I have had UFF installed  days ago - no problem with internet. Installers back this am to connect phone - they left saying it would be activated soon. I can get dial tone and when I phone a number always get reply from the voice test line no matter what number. If my number is called it rings for the caller but not at my end so not getting any calls.
Been through several call queues and now waiting in Voice over Fibre Queue.

Problem is that I need to Telecomference to Australia at 3pm and don't want to do it from my cell phone.

Any way of getting this sorted by 3pm? I have been trying since 10am.

I have just been on the chat system and have been told that the wait is still 2hours - I have been in various queues since 12noon. There is a serious staffing problem here.

Problem solved - thank you to Dave here on Geekzone. Very much appreciated.

One of the parts of the issue related to the fact that I had requested the fibre update more than 18 months ago and at that time there was no  voice over fibre option available from Spark. The time to get fibre related to the fact that I am in an apartment and being a MDU with a reasonably complex install it takes time even though there were no issues with getting body corporate consent.

Working between Chorus and Spark certainly has its challenges together with the queuing system when you get into a queue only then to be passed to the next queue because you are in the wrong queue and then have another 2 hour wait.

Not sure what the lesson is here but perhaps it is to make sure the copper connection is to cut before you are sure the the voice over fibre is actually working.

Once again thanks Dave for your intervention and help.

You're welcome.  Very sorry about the mountain you've had to climb to get Fibre installed.  The main issue here was that because the original order was put in well before Spark launched Fibre Landline, and thus Fibre Landline was not provisioned at our end.  Unfortunately Chorus mistakenly cut your copper thinking it was a Fibre landline install (because most of them are these days).  We've fully provisioned the Fibre Landline, and you should be good to go.
Sorry again for the hassles, it is certainly not our intent!

If you use online chat and say that you just got Fibre connected and you can make outbound calls not inbound, then someone should be able to get the service order closed off.
The fact you get dial tone and can make outbound calls is ideal since many people get stuck before they even get there. So getting this fixed via online chat should be pretty quick and easy.
