Fifa 17 Server Issues with Optus (Australia)

[ Edited ]
★★ Novice
I'm having serious server issues where I can't connect for hours at a time to the servers. Is this a common problem with Optus? I have no problems connecting to Xbox Live at any point and have an Open NAT type. Any known fixes through router/IP setup that help?

Same thing happens to me! This is absolutely crazy after all the money I have spent on this game! I get disconnected every 10-20 minutes and cant even reconnect at all most times after the disconnect. Changed consoles, changed routers, set the ps4 in a dmz, had an optus tech come out and check all lines but it still happens! It does not do that to any other game but fifa. I still stay signed on ps4 and can still chat in a party without a hiccup! It's 100% EA's issue. Only happens after 5pm-6pm. Im in NSW btw. I dont remember it doing this at all before the last update. All i know is this is a serious problem that EA needs to rectify! Happens to my a couple of my friends as well, I'm seriously thinking about getting PES 17 it's that bad.

I just can't get the matches to go as well - 2/10 success

Perhpas we are too distant from the server?

PC sucks big time when it comes to fifa.  I am going to buy PS4 and see how it goes.

Oops I just created a new post and appears people are having my same issue. Anyone at all with any help??? I am wondering if it is an Optus issue or an EA issue, my mobile hotspot allows me to log in!

I called Optus to try to get help from them but they were no help and actually managed to stuff up my broadband and put me out of action for 2 days. If we could at least pinpoint whether it's EA or Optus would be a great start. But doesn't look like we get much support from either company...

Another one here. Rang Optus. Can't or won't do anything. Drives me crazy. Definitely an Optus problem. Happens every night 7:30-11:30pm. Every other game works online but FIFA 17. Just won't connect to ea servers.
PS4 in DMz. New router/modems. Can't fix the bloody problem.
If I hotspot to my phone (Telstra) it works!! Just not when connected via lan cable to god dam Optus.
