I filled out their online form 2 days ago expressing interest (for a friend) in their cable modem service and just wanted to know if the address was on the network.

No calls, no emails at all. I wonder what their follow up process is?

ZollyMonsta: Which form?


I used this form

Self Service


Now I know why they call it self service - you are only talking to yourself Wink

I find using 'contact us' forms on websites like paying russian roulette. 1 out of 6 will get back to you.

A IT company that i had worked for once built its own data centre and i was trying to organise a wholesale agreement with telstra, had one in place with everyone else, i will never deal with telstra again. it took 2 years and still got nothing. they promised to call back and that it was going to happen and it never did time and time again.

absolutly pathetic! biggest time wasting business i have ever come across bar none.

silence seems to be the standard response at any level of business.

I think the use of PM so that the companies don't take any more flack has to stop. Keep it in the open and then we will see how you solve these problems otherwise I am left thinking that Telstra are c***.

This just wasn't a Contact Us form but a fully fledged form asking for Name, Address, existing TCL accoujnt # if any, phone numbers, email and type of service.

Thanks to ZollyMonsta for getting back to me with, alas, bad news that the area I asked about doesn't have cable modem service

djrm,
The fact that some people choose to help other people on here has nothing to do with any company, this is just a private user wanting to help out someone else, because they can.
 
I for one think that it's great that they hop into places like this to help out other people where they can.

Asking a private user like ZollyMonsta to put a PM out in public which could it include his private personal contact details because he wants to help someone is not cool.

I for one would not list my personal contact details in a public forum... Probably just like you wouldn’t.

If you want it 'kept in the open' I'd suggest you contact the company concerned directly, then you can post your results.
