    Dear @Optus I can’t do my job with slow internet

  • CognitiveVerb 💧cognitive verb (@CognitiveVerb) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @annkozma723 @OlivierElzingre @steven_kolber I suspect it was an internet service provider problem. @Flipgrid grid is pretty hungry and @Optus was not playing fair.

  • BlackwellJ_ James Blackwell (@BlackwellJ_) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    My 2nd days-long internet outage in a week with @Optus — and they can’t/won’t send a technician out until Tuesday...

  • jimmcslim James Webster (@jimmcslim) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    Nothing like being stuck on the @TransLinkSEQ flying junction into Bowen Hills, where the @Optus coverage sucks…

  • blake_andersson Gerimima StFrostfirst (@blake_andersson) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @lukeacl @halftimbered @tuppaware @BeauGiles @AppleMusic @Mardukian @twistieman FWIW I’m on Optus (don’t hate me) and I have zero issues like what’s been described ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • GlenNixon Glen Nixon (@GlenNixon) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    From the evidence I have to conclude that @Optus don’t have anyone working in a call centre. They just play music at you until you give up. #service

  • DaveCox92490089 womble (@DaveCox92490089) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @sydney_ev @anirbanmahanti Optus is not much better shit all round.

  • lesposen lesposen (@lesposen) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Optus I’m on phone support currently. The question is about remotely rebooting my modem when away, it drops connection 2xweekly

  • Tur71e Brett Turville (@Tur71e) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Braxeoswow @Optus I’d like to know the answer to that same question @Optus I call and then told the system to check is down. Pathetic service. This happens all the time in inner north Brisbane.

  • JoelTHFC Joel (@JoelTHFC) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Daniel__Nash Haha Optus rotate presenters every four hours, sometimes 2. Hang in there bud!

  • Daniel__Nash Daniel (@Daniel__Nash) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Optus hello, we got a new plan yesterday and the sim is not yet activated. Not in store, not later as told, not thanks to the online chat agent today, and I can't find the way to do it. Kinda need to be able to use the phone... please help.

  • MKWAnthony V2★Anтнøny (@MKWAnthony) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    Currently having a blackout and my 4G is garbage at best. Optus letting me down like most people in my life lol

  • michelle_author Michelle Worthington (@michelle_author) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Optus DM sent. I’m not sure you can help. I was simply told I should have read my contract better.

  • JaseSmith78 Jase Smith (@JaseSmith78) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @GaryNunn1 Aldi mobile uses the Telstra network without the Telstra price... but not sure if it supports things like multi devices or Apple Watch - I put my husband on $35 Optus plan (plus $15 to link iPad and the watch was free for the first year) with 30gb

  • debmberger Deb Berger (@debmberger) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Optus Thank you. It’s a pity your chat help couldn’t check this. Or at least advise me to look at it. I was asked to reset my phone, remove my SIM card, change various settings. Each of these solutions were suggested multiple times despite advising none of them corrected the issue.

  • davidjfindlay David Findlay (@davidjfindlay) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    Good work @Optus I recommended you to my father, but after buying a SIM he’s spent hours failing to get it activated via your automated customer anti-service system which is apparently designed to thwart victims from getting to speak to a person. Never recommending you again.

  • gb7004 greg bradley (@gb7004) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    Dear @Optus you are a disgrace, cancel my ADSL as I am signed up to NBN well I would be but still waiting for a modem from you from 10th Oct, rang help desk and Annika CB690949 was going to ring me back in 10/15 minutes 40 minutes.

  • david_odonoghoe David O'Donoghoe (@david_odonoghoe) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    dearest @optus , I phoned you, and asked to be put through to the customer retention team. So far, I have been transferred 4 times, and am now on hold.. after being told that the wait time will be 15 minutes. #optus

  • parslow77 Lliam Parslow (@parslow77) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    Watching Liverpool this morning on Optus Miss 12 walks down the hall waking from her slumber and spots the Nike Ad. “Look Dad!, it’s @samkerr1!!”

