Is your Direct Save Telecom internet down?
If you want to contact Direct Save Telecom about a suspected outage on its service, here are a few checks you can do yourself before waiting in a call queue.
First, try rebooting your Wi-Fi router to make sure it isn’t a hardware fault. If it’s still not working, we recommend checking social media. Although DST isn’t updating its social media, you can search to see if anyone else is complaining about their broadband being down. Try searching for #dst, #directsave or #directsavetelecom.
