22/06/16 - I signed up with BT for activation on the 8th July.
08/07/16 - The day came and went. I had no broadband or telephone line. Raised fault for both. Given date of 11/07/16 for fix.
09/07/16 - Call from BT to say fault had been identified and fix date now 12/07/16
11/07/16 - The day came and went. I chased up. Given date of 12/07/16. Randomly I was getting broadband (but no tel line). Speeds of 6MB down and 1MB up.
12->14 /07/16 - The day came and went. I chased up. Raisaed a complaint at some point (can't remember which day)
15/07/16 - The telephone line started working. No-one followed up from BT. I chased up the slow internet speed.
20/07/16 - BT Engineer visit. He identified that I had been wrongly routed to another cabinet over 4km away. I was the only person on the street doing this. He routed me to the correct cabinet (126). He said I would need to conact BT to advise them to "cease" and reactivate/reprovision my infinity service. Contacted BT, options team, fault team to advise as engineer proposed.
21/07/16 - Contacted BT, options team, fault teams etc to advise as engineer proposed. Told that they cannot help and as an active complaint, best to leave to them? Complaint team supposed to phone me, they did not.
22/07/16 - Contacted BT, options team, fault teams etc to advise as engineer proposed. Told that they cannot help and as an active complaint, best to leave to them? Complaint team supposed to phone me, they did but line was poor asked them to call on home number, they did not.
23/07/16 - Spoke to complaints team, she put me through to options team, they could not help. New call arranged for 25/07/16
25/07/16 - Still awaiting call.
Not sure I'll ever have a working fibre broadband service at this rate! Can someone please help me?
Current ADSL checker on phone line:
ADSL checker on post code:
interesting that the dslchecker for your phone number shows correct cabinet 126 so if your were redirected from another cab then records appear to be updated - it is very unusual for openreach to change your street cabinet
you can try contacting openreach and see if they can correct problem https://www.formwize.com/run/survey3.cfm?id=7214&embed
if that does not help and phone call from complaints team does not help then maybe mods will help but at present after completing the email for mod assistance it will take at present about 6 working days for mods to get back to you
Thanks for your reponse (and quickly). Yep I'm not sure when the update happened, but definitely last week it was still showing the old cabinet (111). It's weird the disparity in Fibre speed though! Perhaps something is still going wrong for me in the physical cabling or routing. No idea and it's well beyond my understanding!
Forgot to say, I found that openreach form and had filled it in today too. So at least I have that + the complaints team working on parallel on this. When I know more, I'll post back.
keep updating if you are not making any progress then maybe the mods will be able to help
Just this second spoke to complaints and she had advised I call between 8am - 9am to the broadband (technical team). This is a team that that I have not managed to talk to in the past week. I've been in the queue a fair few times but have given up when it's taken so long and still no answer. Fingers crossed I get a response tomorrow morning (and that they can help)!
Thanks Webby and imjolly. How do I email a moderator?
I've been searching around the forums to see if there was a method mentioned, the only post I found said it's no longer possible. is that right or have I missed something?
by invite only now
I have asked mods to help so they will pst contact us link here
After completing the email NOT PM then you join a queue of other customers waiting for mod help. The mods will get back to you in about 6 working days either by phone or email
