@Telstra @Telstra is there a problem in your system because I've tried five times now and all I'm getting is that Telstra has encountered an error. https://t.co/z7r0ZF7nnG
@Telstra After attempting to fill out the form twice, this is all I'm getting. https://t.co/ckLp4eLkbi
No case manager has been in touch despite me being told that they'd call 'as soon as possible'. I don't even understand how the back end would consider it a move home if it's the same phone number and if the order explicitly said so initially and why it would not be a simple fix.
@Telstra I had taken time off work in the coming week to be at home for the NBN technician and now I don't even know when the order will be connected because tech support are unable to even get a simple address correct. Relevant refs: INT1-1382447515918 INT1-1381409027303
@Telstra and I can't even make a new order because if I do the same problem will happen. Each time I call I'm told I need to wait another 24 hours so that the previous order is cancelled. It's been more than 72 hours and now it's the weekend which means waiting even longer.
