NEVER sign up with Optus!

I can only connect to the ’net by hanging off my iPhone.

I have just ended three horrible years with the bastards, Optus. No land line, had to have a dongle. Constant daily drop outs. But then, for two years in a row, they would allege that for a couple of months, I had exceeded usage and charged me $10.00 an extra thing. So, I was getting bills for about $150.00 a month. Then I discovered that they were alleging usage while I was at golf or we were asleep. (TIB does not use it.) I would send daily emails bitching, and get ignored.

The last straw. Got a monthly bill for $444.00. Told them to far cough, and got Aussie Broadband NBN through a land line which Optus said they could not supply. Fantastic.

Optus huffed and puffed threatening litigation. Told them to far cough. Threatened them with the Ombudsman. They caved and settled for a payment of $100.00.

Fuckers.

I recently swapped my mobiles to optus. My landline is still with telstra although I want to change. I just don't want to get locked into any contract.

I have Spectrum Cable Internet. Lightning fast, but I'll be moving soon and have no idea what to expect. My company phone can be used as a hot spot and it's free, so that is my back up plan.

NBN tech was here. 2 hours fooling around inside here plus at the node cabinet/mainframe.

FTTN works! 53:15 not bad (supposed to be 25:5 hope they leave it as is!)

I had crap internet—I reckon shortly after I got the FTTN device the problem developed and I was actually using the wireless service and since I moved that into the hall away from windows of course it was crap!

Now I get “No Service” oh why oh why did I change fromn the wireless broadband service? 12:1 is not flash but it was steady and reliable, never a problem.

Your need to ask yourself "do I feel lucky"? You should relocate from the lucky country to a clever country.

Finally my internet problems are fixed. FTTN 53:16. Better than the wireless. Will check again at 4.00 when the kiddies are at home skyping, computer gaming etc.

Why ? why? do Oz govts think cheapest is bestest.?

Because they are definitely NOT WORTH the Bonuses their CRONIES enjoy. from the public purse. .
It is disgusting. But OH NO scotty thinks it's mag. Bullshit Bullshit.
Hounds a woman ( Holgate) out of a job she excelled in, but happily pays mates millions, BIG MONEY, for the abject failure that is the NBN..

The NBN is an excellent example of government CORRUPTION.

Given all the other issues they're failing at, you'd think they'd have a little more control over public funds,

ASK ANYONE, in regional or other areas, who get fuck all but still pay for it.. if THEY/WE think these toss-heads should get bonuses for their excellent service..??

I'd say absolutely NOT. Give it back you rip-offs.!!

Scomo's pals are laughing all the way to the bank.. OR the Super Fund. Cunts the lot of them.
