FIFA World Cup fans have been subjected to a third night of troubled streaming of the action from Russia through Optus.
On Friday night Optus Sport on Twitter answered early enquiries suggesting users troubleshoot by “tapping the video to display the settings wheel and changing the quality to high.”
It soon became evident the issue was far more widespread. By Saturday morning via several media went into bat on behalf of angry users.
An Optus spokesman said the crashes were the result of a high number of users logging on and signing up -the same saga that sent Game of Thrones return crashing for Foxtel last year.
Crucially, the problems continued on Saturday night during the Socceroos match.
More media reports savaged the telco on Sunday, prompting a pledge from CEO Allen Lew.
But last night there were still issues.
The telco has been savaged on social media with a #Floptus hashtag trending.
Optus is charging $15 for the FIFA World Cup coverage but is yet to offer refunds.
