I am having exactly the same problems after moving home. I have been guaranteed 100% that it would be up and running after 5 working days. Then another 5 working days. Seems to be the standard response. 3 weeks later and me calling the customer service line every day and still no one can tell me when it will actually be connected. BT will also charge me the full cost of my contract (16 months left) to cancel and go with another provider so I am stuck even though they are not providing me with anything at the moment! seems ridiculous...
I've moved your post to its own thread as the one you posted in is over a year old.
I've asked a mod to drop in and offer assistance.
Welcome to the Community and thanks for your post!
Sorry for the delay connecting services at your new address. 3 weeks is a long time given the fact you were told that the services would be activated in 5 working days. It's difficult to say exactly what the issue is without seeing the order. Could you send me over the details and we'll get back to you?

did you take up mod offer of help and complete the form? if you have then you have now contacted a BT employee and they will help but they reply in order forms received to ensure customers are treated equally so may be 2/3 days till mods contact you
Have you moved into a brand new home on a new development ? , in a small number of cases, there is a delay providing service to new builds, this could be a deveopler issue ( not providing the ground works in time , ducting, jointboxes etc), or could be Openreach have not provided the 'network' to the development in time , or could be a combination of the two, but you would be having the same issue if you had ordered service from another provider , like Talk Talk , or Post Office....is it even possible that Openreach have been locked out of the site because the deveopler has a sweetheart deal with another network ?...( assuming of course that it's a new build property) ...
If your issues are not related to this, has this (older) property ever had service in the past ?
Although not an excuse for misleading information from a customer service rep, the way the regulator wants the industry managed ( when it comes to Openreach) is for you to speak to a 'CP' and for the 'CP' ( communications provider) to speak to Openreach , not allowing you to speak to OR directly, so always the possibility that you are not getting the full picture as to what the problem is.
The previous tenant had BT fibre and even left me their BT hub. They moved out 1 week before I moved in.
Its possible that the fibre cabinet is full, and you are on a waiting list? The connection that the last tenant had, would have been ceased and given to someone else. You will have to see what one of the moderators say.
