😬 #medibank #optus

  • JacMay19 Jac (@JacMay19) reported

    Day 2 of my @Optus saga. I just want to pay my bill. I can't use the app I'm shut out of. I can't use the link on the email without giving up more information to a system that is not working. UTTERLY RIDICULOUS.
