Presumably you're just on a standard residential connection, in which case you're not paying for an SLA. Normal fault times are typically in the 1-3 day timeframe, and there is absolutely nothing that can be done to change this. You would have been allocated the first available slot for a technician in your area.

Assuming you have rebooted the ONT and it still has a red light that means there is no optical signal coming down the fibre.

Understand your frustration with not having it working but there isn't anything more you can do at this stage.

Yes it's frustrating. I did reboot it several times but the issue remains.

I was wondering I just started using TP Link Internet over power line adapters to connect my smart tv ( tv wifi was keep dropping before), can they cause this issue.

No

The Red optical light - means there is no optical power at the ONT from the exchange equipment - quick diognostic - your fibre connection is broken and a service tech has to attend

I would doubt it, by the looks you have spade fade or not enough light getting though.

embarassed All sorted by the techs. Apparently my port was assigned to someone else on the other end (optical) so they assigned me new port. Not sure what this means and how this happned though.

But thanks to Orcon and Chorus for sorting it out in couple of days.
