Anyone else had a problem when reporting faults online?
Parents ran the fault diagnostics this afternoon as they keep having broadband problems. It identified an external fault so they filled in the details and were given a VOL reference.
They have not recieved and email as you'd normally expect. The BT website doesn't list any open faults, but when checking the service in my area section that does suggest there is an open fault. The MyBT app also suggests an open fault but there is no way to see the details of it.
I can't track it via the VOL reference so was wondering if there was anyway of checking if an Openreach engineer is actually going to be assigned.
The reference is xxxxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxxx if anyone can help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Please remove the VOL nukmber, this is a public website and the number is a personal identifier to your parents.
You mentioned there that there's a fault in the area - is that currently showing on our own service status page?
if there is a fault in the area, we may not be able to progress your parent's fault individually (assuming their issue is linked to that), but the quickest way to check would be to try the live chat faults team.
They should be able check the fault and see what the latest update is (again, if the issue is linked to an issue in the area, there mightn't be much we can do at this stage). Have you tried them at all yet?

If its a failure affecting a number of customers, then it will have a different fault reference, but all other reports will be linked to it, but not visible.
It could be an MSO (Major Service Outage)
Last reports available to me from Openreach are at 3pm. I can only see cabinet problems unless it is a major structual one as are normally reported on "Matters beyond our control" reports, storm damage etc.
I'll check in the morning for you (9am) and see if the is anything.
