Moreover, we shouldn't be told and promised any dates if you don't know them yourselves. The online fault tracker has been useless for that...
I’ve had no broadband for a month now after a vehicle damaged a green box. I’m well aware that it’s not BT’s timescale but the lack of communication and clear alternative to the problem has resulted in me needing to take an hour’s commute to go into university where I can use the internet to get my thesis done. The point I’m trying to raise is BT shouldn’t keep ringing us to say it’s fixed (happened twice now) or that it’s due to be fixed soon (lost count). Where can I go from here? I’d ideally like to raise a complaint with the way we’ve been treated.
this is a openreach problem as cab was damaged by a car and problem is getting council approval for work something omitted from this post
Try looking on one.network (was roadworks.org) to see if Openreach have notified your local council of any upcoming work that might need traffic lights or road closures etc. You may have to register to see dates over two weeks ahead though.
You’re missing the point of my complaint. I want an accurate fix date, I’m not expecting openreach to break the laws of it overnight. It’s been a month of false promises. We were promised the 20th February...
Why can’t BT say when it’ll be fixed rather than promising dates that aren’t possible? I’d like a mod in this please
Not missing the point at all, had exact same situation 4 miles away in 2018.
It took five months to fix as Openreach decided that as box had already been hit once then it probably would be hit again if left in same place.
All I am saying is that, if roadworks are necessary, they will be on one.network in advance.
Welcome to the Community and thanks for taking the time to post.
Sorry that you have been without service for such a long period of time and that we haven't been able to provide you with a fix date.
The MOD team are a really small team and we only get involved in cases that we feel we can speed up the resolution/fix for the customer. Due to the nature of your cases and the work that is required we won't be able to speed up this resolution.
Sorry, we won't be able to take on this case.
There is no reference of any work in one.network and BT said that they haven't even applied for permission yet. They "hoped" to get the service restored by the end of the month, bringing this case to a 2-month long outage. Franky, that's unnaceptable and as someone who works from home, I expected at least some form of alternative.
