Worst Telco EVER

published

I moved all of my business to Vocus in 2016.
I agreed to go with them if they offered me an included call package. The sales guy promised me that the call package was just about to be released. This never eventuated.
Over 3 years they cut my customer incoming calls off, told me that there SBC failed, and it was only related to my services.
They lie, and when you complain it goes nowhere.

They have a bunch ex Commander/M2 management and staff who have brought their porr level of support to Vocus.
I complained and complained, but no one was adult enough to fix the issue.
STAY AWAY

Massive loss of business and revenue thanks to you clowns.

Pathetic customer service and inability to communicate.

published

Have been chasing up Vocus Communications many times now so as to purchase IP transit. Was put in endless loops of the call being transferred to numerous people who had no idea what I was enquiring about. One person could not even transfer me back to reception or their call centre because he didn't know how to. A communications company that know's nothing about communications. Email communication with them is non-existent after you receive the automated response.

Connection TypeIP Transit/Backhaul.

Not a good starter.

published

Amnet is extremely poor when it comes to replying or getting you updated. I've made numerous emails and phonecalls to them, and if I didn't, I wouldn't even know where is the appointment. I also ended picking my modem up at the office because they so conveniently forgot about it. The telstra technician didn't do a good job and now I'm waiting from Amnet to send their own technician. Some employee seemed to know more than other, and it's like I'm dealing with many people at one go. They have to deal with Telstra too, so that'll compromise their efficiency. It would be a bumpy ride but they will get the job done. You have to have incredible patient while they work out the kinks.

Horrible support.

published

Connection wise the ISP is the same as any other, since moving from Amcom to Vocus in WA their support is sub par... they do not get back to you and you need to constantly chase them until they escalate as the lvl 1/2 team are stuffed spuds and should not be working in telecommunication support.

We have 50+ Previous Amcom sites using Fibre/IPTel and since being moved to Vocus trying to get support is a headache and in most cases non existent until the heat is layed on our company rep that works for Vocus.

Clients are complaining and looking at other companies like commander (thats how bad they are...)

Amcom aint what it used to be under Vocus.. #1 ISP to last in my view.

Connection TypeISP Fibre

Not a good service for many many reasons.

published

We had drop outs they recommended that naked would fix the problem. They then said to tell Telstra to replace our phone line to the house. Telstra said it wasn't their problem. Amnet then said to lie to Telstra and say that it was not an ADSL issue. Telstra refused to fix. We even got an electrician in to replace wiring in our roof. They are now trying to force me to pay cancellation fees. I would stay away from Amnet and just go with Telstra. If you think Telstra service is terrible, yes it is, but Amnet are not able to fix issues as they just rent from Telstra to your house.

Great connection at reasonable price.

published

I switched to Amnet almost three months ago and since then I've been asking myself why I didn't make the switch sooner. In the last 2+ months, I've never experienced a drop and the speed is decent compared to my previous provider, Optus. Their call centre is in Perth so that is a plus. I'm happy with their service and for $50 for 100GB, that's pretty reasonable. I'll be staying with them for a long time!

Amnet are the one!

published

Had major problems in our new house with iinet a few years back, ended up with Amnet and couldn't be happier. Service is always on point and the technicians you talk to when you have issues actually know what they are doing. Well done Amnet, please keep the current service model.

Worst ISP i know of

published

After receiving very bad customer service i canceled my account with amnet. Then they started taking money from my bank account for cancellation fees and such. When I asked them about it, they said upon sign up I agreed to let them debit my account in the terms and conditions. Be careful when dealing with amnet, Questionable business ethics.

Great Experience

published

I have just switched over to Amnet from my last provider which I was with for six years +. The reason for the switch was Service, since they were taken over, the support centre was switched from Perth to overseas which had proved most unsatisfactory.
The switch over to Amnet went very smoothly, ADSL2 followed by the land line, less than four days and coordinated without any loss of services.
The connection has been good with no dropouts so far. The Customer Service / Support is excellent, no more holding on the line for 30 minutes for someone to answer.
Congratulations Amnet on you performance.
