Please continue to advise people in your community signing up for Jump to contact the Skinny Helpdesk for support if they are having trouble setting up their accounts. It could be a faulty modem. During the last four weeks, we have recorded 74 faulty modems (out of nearly 3000 shipped); this can be frustrating for the customers involved, but can be quickly confirmed by a Helpdesk operator. As soon as a Helpdesk operator identifies a faulty modem, they log it in a shared Google Sheet and we swing into action in shipping a replacement (this will take a few days and depending on local courier delays, could take up to a week).
Some Jump customers have also been frustrated in trying to contact the Skinny Helpdesk over the weekend and end up calling you. The Helpdesk hours are:
8am – 7pm Monday to Friday
9am – 5.30pm on Saturdays
Digital only: 9am – 5.30pm on Sundays and Public Holidays (this means customers will not be able to talk to an operator by phone; they will only be able to use the online chat, which won’t help that much if they are having trouble setting up their modems!)
