  • DamienHashemi Damien Hashemi (@DamienHashemi) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    *******!!! @Optus you should learn something from @ThreeUK when it comes to customer service. Had problems adding credit to my UK phone before a trip. I hardly use my phone but Three whacked on 5gb for free so I wouldn’t be stressed on arrival. Legends.

  • david_obrien David O'Brien (@david_obrien) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    I'd love for ISPs like #Optus to be more proactive around notifying customers. Monitor your network for issues, tell me if you find one. I'm much happier if you tell me about an issue than if I have to convince 1st level support that there is an outage in your network.

  • natatree Natatree (@natatree) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    So you can have a look at the moment and see if you can help me with the following on the email I sent you on the phone to optus for the first time in the morning and the email from the email address is correct.....

  • TheOnlyLongy Long Neck (@TheOnlyLongy) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @ktdenise @Optus Nope, we just got it installed and it was done instantly, my mate moved house with Optus, had same problem as you, changed supplier to Aussie and got it connected the next day.

  • TheOnlyLongy Long Neck (@TheOnlyLongy) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @ktdenise @Optus No, Aussie Broadband and Mate are by far better and have a lot better customer service.

  • teddytranscends Teddy Transcendent (@teddytranscends) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    Doing a name change with @Optus is possibly THE most humiliating of all name change experiences. I'm not a different person so please don't treat me as such.

  • SamShearer7 Sam Shearer (@SamShearer7) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @jewitt12 @pieman_78 Agree, is worth any slight drop in coverage. Online chat has always sorted any issues reasonably quickly as well. Recommend the Fetch box to get Optus Sport on to your box at home, is like $10 extra a month.

  • Nikkiwu8 mammashark23 (@Nikkiwu8) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus Your customers service is ridiculous!! I spoken with your staff on phone to book in NBN services on 16 April 2019. End up with no show, I called to find out I been told my appointment not been finalised!! They rescheduled me on 29 May 2019.!!

  • Nikkiwu8 mammashark23 (@Nikkiwu8) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus Your technician said I wasn’t home. I was home all morning. I did not hear any knock on my door. Not even a call or message to me. And again they rescheduled on 6 May 2019. What a customer service

  • _prkr Parker (@_prkr) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    Turns on data roaming and it connects to optus... settings>data>network> @Telstra 🙏🏻

  • Nikkiwu8 mammashark23 (@Nikkiwu8) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus Optus app service shows service unavailable!! Called to Optus put me on hold transfer me to other departments and call hung up. I want to get my Optus perks work!! This is not acceptable service!!

  • AGhostMachine 𝔾𝕙𝕠𝕤𝕥𝕀𝕟𝕋𝕙𝕖𝕄𝕒𝕔𝕙𝕚𝕟𝕖 (@AGhostMachine) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus Yup - bought some extra data and continued to use the Optus 4g to power my household. I will be sending the bill the way of Telstra if they ever try to resolved the issue :(

  • Nikkiwu8 mammashark23 (@Nikkiwu8) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus I am Optus customer and tried to book discounts HOYTS movie tickets. Website is not working

  • GregRandall1 TheWeed (@GregRandall1) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @JohnBirmingham @Telstra @Optus Oh I feel your pain. I had to organise internet with a fixed IP address for my Mum’s home security cams. She kept cancelling her internet account because “I don’t use that rubbish” and setting up new, costly phone accounts that involved cancel fees. #dayslost

  • monicasmeow Monicasmeow🐈 (@monicasmeow) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @mik_rosser @verbaliza That sort of makes no sense because it’s generally the gaining provider who would be at fault. So if you want to connect with Telco B for NBN it’s on Telco B. If Telco A (Optus) keep billing you that is different issue not necessarily connected to a new connection.

  • mikedoeslife Mike Stevens (@mikedoeslife) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    Turns out the fastest way to get service in a Telstra store is to walk in with an Optus bag in your hand

  • TeamBloomart Guy Incognito (@TeamBloomart) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @JohnBirmingham @Telstra @Optus I used to pay my dad's bigpond account (in his name, my cc direct debit deets). When he died I tried to cancel the account. Imagine how that went.

  • KoparaFallsKid Robyn D (@KoparaFallsKid) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Pamelanicholls6 @andrewofoz @JaneCaro @Telstra I do that too, using my phone as a hotspot. But that chews through the data allowance and they (in my case Optus) don't let you have extra phone data because the internet is down. They still charge $10 a Gb for extra usage over the monthly allowance.

  • mikedoeslife Mike Stevens (@mikedoeslife) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @_Michelangelo__ @Optus Now see, I had TPG a while ago and hated it. Terrible connectivity, terrible customer service, tech didn't show up when I took the day off to be home for him, then wouldn't cancel my account. So, yeah. They all suck.

