Problem getting broadband reconnected

Three weeks ago our fibre cable was brought down by a falling tree.  A week ago Openreach replaced the cable.  Since then BT have informed me on 5 different occasions -  variously by email, phone call and text - that we are now reconnected, all of which prove untrue.  During this time, MyBT and their TEXT61998 offer differing reasons for the continuing problem, the latest being "there is a network problem in your area, which is normally resolved within 4 hours".   It has been reporting this for the last 24 hours!  It has proved impossible to actually speak to anyone via the BT faults number.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how I might get this resolved?

We are full fibre to the house.  Our phone is now digital so is not working.  Our box displays the following lights (from left to right) - one intermittently flashing green, one steady red, one steady very dim red, and one constant green.

Re: Problem getting broadband reconnected

MYBT has alternated over the last days, from reading "major outage - no estimate on repair date ", to "you have been reconnected ".  It currently reads the former.   You add insult to injury, the temporary mini hub BT supplied to so-called keep us connected doesn't work as we have no EE signal where we live!

Re: Problem getting broadband reconnected

if there is a major outage then obviously not only you are affected in your area
