Fffffnnnnn scammmers Missed a call from this number and no message was left, so I called back and reached "Solo Network". The dim-sounding man said he had no idea why they hadn't left a message (as if they ever do!) but it would have been about a discount on my phone. In a rage, I told him what I thought of that, and demanded that they never call me again.
So they called back the next day at the same time, and then again in the evening, though I'd blocked the number by then.
These are persistent pests, and because the number seems to exist I have reported the calls to the Do Not Call Register.
Said they were Solo Network, and were calling people in my suburb, LOLOLOL, I live in the middle of the bush, couldn't answer questions, line on there end , very scratchy not clear and kept breaking up, made an absolute idiot of themselves then hung up when I told them they were SCAMMERS. Do not give any details to them Scam. Foreign voice. Said he was from the phone company I was with. Didn't say which. Offered me a new deal. Kept asking questions trying to trick me into giving a "yes" answer but I was on my guard.
I left the phone off the hook for 5 - 10 minutes without hanging up so that he wouldn't be able to ring & annoy someone else for a while.
Caller: Solo Network
This organisation are UNETHICAL and NASTY, August last year they called my mother and hassled her about changing her NBN provider. She asked for them to forward her information so she could forward it to me. Instead they ported her ADSL and Landline to their company without permission and started forwarding her accounts which were twice as expensive as the provider she was using. The first she knew about the porting, was when she received a bill in October from her original provider with termination of contract fees. She contacted her original provider (Telstra) and requested that they reconnect her to the bundle that she was originally contracted to. Solo Network continued to bill my mother, threatening her on the phone, threatening her with disconnection and threatening her with a "Credit Default Listing Notification". In 6 months the account escalated to over $750.00. I lodged a complaint on my mother behalf with The Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman (TIO). The complaint contained my details, and no sooner did I lodge the complaint then they started to ring my phone with intimidation and threats. They even stated that it was my obligation to pay the bill as my mothers Representative. These people are manipulative, ruthless and totally heartless in the way they chase vulnerable people. In the past week, with the help of the TIO negotiating between myself and Solo Network, all monies outstanding have been written off, with no further communication between Solo Network and my mum forthcoming and no Credit Default Listing being lodged. This whole situation was not helped with TELSTRA, I and my brother spent hours on the phone or at a TELSTRA SHOP trying to sort this out, with so many departments and call centres off shore, getting consistent information was impossible. Anyone else caught up with Solo Network, please go through the TIO and be patient, keep notes. Better still just don't pick up the phone and block the number asap.
Caller: Caller from Solo Network claimed his name was Jack.
Requested details of the plan which never arrived. I did report this to scam watch. Now almost 3 months after phone call I received an account which looks very legitimate however it has no itemised phone calls and only Landline charges. A complete scam.I will notify scam watch again!
They phoned and my wife took the call, sadly she is trusting and I took over and told them to bugger off. That did not stop them from ringing again... this time I was not as polite as my wife. I can't use the words appropriate for these scamming vermin. I blocked this number days ago, but they still try to call - again and again and again, including in the evening. It's like a plague that no one seems to have the ability or the will to exterminate. Caller: Jerry from Solo Networks
Called first time on 7 January claiming they could offer cheaper deal than Telstra. Asked for Drivers Licence no or Medicare No I have them false Medicare number. Declined offer but today 7 February rang again using “Private No” saying he was from NBN and claiming someone was illegally using my internet. I asked for his phone number and a reference number to verify caller and surprise!! surprise!! He gave me same number as Solo Networks and same original Reference No from 7 January! Not very bright 👿 but clearly evil!! I reported it with contact numbers to Scam Watch.

I have just received a bill from Solo Network. I haven't paid yet and certainly I won't be paying this bill. Thanks for your comments. How frightening. Telstra get paid by them, for their calls, etc. Telstra are in on it. Caller: Scammer
Blocked number after reading comments. They will not give up calling my private number. I do not pick up numbers I don't recognise. Will they ever give up?? They have been phoning my number for one month. After three weeks, I finally blocked number, but they still try. Caller: PHONED TWICE TODAY, DID NOT LEAVE A MESSAGE.
DID NOT LEAVE A MESSAGE - I NO LONGER ANSWER LANDLINE UNLESS I RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER CALLING
Keep getting calls from this no. I do not answer and they hang up letting the phone beep for about 30 seconds. Time the govt did something about these scumbags praying on vulnerable people Spoof caller. Scammers. I don't pick up
