Hi

I have been facing internet issues at home and this is the second day in a row my internet does not work at all.
I am moving home in 15 days, so I have pre booked the cancellation giving 30 days notice and because of that the support team is refusing to send me a technician to solve my problem. after I complained a lot they told me they may send someone in 5 days because is when they may have availability. I Don’t have internet at the moment but I am still being charged for more 25 days, even after I have already moved.
I need the internet to work and this is being a very big problem to me. I do not recommend it!

We moved house 1 1/2 hours across town to an apartment. Paid $300 for a new development charge on the 15th March that TPG direct debuted off my credit card. Tried to have nbn installed on the 29th March and was told it was activated. It was not. Spent - so far the last 10+ days being lied to by TPG that the address we sent them (screenshot of the actual lease address to their email with a shot of the nbn box and it’s serial code) was not the correct address and it was being drawn out on a long process for bad customer service as well as broken promises and lies.
Called NBN itself to get the accurate address id and they mailed me back and I forwarded that to TPG to connect on the 4th April. I heard nothing from them and called 6th April at which point they decided to action that information at the point of my phone call even though they had that info for 2 days. I was lied again as I’ve lost count how many times my follows had been escalated and had no action on any of them. Forwarded to head case managers who actually don’t have a clue what their doing except for themselves and in no way asssasting the customer. Infuriation turned to outrage when I called today (10th April) where they said that because they were given the wrong information (we gave them what was on the lease and what nbn sent us to match to their data) we would need to pay another $300 to continue (but they were going to see about waiving that fee - which by the sound of things they won’t - and I’m still waiting.
I have called an ombudsman because this is the worst customer failed service I’ve ever had, I’ve called another isp and they have told me that since tpg have not activated the service I’m entitled to get that $300 back but TPG seem to firstly refuse the refund and secondly saying some other source took the $300 out even though it says TPG in the cc statement.
The ombudsman and NBN complaints line themselves had said that TPG asking for another handout of $300 is not policy because the mistake was theirs not mine and I’ve paid $300 already for a service they haven’t activated.
So next step is a solicitor to get my money back. But avoid this company because it has going above and beyond any element of anything I have ever dealt with before. Utterly appalling and unacceptable.

This dirty company will play you like a yo-yo. Its stealing candy from a baby. That's how dirty this provider is. We have been a loyal customer for more than 3+ years.
Lately our internet has been dropping out. And there has been a period of a full month we had no internet connection. They won't tell you your internet is out. But you have to call them to let them know. Even so, I demanded a recommendation for the month. They gave me the time from of 3 days because i didn't call earlier. And recompensate me $15 bucks which of course went down the drain. They didn't even deduct it from the next transaction nor bank return to my account. I wonder where that money went. Wait.... There is more. Due to bad connection we didn't received the full up to 24mbs it says. We have a whooping 5mbs max download and 1 MBS upload. Going to wait a week for an email to be send. Therefore TPG received a refund notice from ACCC to refund us $80 buck which have been waiting for a month.

When I cancelled my no lock in contract. You still have to pay additional fee one month. How does that work.

Don't don't guys. If you love getting fucked in the ass with no Vaseline. Then highly recommended. Your money, your choice. Choice wisely. Sometimes its better to pay that little bit extra for a better service provider

DO NOT USE TPG! They're PATHETIC.. If you want to hear how bad TPG is, read on!

Was with TPG for one year, set up our account early Nov. TPG took over 3 wks to send the router and me about 4 days to pick it up. from the PO. Service was fine till the first bill only to find we had been billed for 1 mth internet from initial setup Which was when they hadn't even sent us the router which is ESSENTIAL for actually using the internet.
The issue could've been easily resolved with a $60 refund.
I called TPG -which has, THE most inefficient customer service system in place I've ever seen, and I think it's intentional.

1st Call: Simple enough, had me believing it'd be resolved. I calledup, explain the situation to the rep, they pulled up my information and we went over the details.

2nd Call: after several weeks when still nothing had come of it. I called again, explained the situation to a new rep, they pulled up the information, we went over the details. I was told this time that they couldn't do anything until they pulled up recordings of our initial conversations with TPG during account setup and confirmed the dates when the router was actually sent out and received. I was told to expect a call back by end of business the next day.

I'm sure nobody is surprised it never came.

I gave TPG a week to call back.
3rd Call: the same. yet another rep, explain everything yet AGAIN. They pulled up my details, I'm frustrated and annoyed but I keep it civil but am more assertive and insistent because I did NOT have any intention of them convincing me to hang up again just for them to do nothing so that I'd have to call up and explain the same shit again.
I got handed on to the manager because the peon didn't know how to deflect my reasonable arguments. The manager said the same thing the last rep had told me, except apparently the request for the recordings hadn't even been SENT. Not even the REQUEST. I was once again told (by the manager) that I'd receive a call back regarding them by end of business the next day and was appeased enough by his words that I consented to hang up and wait until the next day.

Lesson Learned: Never Trust A Smooth Talker.

4th Call: explained the same shit. This time I asked the name of the representative to whom I was speaking. It was Marion or something.
I explained everything that the manager had said to me 2 days prior regarding the recordings and how I had YET AGAIN not received a call back. She had me believing they'd heard the recordings "forgotten" to return my call
I was to expect a confirmation text from her regarding whether I'm eligible for a refund or not by end of business the next day.
Surprise! I got the text. Nothing else though.

5th Call: roughly 10am. New rep. I demanded to speak to Marion. was told shes busy but will call me back by 3pm.

6th Call: it's after 4pm. Demanded Marion. Am apologised to, told her manager will arrange a refund for me within the week.

7th Call: several weeks later. Demand manager. Am told refund is on its way.

They can keep my fucking $60. What a pathetic company.

I am using TPG from past 4 years and speed of internet is good. Initial 2 years I was using ADSL2+ and the speed I was getting decent enough speed to stream youtube vidoes without buffering on a my TV. Then I got switched to their FTTB service and I am getting superb speed much better than the ADSL2+. The transition between setup was smooth without any service drop-of and I haven't faced a single interruption in the service for the last 2 years.

The worst and the most terrible internet provider, even though I cancelled my contract with them cause they couldn’t connect any connection to my house, they are still charging my account and they don’t refund any of those charges, how stupid it can be, I’m paying for a service that I don’t have.

We ordered a TPG intenet service in addition to our existing Telstra service. We have 20 lines coming in to our property (excessive I know) and only one is used by Telstra. We told TPG you can use any of the unused 19 lines.
Naturally TPG uses the one that Telstra has, and tells Telstra to disconnect its service. So here we are with no land line for 3 days. Telstra won't reconnect it, saying we have a new provider. TPG refuses to fix what it broke. They tell us to contact Telstra to get our service back.
I cannot believe how TPG screwed up our order, and then refuses to fix the problem they caused. Shocking bad service.

I transferred to NBN and asked to keep my home phone number, which because I had done it on-line was ignored. I was unknowingly given another number. People, businesses, work all thought I had left, as a result I have lost income, had parcels returned to companies, and had worried friends thinking I had been injured or died and had moved. TPG’s answer TOO BAD. Make an application on line and you are automatically given a new number.

Rate 0 for everything if I could. Connectivity=rubbish. They couldn't even reconnect me when I moved and expected me to pay for the connection. So I decide to leave them and they slap a $380 fee on me. Absolute joke