  • elvinaMS elvina sindartha ♕ (@elvinaMS) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus your wifi sucks BIG TIME

  • Stephen02721621 Stephen (@Stephen02721621) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus @HuaweiMobileAU Try connecting me a fkn phone line - 1 month no phone - you guys suck so bad

  • themediapod Ross Monaghan (@themediapod) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @mjrowland68 @BreakfastNews I was getting faster speeds on the Optus cable network 15 years ago. NBN means slower and more expensive service in my area.

  • iDineshRoy Dinesh Kumar Roy (@iDineshRoy) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    Hello @Optus, I am at Osway St, Broadmeadows VIC. The internet is too slow. It has been slow for a long time.

  • StepmeisterOz Snickers (@StepmeisterOz) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    Well after 15 years it’s see ya @Optus & hello @Telstra I can’t believe in 2019 Optus cannot provide a 4G service in Prahran & they don’t have any plans to upgrade that black spot either. It baffles me. Oh well, a complaint to the TIO means I pay nothing to leave. #ByeFelicia

  • julianprice_ Julian Price (@julianprice_) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus, help! My nbn isn’t working. I’ve tried the old “off and on again” trick and I can’t see any outages in my area. Can’t get through to technical support “too busy”.

  • tiges_rule Susan Luber (@tiges_rule) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    Just when I thought @Optus was finally doing right by me their inept customer service staff had to go wreck everything again. Guess I’ll be changing mobile providers.

  • roadrunner83_ Roadrunner83 (@roadrunner83_) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @heart_explodes @Optus Sounds like the issue I had. Apart from the one text I didn't get anything... I find the best way is to be all to Optus over phone. Webchat nothing seems to be done

  • G1NCHY g1nchy 🌏 (@G1NCHY) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @jendudley You forgot to @Telstra and @NBN_Australia. I don't feel so bad now, at least @optus replied to my tweets.

  • jiawhoo cheah (@jiawhoo) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus hello 👋 why is it so hard to reach optus, called twice with no return calls:( I received my nbn & router yesterday morning but the nbn has been blinking the whole day. Need help!

  • corneliusJK Corné Kloppers (@corneliusJK) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus can you please help me activating my 4g plus modem i picked up this morning! Very frustrating as I would like to use it at home and get no response from technical support, phone or chat . Please help

  • TheNotoriousNJW 🅽 🅹 🆆 (@TheNotoriousNJW) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus This is still a major issue. At peak hours we get glacial speeds where even loading a Twitter feed is problematic. The coverage map is not correct for the area at the end of collins street in Melbourne around 750. Was never an issue before. Something has changed.

  • nonspecialist Colin Panisset (@nonspecialist) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @mipearson They had a cable outage at our place. My ticket got merged with someone else’s somehow, and I’ve spent the past 2 weeks telling Optus when they call me that they have the wrong number for a call I didn’t open. My issue did get resolved, but I bet that other customer is cranky

  • mattdarveniza Matt (@mattdarveniza) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @mipearson My Optus DSL has been dropping PPPoE auth and DNS once every couple of hours for the last few months and I haven’t tried to fix it because I know contacting Optus about it is such a ***********.

  • abcoathup Andrew B Coathup (@abcoathup) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus Mobile reception is poor. Will deal with it tomorrow.

  • abcoathup Andrew B Coathup (@abcoathup) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus Hi, I tried phoning 131344 to report from my mobile but the signal dropped out. Still no phone line or internet.

  • Paul_Coniglio Paul_In_Melb (@Paul_Coniglio) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @cooksey_ben @Optus Ben we are in 3195 and our cable net down too. Colleague in parkdale reporting no mobile phone coverage on Optus either in 3195.

  • tiges_rule Susan Luber (@tiges_rule) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus And I have spoken to nbnco themselves and they have confirmed that you are flat out lying to me. The times available depend on the provider NOT the nbn. Further proving how bad the customer service at Optus has been.

  • tiges_rule Susan Luber (@tiges_rule) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus has the worst customer service ever. I tried to organise nbn through their online chat and they flat out lied to me in order to get my business.

  • AdamTho88718953 Adam Thompson (@AdamTho88718953) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus thanks for waiting my afternoon so now a technician needs to come out cause AGAIN THE DAMN SERVICE DOES NOT WORK! And oh apparently my landline number has changed but AGAIN NO ONE FGGGGGKING TELLS YOU ANYTHING. Like my plan got changed and now my fggking landline FGGGGK!!!

  • AdamTho88718953 Adam Thompson (@AdamTho88718953) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus then i to top it off ever since my adsl2+, got changed I have had 6 drop outs this weekend lucky if it stays on for 1-2 hours this is a disgrace. Then I’ll end up on no bloody network which I’m guessing it will be WORSE.!!!!

