Channelling CG here - woke this morning to no internet connection. We have had NBN connected for 2 day, fabulous speed, amazing but 2 days in and we have our first outage.

Fire up the mobile hotspot to see what is what. No NBN outages reported for my area, go the the Telstra website and they have an online test function, NBN tests fine, the line test however times out after 20 minutes. They supply a toll free number to call.

After going through their automated system I am finally told there is a 20+ minutes wait and if I stay on the line (hint hint) they will require a whole bunch of information to fix the problem.

And here is the kicker - they play the most horrendous music while waiting the 20+ minutes.

Meanwhile they have fixed the connection, I only found out by trying to connect again.

I'm not sure if I should be bitching about the outage or praising them for the rapid repair/reconnect.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
