I mentioned the commerce commission in an email to them last week, their response is below. Lets see if the money is refunded on time as promised.
Why it would take a week to credit my account with banking these days I have no idea, but at this stage I will take it and be done with them.

I am not on Facebook and don't use Twitter.
Why should I need to use these channels when your company provides a call centre to act on customer requests?

TelstraClear: Hi Guys, we are working hard to sort these issues...

Sorry to be a cynic, but I heard that years ago, too :(

(old article, I know, but IMO some of the issues raised then are still present today)

Outsourcing customer services calls to Manila probably won't help much either, I think.

Funny, while I was working there, no-one was paying attention except when some news media was getting involved.
Repeated comments to lower management from staff went unnoticed, I doubt senior management even knows.
Lets see the CEO comment.

For what is is worth, I have been a Saturn / TCL customer since mid 90's and have never had an issue. - I sub to triple home service.

Even the online chat help desk was quick last night - only a few minutes wait to get help.

We waited 3 weeks for the phone to be connected... one mistake after another.
Then when connected no broadband.. was advised would be by XX time today etc... 4 ph calls later we're told the order had never been run and there was no BB connection scheduled.

Finally got it connected - a massive 0.8MB/s. Middle of Auckland City in a newish apt building

Complete and utter imcompetance from Manila.. if you someone fluke a Kiwi on the line, then you get somewhere maybe

I know why Emo's cut themselves now.. they're with Telstra...

They've ignored my requests to cancel the Rialto channel for months now, It's a list of sales droids, helpdesk, their supervisors and the online support people who have all ignored my request. I'm taking it to the commerce commission now as I've been ignored by too many different people for it to be a coincidence. 

Why is it that you can get another expensive channel added on in minutes, but canceling one takes months of hounding?

Another 'amusing' story regarding getting your TC phone line and BB disconnected. My workmate shifted into a flat mid December and got signed up after not too much delay. When they came back from Christmas holidays mid Jan the phone and BB had been disconnected. Turns out they had only just actioned the previous tennants disconnection. A technician had to come out and physically reconnect the lines again. I'm glad to say though, I personally haven't had such issues in 8 years with TC (other than the 1hour helpline wait).

Thanks for your offer Tim but I emailed that address when I got the bill a week ago in reply to the thread from December. Got no reply.

One of the inhome team PM'd me and I forwarded him all my correspondence, He said it should all be sorted and at least the Rialto channel is finally turned off.

It's still seems madness to me that the only way to get problems sorted is to air your dirty laundry publicly on here, on facebook or twitter. Surely that's the last thing the company would want.
