    damn. the newest @telstra Pre-Paid Max plans look even better than ever. still, the only thing holding me back is roaming data for when i go over to the UK. other than that, it's sooooo tempting to swap to this plan.

    @Telstra please update your outage information. Troubleshooting tells me outage was resolved at 6pm 16/11 but nearly 24hrs later still no working internet. Can’t work!!!

    @DRAGON_STORM_4 @Tyr0din @Telstra Unfortunately telstra have the monopoly and in many areas there is literally no other option than telstra. Where telstra is good they are awesome, but when they're bad they're awful but often the only ones available.

    Let’s hope @Telstra engages @Visionstream_ or another contractor to prepare an application for a tower in our area. We have great access & flat sites 👍 The rural community is pleading with Telstra to PLEASE help us. @andy_penn @NSWFarmers #johnhewitt #michaelmarom #janetbarnes

    @Tyr0din @Telstra lol, that's why I never use Telstra. They don't help at all. My mom used to have a internet plan with them and over time they started to increase her bill for no reason, and they wouldn't say why. So she dipped out of their plan. Then they apparently blacklisted her.

    @Tyr0din @Telstra It's honestly ridiculous that you've had to put up with this for so long and still nothing has been done to help. I hope you're able to figure something out soon, keep your chin up x

  • Tyr0din
    Tyrodin (@Tyr0din) reported

    Alright @Telstra , I give up. I'm in the shittest state I've been in since I started using your service. I can't even get online with the nighthawk modem anymore. I'm done, as I've exhausted all my options with you & everytime I call someone I get redirected & nothing happens. GG

    @Telstra Hi Dan, I have power cycled both hardware devices (smart modem & cable adaptor) several times and also the connected PC. Have spoken to someone on LiveChat and they have lodged a ticket. Strange coincidence to have cable maintenance one day and then a broken connection the next.

  • kamasz_stefan
    Stefan Kamasz (@kamasz_stefan) reported from Sydney, State of New South Wales

    @Telstra Appreciate your help Tom but the issue is afaiac NBN/Telstra’s - maybe connection to the building - not where my modem is located etc. I’m sitting right next to it. Looks like I have to waste more of my time with your technicians. Not your fault but it’s not good enough. Thanks.

    @michaelebeid @TelstraEnt @Equinix @carsales Man, have you got your work cut out with @telstra! Used to take 15mins for mobile number to switch SIMs when phone got lost. After ‘reorganization’ telstra gave given themselves 5DAYS SLA to port to new SIM, that’s corporate grade service too! unbelivable, but true.

    @Telstra Sorry for bad mouthing your company. There was no reason because we don't have Telstra. The internet is actually HUAWEI. Again, I apologise.

    @Larawithabird I usually just get SIM cards from service providers at the country I go to, it’s way cheaper than getting ripped off by Optus/Vodafone/Telstra data packs.

    @Telstra Sorry Matthew, I never came back to you on this (as I’m afraid to say I actually don’t know) but it suddenly resolved on Thursday.

    @Telstra Not your fault. Interesting though that when I phoned to become a Telstra customer, there was someone ready to discuss it with me immediately. Thanks for trying to help anyway.

    telstra outage in Dulwich Hill, NSW since Wednesday, and still no estimated time of resolution. Not only am I paying for a service I am not receiving, but I am incurring extra data usage charges by using my mobile account as a network. This is not good enough.

    🤣I think your right, a lot of us are so unlucky with shocking mobile phone coverage in our area. Our calls for help are starting to be heard by @Telstra but the battle continues until they address our issue. @andy_penn

    I'm on hold with Telstra because my internet is down. Their wait music seems to be a combination of sombody vacuming up broken glass, Satanic rituals, and the noise you get when you rub balloons together.

    @troyhunt I hate how they do this!! I always hang up & call back. I’ve had to train my parents & siblings to do the same when receiving calls, not just from Telstra. As a security precaution I always say “if you didn’t call them, they could be a scammer, so hang up and call the biz back”

    @Telstra Hi Dan , none of the possibilities you mentioned are likely. The last time when I called the customer service they "refreshed" my connection and it got back to working state. I was advised this won't happen again.

    @Telstra This is your network that is broken. I don’t have 3 hours to sit on hold to a call centre who can only tell me the same information as I can find on your website which clearly doesn’t have the most up to date information, otherwise you’d be aware there is an outage here. You call