  • gb7004 greg bradley (@gb7004) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Optus Dear @Optus I havre tried and spent over 15 hours trying to sort this out, including your ‘help’ desk which does nothing, as you can see from the images all you people do is lie

  • LesStonehouse Politic@l Spinner (@LesStonehouse) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @FearbySoftware Optus for over 20 years.. Never had a problem.. Fingers crossed

  • DanielBox87 Daniel Box 🇬🇧🇦🇺 (@DanielBox87) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @falmouth_wolf Im watching on optus sport, they're just as biased towards city. Never get any credit do little old #wolves

  • GregStonham GregStonham (@GregStonham) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @cathywilcox1 @Optus I hope they're a having a good hard look at themselves after loosing my phone 18 days ago, and refusing me a loan phone, refusing to suspend my network access charges and refusing to replace the original handset, which was still under warranty

  • LemStar71 Lema Niumata Noel (@LemStar71) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    I’m so disappointed with your service tonight @Optus, chatted with 3 people who disconnected on me 3 times, I just called & the guy said he cldn’t access my details to call back in 2hrs. We haven’t been able to get connection. #nothappy

  • AlexJSmithy Alex Smith (@AlexJSmithy) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Telstra It has a yargi rooftop antenna. Installer says the issue is alignment of distant cells and jumping from one to other and dropping out. Have 4 bars on Optus.

  • AlexJSmithy Alex Smith (@AlexJSmithy) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Telstra Matthew, thanks for the offer but @Telstra mobile coverage is so poor at my house that extra data is not much use. In fact I have to rely on wificalling to use the mobile. Fortunately our other mobiles are on @Optus which has great coverage.

  • mycrouch Jason Crouch (@mycrouch) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Optus Bit hit and miss. If I turn airplane mode on and off it reconnects just fine. I’ve also reset my phones network settings. It’s happened a couple of times today. I’ll monitor it.

  • WhiplashUnited Mickey Dee (@WhiplashUnited) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    Can’t even watch a five minute video because .@optus is useless. Worse still it’s NBN.I pay $85 month for a failing service. Rort.

  • brandonlung_ brandon (@brandonlung_) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @lavosaurus Oh shit that’s decent! A while back I saw Optus doing a specia that was $40 for 80gb, so that’s what I’m realllly hoping for eventually. Also just realised my plan ends in October so your way might be able to happen sooner than later haha

  • brandonlung_ brandon (@brandonlung_) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @lavosaurus Ooh that’s sick! Someone told me to complain about my wifi being shit (Optus as well) and they’ll give me free stuff, so maybe I do both and get all the benefits haha

  • samf_66 Sam (@samf_66) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @NBN_Australia The problem is the techs that are sent won’t check the connection on the street. They change something internally for no good reason and report back that the fault is fixed which it is not. I go back to @Optus and the same process happens again.

  • WhiplashUnited Mickey Dee (@WhiplashUnited) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Optus even when you send a new modem I have the same problems. This is just getting ridiculous now.

  • samf_66 Sam (@samf_66) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @NBN_Australia @Optus NBN HFC 6 weeks of daily multiple dropouts. 4 NBN tech visits + 1 Optus & the issue is still not resolved. Optus modem replaced, NTD replaced, F-connectors replaced but tech not permitted to check the connection on the street. Farcical!

  • hillyshoist Hilly73 (@hillyshoist) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    If your after some useless customer support look no further than #Apple and #optus another cracked screen and no assistance. Looks like #telstra and #Samsung will be the winners here

  • Tur71e Brett Turville (@Tur71e) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Optus my 4G broadband at #stafford is so bad. Either that or the @Huawei modem. Not an isolated event. Really question the advertising around super fast 4g. Every night a snail pace speed. #nbn #broadband #nombps #slowinternet

  • Dr_Xiang_Li Xiang Li 李翔 (@Dr_Xiang_Li) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @martinalexsmith @TWBredy Jealous,locked in for another 6 month with this optus ADSL service...

  • Dr_Xiang_Li Xiang Li 李翔 (@Dr_Xiang_Li) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @TWBredy @martinalexsmith ...... OPTUS so slow

  • LesStonehouse Politic@l Spinner (@LesStonehouse) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Telstra @Optus.. Please help my darling wife I miss her 😢 #auspol #NBN

  • neilmaddo10 Neil Maddison (@neilmaddo10) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    Trying to get hooked up to @Optus nbn... Monday they said, now it won’t be. Ready for two weeks of arguing like last time. Customer service is not at all important to them.

