Has anybody managed to get throught to Telstra in the last week?
Just called again  " your call cannot be connected due to overloading"been like that since mid last week.. I am having issues with my A/c , and have emailed them but, 'they can't help I have to call". No big deal if you CAN call.
Sent another email last Thurs re above but no reply, Really poor service

They don't even seem to be answering questions submitted by email either. Submitted one on 22/03 and STILL waiting a response.

I am calling them to transfer my service to my new home, but with all this waiting I am looking at alternatives..
So they are really not doing them self any favours..

Just don't pay your bill, I find that they are very prompt in chasing up overdue accounts.

Tried calling faults = "the longest currently waiting call is...25...minutes"
Tried calling customer services = "the longest currently waiting call is...17...minutes"

Good thing I wasn't in a hurry :S I kind of wonder how many people they have answering their phones these days...
