Yet anothet house more fiasco.
Moving House so called to inform BT early so we would have as little disruption as possible. However all is not good.
We have now moved into a fairly new property that is a rental so not ours and was informed by the landlady there was a phone line so all this would mean is an engineer to come and switch it on and switch on broadband.
When we arranged this BT said they have no record or a line??? Not being an expert I called the landlady and she said that she was with sky and had the phone and broadband with them..Ok no problem called BT and told them this and great and engineer was booked as I was told this will be sorted...
No Engineer showed up and no call was made to let me know...So once again at my expence I called BT and it showed the engineer had been and reported there was a problem with the line..what problem??? We have not had the full report back yet so we waited for a call the next day but didnt get one...Oh well I I called again at my expence and was to there was an issue with the line i.e. there was no line???? WTF the landlady had sky broadband and Sky dish and to top it all a frigging phone number...Anyhoo I was told it will all be sorted by Monday. 14th DEC . I had a call from BT saying that there is deffinatly no physical line to the property and we will not be able to do anything until the 10th of Jan...Confused to say the least..
We have a phone number for the property that was the landlady's so how can this be???
This is costing a fortune in calls to BT and topping up a dongle for the internet..
Please help as I suffer from Combat related PTSD and my life line is my support groups on the internet and I cannot afford to top up the dongle as I get just 68 quid a week war pension..
So do you suggest that a call to sky may resolve this issue?? or at least speed things up.
But you guys are saying that there is not a line here at all..So I am confused to say the least..
The time between the line ceasing in the landladies property and you taking it over . Somebody else has asked for an installation of a phone . Your OH--overhead-wiring was taken and your underground cable pairs all taken from the DP-distribution point-pole/wallbox etc through the green cabinet in the road all the way to the exchange. Seen it a million times. Angry subscriber - "but I have a line in the house" BT- But thats all you have and will have to pay for the installation. And when I went out to do it in some cases I was nearly assaulted[depending on area] by the angry womans husband. . I got the blame when it should have been directed elsewhere. So you are not the only one annoyed by this sort of thing. In all the cases I went to everyone had to pay the full price as internal wiring didnt count when it came to costs.Whether thats changed now I dont know.
Been in touch with the landlady and she says that she was there when BT installed the line however BT are still claiming there is NO ACTUAL LINE to the house..So we have a Landline Number from BT but BT is saying they is no line...What now. ???????????????????????
She might have been there when the line was put in but that must have been long ago. As I said above --In the intervening time all the external stuff must have been used for another subscriber. BT dont leave a line connected when the rental is ceased . If that was the case there would be less spare pairs of wires for other subscribers-The exchange side is used for somebody else -the distribution side is used for a neighbour even the overhead can be used for another neighbour. It doesnt matter if there is internal wiring it doesnt count for costs. Ask her the time difference between the line being ceased and you wanting to take it over it cant be days it must be weeks.
