Are TPG customers happy?

Our 2017 ISP satisfaction survey asked close to 2000 CHOICE members what they thought of their provider – 204 of whom were TPG subscribers. In total, we collected enough data to publish on seven ISPs: Telstra, Optus, iiNet, TPG, Internode, iPrimus and Dodo.

Respondents gave their thoughts on connection reliability, speed, value for money, technical support, customer support, bill clarity and how easy it was to set up a new plan.

TPG came 5th overall in satisfaction, scoring just above average overall. It scored best out of all providers in the ‘Value for money’ section, but just above, below or equal to the average in every other category.

However, the top two ISPs are also subsidiaries of TPG – Internode and iiNet.