  • AdamTho88718953 Adam Thompson (@AdamTho88718953) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus I really don’t know why we pay for this crap. Get screwed around during week and changed which I had to ring up because my internet wasn’t working, no one would have informed that my plan got changed or whatever.

  • timewaster2000 Mark Gambino 🗿 (@timewaster2000) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    It pays to shop around for @NBN_Australia products, even if you’re on contract. I may pay a cancellation fee to sever my @Optus ADSL service, but the zero install fee and lower monthly cost of another company will see me ~$50 better off over 24 months, plus enjoy faster speeds.

  • RandzyBirb Bird 🅱️⭕️ℹ️ (@RandzyBirb) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus your 4g home internet is shit, latency through the roof and super inconsistent. Plus your technical support is no help 😡😡😡😡

  • daamon_parker Daamon Parker (@daamon_parker) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @mark_barbs @iiNet Ditch them mate. I was on @iiNet and had loads of issues and was just met with bureaucratic “help”. Got nowhere - wasted my time. For the same monthly price with @Optus went from 2Mb/s (at best) to 30Mb/s consistently.

  • G1NCHY g1nchy 🗨️ (@G1NCHY) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    Hi Optus, where can I send my invoice to Optus for days lost, ADSL was meant to be transferred on the 18th Jan. ADSL connection was activated on 19th Feb. The connection has been running at 2mbs. An Optus technician was booked last week to check the line. They said the issue was

  • li_dpq li 🤷🏻‍♀️ (@li_dpq) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    Hoping our internet (@Optus) doesn't drop out. We're getting the PPV. Tried to contact tech support, nothing was really resolved. 🙌🏼

  • abhi_khandu एनोनिमस (@abhi_khandu) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    In the world where you can do almost anything with a touch off a button. I had to drop off from 30mins (4 times) waiting call on @Telstra @TelstraEnt. It's like #telstra penalize you for been their customer. #pathetic service #domo #optus #dodo

  • poonamjsamant POONAM (@poonamjsamant) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus every single time I travel.. I have issues with travel pack. Or with extra charges.. Or with international calling. Maybe it's time to change service to good old Telstra

  • xafarr Muhammad Zafar (@xafarr) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    Hey @Optus, I am trying to connect to your support chat for the past 2 days without success. It seems that you intentionally made extremely difficult to get to customer service #badcustomerservice

  • scousehelen helen drinoczky (@scousehelen) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @Optus 30 minutes wait on all lines, long wait too on 'live chat' then having to swap between several different departments and still cannot fix the issues. 😠

    @Aushiker @RGratton @Optus @madebygoogle I have been having issues with #Google #pixel3 I thought pixel3a may be better than pixel 3.

  • Aushiker 💧Aushiker (@Aushiker) reported

    @RGratton @Optus Seems to be a known issue with the latest Google Pixel 3A also experiencing similar problems. Given my phone was brought this year you would have thought @madebygoogle would have resolved the issue by now given it has been happening for some time.

  • RGratton (((Robbie Gratton))) ✊🏻🌹 (@RGratton) reported

    @Aushiker @Optus Because it’s an android 😂 In all seriousness, random shutdown issues in mobiles usually point to faulty ram... as a general rule.

  • julienoowen Julie 🌺 (@julienoowen) reported

    As a school teacher, I really rely on my wireless network to be able to do my lesson planning, print resources. Makes it very hard when I have to use my mobile data at home. @Optus

  • julienoowen Julie 🌺 (@julienoowen) reported

    An issue occurred in my street on Sat. Something happened to the power/internet line. Our downstream light has been flashing since. I called about it on Sunday and the operator said others were also offline. Still have not heard anything/been notified of it. Please help @Optus

  • 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 😡

  • DamienHashemi Damien Hashemi (@DamienHashemi) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    *******!!! @Optus you should learn something from @ThreeUK when it comes to customer service. Had problems adding credit to my UK phone before a trip. I hardly use my phone but Three whacked on 5gb for free so I wouldn’t be stressed on arrival. Legends.

  • nikivelkoska Niki Velkoska (@nikivelkoska) reported

    @Optus @LFCMelbourne @OptusSport Optus letting down fans yet again...*sigh* Passing on the interest doesn't mean shit. All they do is take from the fans, but I can't see them ever giving back.

  • grantontw Grant Sayer (@grantontw) reported

    @david_obrien @DavidGulli @Optus Interesting - I was getting about that speed but as of today recent SpeedTest showing 17.6Mbps - so it ain't so fast now, and just seems to keep getting worse Hoping that someone in OptusHQ is not playing with network configuration parameters
