no Network Termination Units in Australia

I've had no internet for nearly 14 days and counting, after 9 days I finally had an LBNco engineer onsite to look at the line. Wow, low and behold it was a faulty Network Termination Unit (NTU - box on the outside of house), something I was telling them for 9 days. Now the issue is with LBNco (fibre wholesaler - similar to NBNco but cheap and dodgy). Exetel have tried to get an ETA on the NTU, but alas no response or ETA. I'm assuming they have no NTU's in Australia, is anyone else waiting on an NTU or installation? I've raised a case with the Telecommunication Industry Ombudsman, I think they might find this interesting...

Burns Beach is in WA.
Whitey3 has contacted Exetel, so we'll leave it here. No excessive criticism of another ISP please.

I will further have a look in to your issue with an escalation to the LBN management. Reply back with your ticket reference number or PM me the service number.
