4 years ago the installation of my broadband was so problematic I received an apology from bt's CEO and compensation of £600 . ( and an assurance that bt's relationship with openreach would improve.)
So, when I recently moved house I assumed everything would run smoothly. Wrong !
An openreach engineer was supposed to connect my infinity broadband on Monday ..... But he never turned up! I therefore took the day off work for nothing. On Wednesday I was informed by text that a new appointment had been made .... For next month!!!
I phoned to complain, and after 3 hours on the phone ( mainly on hold ) I was told the appointment would happen tomorrow and I would receive a text this morning confirming this .
No text arrived. So ... After another hour on the phone I spoke with Stephanie at accringtpn who told me that I was 'misinformed' about tomorrow's engineers visit and that due to the bank holiday weekend it would now be next week before I would be given a new installation date.
The reason for the failed engineers visit was given was ' lack of available resources ' . I pointed out that as openreach had failed to keep their appointment they should treat this case as a priority. But no. It appears I just go to the back of the queue again .
This is appalling. I still have no idea when my broadband will be connected, have lost a days work and spent over 4 hours on the phone.
Once again I will be seeking full compensation. Why cant BT get something as simple as a broadband connection right?
I have been a personal BT customer for 20 years and run a business that spends £20000 per year with BT . I am so tempted to transfer my business to another provider that offers good customer service - and keeps their promises ( and answers the phone within half an hour!)
