ENGLISH O2 cabel internet not activated

However you are and for however reason you ended up here, take a advice:

Do not get cable internet from O2 - in special if you moved in recently and don't speak well German.

 

I 've moved some time ago to Germany with very limited German skills since my work is carried in English. 

I was moved to home office recently due to pandemic  and decided to contract O2 for cable internet. S ince my mobile was from them as well, I thougth I would be valued as costumer. Worst idea ever.

My internet was supposed to be activated and working since 21st of April. Not only is not working as I can not even communicated to the technical department of O 2 that is not working. I have been in an ongoing inferno for almost a month now. I reported several times that I was without internet  in the course of almost ONE unbelievable  month. Every single time I'm transferred to the techinical department that some know English but pretend they don't . 

At the same time, O2 debited from my bank account all the dues. Meaning, I'm paying for a service that I never ever had. It is unbelievable! Looking careful, you can see as well other people complaining the same.

On top of that, I almost lost my job since I rely on the internet now due to pandemic. I had to force my way back to the office. 

So take a advice, look for another internet provider!

Edit o2_Lars: Moved from DSL/Router to English/Broadband

Hello @rsv,

 

I have just checked your connection and it looks like everything is okay now. Have you already tested it and is everything working now?

 

Looking forward for your feedback.

 

Best regards,

Giulia

@rsv did you transmit the MAC address from the router to o2? What error message you get? (Screenshot?)

I was told they have all info since I’m renting it from them. I even preferred to rent to not have the trouble to set up.

The image attached is what happened once I connect to the WLAN and tried to access any site.

I tried already all their apps in Android or MAC that could help to fix it and they all ask me to contact the technical support.

@rsv I have fear this is only a pre ticket number. Did you have any german speaken friend who can assist you with a call?

Unfortunately, no. Due to pandemic I don’t have contact with anyone else.

But in any case, the problem is the technical support team that doesn’t speak English.

Hello @rsv, welcome to our o2 community :-)

I am sorry there seems to be an issue with your cable connection. I had a look into your data. It seems that we tried to send a router to you that came back to us, after veryfiing the address a new router was sent to you and as far as I can see also reached you.

Could you please have a look into the online portal under Mein o2 and verify that the MAC address for the router stated there is the same that you find on the byackside of your router? If not, please change it to the one of the router.

If the MAC address is identical please contact our technical departement either via phone or via chat or WhatsApp so they can have a look into this. 

Regards,

Lars

Hi @o2_Lars ,

Thank you for your interest. As you can see, this is what appears for me (it is translated from German by the way). How can I check it in this situation? 

The problem is that going to technical support is not a viable option, they don’t speak English and my German is too limited. I have tried several times. Can you communicate with them and check it together with them, please? 

Thank you

That's okay. Just the fact that I'm receiving feedbacks and I know that is being taking care is an improvement.
