I have been experiencing very slow speeds on my 25/5 fibre plan since i signed up. Carried out a number of speed tests at different times. Discovered that around 7pm onwards the speeds drop drastically. Last night I ran speed test every 10 mins from 7-11pm. the highest speed I got was around 9Mbps. In the morning ran the same tests from 6.30-8am. was getting near perfect speeds between 22-25Mbps. Obviously Exetel/Opticomm is not coping at night. have already logged this with Exetel couple of days ago. Not holding my breath for a definitive response.

Anybody else out there with similar issue. I will keep agitating until I get a decent response. Opticomm can not hold a monopoly in the area and get away with pathetic service. Knocking on TIO and ACCC doors soon.

can you please provide a response time frame? According to what I have read from other customers in this forum and other forums, Exetel has a poor track record when it comes to timely responses to customer queries.

We will be able to provide you an update as soon as one has been made available as advised.

A definite time frame cannot be provided as it depends on the time taken for the investigations to complete and as such will have to wait till they update us.

@slingam just wondering if this was resolved. Could you provide an update?
I am having the same speed issues in Curlewis, Victoria and have not had any help from exetel as yet. (apart from the generic email reply's)
Thanks, Shannon
