I found an "open" fault dated 31 Jan about my phone line on the BT page when I went to run a speed test yesterday
I don't remember raising the phone line as a fault but no matter I tried to mark it as closed/fixed but the page won't let me do this as it seems BT are investigating the "none existant" problem with my phone line.
What can I do ?
Or, should I just ignore this until BT get around to doing whatever they are going to do ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
If a common fault occurs which is going to affect a large number of customers, an automatic fault report is added to all affected customers accounts, so that if a customer complains, the helpdesk can see that its a common fault, when they look at your account.
This saves lots of extra fault reports being raised, and a lot of wasted time.
When the common fault has been cleared, then all those faults reports should be closed off automatically. In your case, this does not appear to have happened.
Faults can get logged when you test it online and stay in an open state for a few working days. Would you like me to close this for you? I'll be able to see how it was raised or why.
Thanks for picking this up Daniel
Close it please
I now think it may have been raised when I was experiencing multiple "drop outs" which would fit the timing
My connection (bb) has been normal now for 3 weeks which seems to have coincided with the lack of openreach activity at the cabinet serving me after seeing a lot of activity there during this time (3 vans at one time)
The landline worked normally during all this & continues to do so
Hope this may be helpful
Thanks for getting back to me @dcdick.
We don't seem to have your details any more. Can you drop them to me? You can find our contact link by viewing my profile again. Let me know when you've done it and I'll close it off.
The 3rd was when I noticed the open fault & yes I did a bb speed test on that date so perhaps that's what you are seeing.
As part of my contact renewal negotiations I actually signed for a different provider to focus BT into offering me a better deal (which they did) & the new BT contract I accepted would have activated itself on the 3rd ( I think) although there was no interuption in my service.
That could well explain the lack of details available to you ?
Happy to mark this as solved
