I have been a VF/TC customer for about 9 years now. About 2 weeks ago I placed a call to get a second TV box and to upgrade to gigabit. Was given a price I was happy with, received a confirmation email.... and nothing. After placing follow up calls, and spending the typical time on hold, I found out the order was 'cancelled'. I attempted again, was given a price which was $10/month lower (fine by me).... 2 days later I place a follow up call...'glitch in the system - order 'got' cancelled'. I am at a loss. If I were to invoice VF my consulting rate for the time I spent listening to music on the phone, I'd have paid for my services for a year. Not to mention that I spoke to 6(!) call center people just today). 


Is there a geekzone forum VF resident that can help. I am at a loss...


(sorry for the rant)

Sounds like typical Vodafone service, part of the reason I left. Move to 2degrees, their service is good and they do proper fiber. You'd have to get TV elsewhere though, like Netflix, but that's only about $12 - $20 per month.

I very much fear that you are right, based on my current experience: On Sep 25 I placed an order for fibre connection, and enquired on various occasions about progress. The responses varied from "there was no order" to "pending installation", but despite verbal assurances that confirmation would follow promptly, there was zero communication, and even less action. Today I was told that there were repeated orders raised by the sales team, but they "failed" whatever that may mean (and of course VF people did not see any need to either actively follow up on these failures, or to notify me, the customer, of their failures. 


After looooong phone call today, maybe hope that we will see some action, but that may be optimistic...


Thoroughly frustrated!
