  • sandraom Sandra O'Malley (@sandraom) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    Way to wreck a Sunday, try to contact @Optus to fix their substandard offering.

  • sandraom Sandra O'Malley (@sandraom) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    @yodaberg @Optus I’ve had alot of problems with them lately & the only thing that worked was going into a store. Chat is probably the next most helpful & you can get a transcript of what they’ve promised to action.

  • Tikkaspecial Steve Smith (@Tikkaspecial) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    @Optus NBN down this morning. Website reports no issues at 2911.

  • P_Glo Phoebe #Raiders4Life (@P_Glo) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    @RedFiddler Yep pretty good deal. Don’t have too many problems with them. Partner is with Optus and does nothing but complain.

  • JayJayK75 50ShadesofJay (@JayJayK75) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    @allaningleton @Optus Surely someone working there would see how completely stupid that is and take it back, complete crooks mate, phone company’s these days are a nightmare to deal with

  • KBGoodness 🥃 KB 🥃🎮🍜 (@KBGoodness) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    @Haydztweets @Jacko_GFreak @Telstra @Optus @iiNet Well no, some POIs have a higher capacity then others and it comes down to if they can actually support the speeds. If you're on a POI that is at almost capacity then the chances of getting higher speeds are limited, which is why people hit that 7pm slowdown.

  • sweetgilly Gillian Smith (@sweetgilly) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    @Optus Not sure if I’ll get a resolution from @Optus I sent a dm

  • refjess Jess the Referee (@refjess) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    @NJGalea @Optus I had so many problems with them when I signed up. Never again. I'll take my chances with the clowns at Telstra rather than this mob again.

  • Colincopeland2 Col Copeland (@Colincopeland2) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    @Optus is there any problems with the network in the ACT. Its very, very slow tonight

  • JesMullins Jessicah Mullins (@JesMullins) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    A week later and still no resolution. Just infuriating comments from people on the Optus messaging service who have clearly not read the case notes. @Optus you need to fix this…

  • stillupsocut Andy Marsh (@stillupsocut) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    @Optus I had two wireless broadband plans and as soon as I terminate one my speeds slow to under 1mb/s. Been two weeks with no solution from your tech support.

  • voroguecp Jamien Rees (@voroguecp) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    You just have to love @Optus. 2nd time in a few months they have cancelled our work email. Whole account system is attached to it. No warning. Just cancelled. Thousands of dollars at a stake. Service response, ‘nothing we can do’.

  • Fabulous_Red Leon Ha (@Fabulous_Red) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    I do hope that @Optus will match 1:1 the amount of data #Optus customers have donated generously this #Christmas to help drive positive changes in our community. LH

  • AusLoafer Marko (@AusLoafer) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    Damn it seems George didn't lose the ******** shades at Optus Stadium... #Masterchefau

  • sweetgilly Gillian Smith (@sweetgilly) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    Well @Optus no service after act storms last night…what are you doing about it?!

  • mariekringxx ♛Ƙring (@mariekringxx) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    hello @Optus i am network-less atm what happened

  • TimShawTweets Tim Shaw (@TimShawTweets) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    @Optus get your f#cking sh#t together and fix digital access in #FranklinACT right now unless you want a whole world of media pain directed your way real soon. Namaste @TimShawTweets @2CC

  • AmandaWorldwide Amanda Valentina💋 (@AmandaWorldwide) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    Nothing like spending your spare time in an @Optus store because the customer service call centre are so inefficient & haven’t cancelled two numbers, one dating back to October 2017, despite being asked to on more than 2 occasions. $120 p/m charges need to be reimbursed, too.

  • GGL_Drew Andrew Christian (@GGL_Drew) reported from Queanbeyan, State of New South Wales

    Just spoke with family in Tuross Heads. Tuross is unaffected apart from smoke. Connectivity available on the Telstra network (but not optus). Power just turned on at 2am this morning. Water is on and working. #SouthCoastFires #BushfireEmergency #tuross

  • sandraom Sandra O'Malley (@sandraom) reported from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    @Optus I cancelled my Optus adsl connection at the end of January after significant problems and more than a week without service & now I’ve had my previous direct debit used to take funds out on 17 February. There is no end to the terrible service by optus.

Optus Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:

  • charlietech Charlie (@charlietech) reported

    Former @Optus customer that left after 2017. No email or sms yet. I am also a customer of 3 different Optus MVNOs but they are not impacted.

  • Granville4879 💉💉💉💉 Granville in FNQ 😷 (@Granville4879) reported

    @Neopseudo And, I'm guessing, Optus is in the top five in providing secure customer service?

  • gachetbietdi Duc Tien Tran (@gachetbietdi) reported

    @Stone2541 @Optus @ARealJourno If you don't use the email Optus provides and use free mail service like Gmail or Hotmail,then you pretty much on your own.

  • betheworrall bethworrall 🇺🇦 (@betheworrall) reported

    @kcarruthers @Optus I'm no expert but here's how I'd manage this 1. Provide a genuine apology 2. Establish a dedicated customer support team office - with dedicated comms - ASAP 3. Never pass blame on a single individual - make an early commitment to overhauling culture on privacy

  • leighbentley 💧 Leigh Bentley (@leighbentley) reported

    @StephenJonesMP It's a bit late now...the data is out there. Cancelling my Optus service is pointless. Someone/everyone on the dark web knows my name, home address, email, mobile phone number etc etc Do I have to sell my house now to avoid my identity being stolen?

  • troyhunt Troy Hunt (@troyhunt) reported

    We also should ask why Optus needed to acquire *and* retain identity data of this nature in the first place. To get a SIM card? Sure, but then why the long term retention of that data once identity has been established? Was it worth the problem we now have?

  • jodiehastweeted Jodie (@jodiehastweeted) reported

    @LordSoth123 I can’t even delete mine. I’ve tried. It just gives me an error message. And no one at @Optus can help me apparently…!!!! The way they are handling all of this is disgraceful.

  • terry_legg 💧Terry Legg 🌏🌱🐀 (@terry_legg) reported

    @SandyHorne61 see if Optus hired these, they would not have lost customer data, either

  • iamjinaldagli Jinal Dagli (@iamjinaldagli) reported

    @Optus hey Optus I am unable to get through your call center to move service. Therefore I have decided to deactivate the service. Agents put us on hold randomly and disconnect. This is frustrating

  • becjh_35 Bec 🏴🏳️🏴 (@becjh_35) reported

    So @VicRoads are you accepting driver licence cancellations and re-issues for those affected by the @optus data breach?
