Help with my Optus issue
Did that get it fixed?
Waiting to see if GetHuman-jrus fixed the issue with our suggestion.
The issue in GetHuman-jrus's own words
I have signed up for Optus nbn. I was promised several times that it would be activated on ** Sept ****. This did not happen and all I can find is a message on track my order that someone will contact me by **th. I was told by Optus to cancel my connection with my previous provider by **th which was done. Now I have no internet connection and no indication of when or if activation will ever happen. All I know is that there is a problem with the nbn order and it has to be redone. This is a terrible situation. I would not have cancelled my existing provider if I had known this could happen. My son is studying for his HSC and desperately needs a connection. I have no idea what is happening or when likely to get a connection and that is wholey unacceptable. Further there appears to be no one who can answer my questions. *I spent nearly *.* hours holding on the Optus customer service line last night. Only to be referred to various departments. Every time I was passed to a new dept I was kept waiting for ** to ** mins and had to repeat all of my details and explain the problem again. Finally I was connected to Tech Support who told me there was a problem with the order and I could not be connected. That person put me through to someone who could help with my order. They simply held me for about ** mins and then cut me off without speaking. I wish to cancel this order because Optus have not met their obligations and my family and I have been greatly inconvenienced.

GetHuman-jrus did not yet indicate what Optus should do to make this right.