  • Better4Brisbane @Better4Brisbane (@Better4Brisbane) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Optus Thanks but your service has been awful. What you could do is not sell people in West End/Toowong postcodes your data products when you KNOW your infrastructure in the area is at capacity with speeds below 2MBps. I got speeds 10x faster in Bali. @Optus @telstra

  • MCooperAus Michael Cooper (@MCooperAus) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @NBN_Australia leasing @Telstra copper with @Optus as a retailer is a perfect example of how three providers is not better than one. A lot of 👉👈 finger pointing as to who has the issue all the while the customer (me) with awful internet....#sortitout

  • CrayonANZ Dave Holmes 🇦🇺🇬🇧 (@CrayonANZ) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @zyzzyvamedia @Optus Been with @Internode on NBN for two years, never down, always fast. I guess it is some ISP and some location.

  • cat_spalding Cat Spalding (@cat_spalding) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Optus have the worst onboarding customer experience. Email says order on way, online system says still processing. Online rep tells me order is being delivered... today, while I'm at work & can't sign for it. Rep blamed @startrack for mistake when clearly a system issue.

  • paypontAU Paypont (@paypontAU) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Optus Left an SMS with your call centre agent 8 hours ago. Still waiting, service is not active.

  • paypontAU Paypont (@paypontAU) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @wardenofmyheart @Optus There’s no explanation as what caused the issue, what percentage of customers are still affected. Optus are not sharing the full story on this.

  • neilmaddo10 Neil Maddison (@neilmaddo10) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Optus @Optus service is going down... must be a World Cup soon.

  • JanelsaOuma Janelsa Ouma (@JanelsaOuma) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    Cannot wait to cancel my @Optus wifi contract. For real hotspotting my phone because the wifi cannot handle two laptops using it at the same time. Bye👋

  • paypontAU Paypont (@paypontAU) reported from Brisbane, State of Queensland

    @Optus Our mobile broadband service is still down. More than 24 hours now.... says connected to Optus 4G but cannot browse any websites - local or overseas. Have power recycled - no improvements. Rang your call centre - on hold for 80 mins before giving up.

  • mimpix Mimpix (@mimpix) reported

    @Optus Thats white lie. For 5 days the internet service has been disrupted and no one is bothered at Optus. When called to report the genius at optus classified the problem as "No dial Tone on Phone" whereas actually I was calling from the phone.

  • Big_Chapi Undisputed Chapo Bay Bay (@Big_Chapi) reported

    Optus has shit the bed again

  • Optus Optus (@Optus) reported

    @hrambanis Hi Spiz, I'm sorry to hear you're having some issues watching some content on Optus Sport. Can you please send us through a DM with your Optus Sport email and what device you're trying to watch the Mini Matches on and we'll further assist you there. George

  • AzzyChill Azzy Less Than Chilled (@AzzyChill) reported from Sydney, State of New South Wales

    Great, my @Optus network just cut out now only HSDPA works

  • _maddie_ maddie (@_maddie_) reported

    @leachitup I love travelling interstate for footy. I mean, I’ve never really had much of a choice with North 😂 but have done a few interstate trips for other teams too. I’ve done most of the main stadiums at this point. Optus Stadium is next on my list but I’m scared. 😭😂

  • mrtimotheos Mr Timotheos (@mrtimotheos) reported

    Are you having problems @Optus because my internet has been cutting in and out and slow for the last week...

  • Schoey0 schoey_05 (@Schoey0) reported

    @Optus i would enter but my optus internet connection is way too slow for this shit. **** you

  • t0mee6 t0mee (@t0mee6) reported

    @j_ayshun @Telstra Even Optus has been bad for me the past few days, no internet this morning and out for a full day Thursday

  • rompa69 Mark Wayland (@rompa69) reported

    Well, after a year or so without any major issues we’ve been “forced” to move from Optus cable to NBN (Optus) due to deprecation of service. The NBN is, well, totally unstable in comparison. The physical connection hasn’t changed, this thing goes offline several times a week :-(

  • civilengineer civilengineer (@civilengineer) reported

    @spalliera @Trish_Corry @AusIndiMedia Spare a thought for the "NBN by Fixed Wireless" users such as me. Speeds typically 4 - 8 up and 4 - 5 down. Improved for a while when Optus moved me to the next higher band (50mbps down) at no cost, only to revert as soon as NBN deleted that option. Not happy.
