FTTN - service not working in Terrigal

Post by mjwills » Sat Jun 17, 2017 11:45 am

My mother has Exetel FTTN in Terrigal, previously on Exetel ADSL. Her account number is 0201328622 .

She has been without internet and phone for about 10 days. This used to happen on ADSL as well, although not usually for this long.
It only happens when it rains (so I am assuming the cable somewhere is waterlogged, but obviously I can't prove this). To be clear, it is not slow - it is non-existent.

She has spoken to Exetel on the phone, and the support staff emailed her with a NF10WV manual as well as login details for the router. These are not super useful since:

a) She can't read the manual since she lacks internet
b) The modem was setup and working fine previously

Is there a way for me to contact Exetel's support staff on my mother's behalf?
Please note, I live 2 hours drive away from my mother - so I can't call from her phone.
I am particularly interested in talking about whether Exetel can co-ordinate with Telstra / NBN / whomever looks after cabling issues to come out and check the problem.
