Lodging a Service Call for Internet, Phone and Foxtel
OptiComm is a wholesale access provider and is restricted by law from providing direct assistance to end users for Internet, Phone or Foxtel faults or issues. Please contact your Service Provider directly to lodge any issues. If your Service Provider tells you to contact OptiComm, please inform the customer service representative that they need to lodge the fault with OptiComm on your behalf if they deem the issue relates to OptiComm’s part of the network.
Role of the Service Provider
Your contract for an Internet, Telephone or Foxtel service is with your Service Provider and as such, your Service Provider is responsible for the end-to-end delivery and support of your service. Service Providers are responsible for placing service calls and following up with any wholesale access providers used by them to deliver your service.
Role of OptiComm
OptiComm is a wholesale network operator of the “access” part of the network that delivers your service and is one link in the chain of network providers that your Service Provider utilises to deliver an Internet, Telephone or Foxtel service.
OptiComm’s network has more than sufficient capacity to provide the high speeds required by today’s bandwidth hungry Internet users. The OptiComm network easily delivers the bandwidth that each of our service providers have purchased from us.
Please note that OptiComm does offer different product quality options to our service providers. It is up to the service providers to ensure they purchase the correct product options to ensure they have sufficient bandwidth to adequately service their end users requirements. These design decisions by the service provider, along with the service provider’s traffic class allocations, the end user equipment, quality of the home wiring and the speed of the servers providing the Internet content, will largely determine the speed the end user can achieve. Please contact your service provider for further information or if you are experiencing problems.
