Solid orange light

I have had no broadband for over 4 weeks. The status light on all three BT hubs I have tried is solid orange .  I have had 5  openreach engineers visits, 3 lift and shifts, 3 times second line open reach have taken the line of BT and synchronised to get a blue light on my hub, then passed it back to BT to get solid orange.  Open reach say its a BT problem, BT say it's an open reach problem.  How do I fix this? Phoning BT every day doesn't work.

Is there any noise on your phone calls? Dial 17070 and select option 2, there should be no noise between the announcements.

Thank you for the suggestion. No noise on the line and the engineers have done a pqt and say everything is good.

Was the phone number that was read out when you dialled 17070 correct?

In order to find out what services and speed range you should be getting, please enter your phone number into this form.

The phone number comes back correctly when it identifies the circuit.  The problem is only with broadband when it failed suddenly on 24th March.  Openreach have run a central test head and obtained a blue light on the hub but it goes back to solid orange when passed back to BT.

Re: Solid orange light

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.

Please bear in mind that with the current crisis, it could take longer than normal for one of them to deal with your request.
