Ringing them now to report the fault is still present.
The noise on the line has reappeared and the disconnects are increasing in frequency.
EDIT: on phone to CS to report a Phone Line fault and neither myself or the operator can just about hear each other the noise is that bad. They are calling me back on my mobile.
EDIT #2: fault team have booked another engineer to come out 02/01/20 - they have booked an internal & extenal engineer this time as previous Engineer when he visited refused to check the cabinet, as said it wasn't needed as fault had been fixed.
They have issued a credit to the account as compensation due to the fact we've had zero to no services for over a week (or when the next engineer arrives will be 2 weeks) .

The line is pretty much in a disconnection loop again.

Noise Margin has fallen flat from what is was before and thus upload has more than halved, max data v data rates are exceeding each other. I'm struggling to get my head around this and why the first engineer did not visit the cabinet... on the verge of phoning Virgin to see if there anything they can do to get services in the new property as this is a shambles.
Can someone tell me if I made the order on the 05/12/19 , services went live 19/12/19 - next engineer visit is 02/01/20 , this is the last day of my 14 day right to cancel ? i.e does the 14 days start at time of ordering or time of live activation ?
Also the compensation was not something I asked for, the operator brought this up and whilst I welcome the sentiment of £30 of next months bill, I'd sooner just have the damn thing fixed first time round. Apologies for getting a bit irate but after almost a decade with Virgin Media and only having maybe 1 or 2 disconnects a YEAR and if there was ever a fault, the Engineers would be out within 48hours not in 1 week.
Is there a moderator or someone that can escalate this and prioritise a visit sooner? I'd be much obliged.
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.
This would be dealt with as an early life failure, and you are entitled to free visits from Openreach until the problem is fixed.
just posting an update to the mod(s) tracking this thread, as I think my head is about to explode in terms of bewilderment, since my last post....
my HUB has been solid for the past 32 hours and no noise on phone line. How can it just magically all rectify itself like that, or is there a crimp in the line that has uncrimped itself... or has someone changed a connection secretly at the cabinet or ..... ? I don't know anymore...
From being a phone line that was so terrible, that both times BT operators had to ring me back on my mobile to converse with me, to now being silently clear (silent line tests), it baffles me.
I'm not cancelling the Engineer visit though as knowing my luck the moment I do, it'll all flare up again..
Been monitoring connection and it's been stable for the past few days
Sorry about the delay in getting back to you, we aim to pick up cases within 48 hours but due to the holiday period, it took us a little longer.
I'm glad to hear your connection is looking better but please let us know if you start having problems again and we can look into this for you.
That's fine, no worries.
I've been monitoring the line over the past 4 days and it's been fine no disconnects with the exception of a few minutes ago. Although admittidly I haven't been testing the phone for 4 days as the wife and I only really use our mobiles and was under the assumption all was fine.
The wife rang the home phone just now, as she went out with the kids and I stayed at home. I answered the phone and the phone line was all crackly and the Broadband disconnected/reconnected. So something isn't right still. Do I need to log the fault again or will you guys be doing it?
Log after the Hub Reconnected
Upload speed has dropped to 11mbps from 20mbps and noise magin and attenuations have all changed again.
Hi @RobbieMac @Matt-S
No worries, Hub is disconnecting / reconnecting every few hours now. Line testing with phone quiet line test and noise is still there. Kicking myself for cancelling that engineer now under the advisement of CS... but why would it be fine for 4 days solid then poof, back on a disconnect loop again.
I won't raise a fault just yet with the fault team, will wait for @Matt-S to contact me again with directions.
