I am truly at my wit's end! My wired connection keeps dropping below my Stay Fast Guarantee, and majority of the times it has been whilst the customer support has been out of hours so I'm not even able to call and report it. I've only been with BT since August and this is the first time I have purchased broadband from anywhere it has been awful.
My speeds will get "reset" and fixed.. but then a few days later it drops again and today it has been so bad that the hub itself keeps disconnecting now. An engineer has even been sent in the past and he could find no fault within my home or outside.
I have tried to call and complain as it literally states that if my speed ever drops below the guarantee, I have to right to cancel fee-free, yet I was refused the option as the speed "looked good" on the customer support's assistant at the time, despite me having visual proof from the BT speed tester that my internet was below the guarantee the night before as well as in the past.
The online chat service has been unhelpful in the past, but I've had to resort to using it again today and now ANOTHER engineer is being sent, which is most likely going to be pointless again.
I'm really unhappy with my service, and think it is so unfair and must be a breach of contract for me to keep having these problems so frequently.
I have asked a moderator to provide assistance, they will post an invite on this thread.
They are the only BT employees on this forum, and are based in the UK.
