  • BobTheB77658931 Bob The Builder (@BobTheB77658931) reported

    @chrismurphys @Telstra Have used Internode since from soon after they started and have had very few issues with them.

  • piet_jason JP 1977 (@piet_jason) reported

    @Telstra Your wait time for a phone call re service issues says 3 minutes...I’m 40 minutes in and still on hold. Utter rubbish service.

  • Naighnay Naigh (@Naighnay) reported

    @NetballScoop I understand a price increase SSN is brilliant and undervalued but this is a terrible way to do it. With no notice in the off season. People will cancel their subscriptions especially as there's no new content as incentive to continue it. Feel lucky to be a Telstra customer.

  • EconoGarry EconoGaraidh (@EconoGarry) reported

    @chrismurphys @Telstra I use Optus mobile broadband. A year with no problems. Faster download than nbn. Slower upload but who cares. Their webmail is not to be recommended though.

  • larajay66 Open your eyes (@larajay66) reported

    @chrismurphys @Telstra We have been with westnet (iiNet now) for 23 years! In that time the most we have ever been out is 3 days when my brothers stupid workmate dug up the cable that goes across the Nullarbor!

  • skelly_damian Damian Skelly (@skelly_damian) reported

    @bkbaguley @chrismurphys @Telstra Same, haven’t had any issues with Vodafone

  • vivzilla Viv (@vivzilla) reported

    @NetballScoop I’m a telstra customer so nothing changes for me thank god. Feel bad for everyone else though

  • lg_smart_skylxr skyler (christmas c:) 🏺 (@lg_smart_skylxr) reported

    @tirs_is_cursed i just bloody stroke!! (serious)(sad)(**** telstra)

  • elldeelosang Lesley Dimmock (@elldeelosang) reported

    @chrismurphys @Telstra Been with iiNet for years and can't complain. Few problems and soon fixed when they do occur


    @J0NSEY_ @AusGirlGunner I didn’t have internet all yesterday because Telstra and Optus were down in my area

  • cooliestevo73 Coolangatta_Bulldog (@cooliestevo73) reported

    @Qldstew @Telstra Mate I work in Emergency I’ve seen people come in with chest pain after dealing with Telstra! And that’s no bullshit!

  • gdenham3 Gary Denham (@gdenham3) reported

    After over 20 years with @Telstra I found myself forced to find another provider. It's a shame because I love their network. My last bill had an $80 charge on it that had never appeared before. I called them to enquire what the charge was and I was directed to a live chat session

  • Chabi__101 Lachlan Chabi (@Chabi__101) reported

    @Telstra are the Theodore, ACT servers down? I have no home phone or wifi?

  • annieexcuse Anne S. (@annieexcuse) reported

    @NetballScoop My mobile is with Telstra so I am assuming I will still get it for free? Had never actually researched prices at all as I was just lucky.

  • JamieMirror James ‘Rodríguez’ Ferguson (@JamieMirror) reported from Sydney, State of New South Wales

    @Telstra Thanks cas. I’ve been trying the online help but after the first automated response there was nothing in reply. Is there a number to call as the internet isn’t working sufficiently to complete the steps required. Thanks

  • sydney_ev 🔋SydEV #FSDBetaAU #FSDBetaOZ (@sydney_ev) reported

    @chrismurphys @Telstra Sounds like typical @telstra over subscription. Did it in our suburb, means it can never be fixed unless they cut customers. And that won’t happen

  • Leonine111 Lionel Bopage (@Leonine111) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @chrismurphys @Telstra It is rather an issue of the broadband system Malcolm Turnbull and the followers ruined.

  • JaneenJericho1 Janeen Jericho (@JaneenJericho1) reported

    @CathyPaterson16 @Telstra Type Minnipa in and you'll see an outage but the map shows Poochera/Cungena - still not helpful with no ETR and the 24/7 messaging app is useless.

  • maxmgfc Maximus (@maxmgfc) reported

    Beware that Google and Telstra make it almost impossible to cancel App subscriptions!!!

  • politico_pup Fire of democracy still burns (@politico_pup) reported

    @chrismurphys @Telstra The telecommunications ombudsman. When I have problems, my telco gets one chance to fix it and then straight to Mr O. The telco is then on a clock to resolve it and gets escalating fines if they don’t. Suddenly, they can’t be more helpful!

  • madeline1957 Marion Clarke (@madeline1957) reported

    @chrismurphys @Telstra I use Mint Telecom. They are Tasmanian based and speak perfect English and I’ve never ever had a problem with them. Mention my name and we will both get a $50 discount on the first a/c.

  • twensor twensor (@twensor) reported

    @rubin_angela Dealing with Telstra to solve a problem makes Orwell's Room 101 read like a teddy bear's picnic. It appears to be deliberately engineered to annoy the clackers out of it's customers. A once great public service organisation (Telecom) is now just another psychopathic corporation.

  • Qldstew Bat’s (@Qldstew) reported from Tweed Heads, State of New South Wales

    @Telstra help please

  • clairperkins80 Clair Perkins (@clairperkins80) reported

    @NetballScoop Telstra customer so doesn't affect me at the moment but I'm furious about rise & sneakiness. If not Telstra cust I would unsubscribe, can't justify paying more than Netflix. If I still lived in the UK I'd probably find a way to pay it as couldn't watch the matches any other way

  • ReddasSean Sean Redmond (@ReddasSean) reported

    Why is it so hard for your business to resolve simple problems? Do you want all of your customer base gone this messaging app is seriously inducing mental rage. I cannot believe how pathetic your support has become. #Mentalhealth @Telstra

  • BenjaminRoy73 Benjamin Reynolds (@BenjaminRoy73) reported

    @chrismurphys @Telstra I have used iprimus twice now and have rarely had issues.

  • TrevTrevor Rex Hateley ✊ 🥁 (@TrevTrevor) reported

    @chrismurphys @Telstra Some people complain about Optus but we have reliable service. Rarely an issue.

  • JamieMirror James ‘Rodríguez’ Ferguson (@JamieMirror) reported

    @Telstra Hi Angela. Apologies I had to get my dad to login to the app. Seems that none of the troubleshooting was working and he sent a message via the app. Are we able to organise a technician ASAP, please? Appreciate the help

  • FrenWasTooShort fren (level 3) (@FrenWasTooShort) reported

    @lg_smart_skylxr @tirs_is_cursed STOP SAYING **** TELSTRA HOLY ****
