Fair enough - that's your privilege.
Frankly, I wonder whether what is said on here, carries the full official weight of an authorised statement by BT ?
It may be that mysterious "Helping hands" stretch across the telecomms water into BT's offices and influence problem outcomes for the better, but frankly, the main Broadband problem resolution processes I've encountered so far haven't filled me to over-brimming with confidence, and are probably best left alone - too many chefs.
At the moment, the fault is just a nuisance and probably difficult to diagnose. So, I'll wait and perhaps it will develop to full failure mode, in which, case diagnosis will be obviou, the ball will be firmly with BT or Openreach and I won't have the burden of getting involved in their turf disputes or run the risk of being charged for something which is their joint system responsibility.
My understanding is that after a broadband fault has been registered for 10 days and hasn't been addressed, that Open Reach have to tackle it. No need for me to put in an engineer request.
Here are today's hub stats using the Smart Hub 2 with the phone disconnected:-
First off with the Cat 6 cable from the hub inserted in the test socket in the wall master socket:-
Secondly, with a Cat 6 cable from the hub inserted into the Faceplate:-
As can be observed, there's no difference at all between the Noise margin figures whether the connection from the hub is inserted into the Test socket or the Hub.
BT and OpenReach do your respective jobs.
I don't need to get involved in this process as the "Fault" appears to be coming from the Network outside my home. I'm not playing Supermarket broadband pick-and-mix.
Expect updates on here every 3 days until it gets fixed.
sorry but if you want it fixed you need to report the fault to 151 sitting back and waiting and hoping Santa comes will not work report the fault if as you say fault outside your home then there is not going to be a charge anyway
the speed and noise margin are unchanged by changing connection because you are in a banded profile however if you continue to reset router then your speed will get even slower and noise margin even higher
Secondly, I can see no point in calling the phone engineers i.e. the metallic pathway custodians when the on-line BT Troubleshooter reports that the landline is OK and that it is a Broadband problem i.e. OpenReach.
Further, the fault report I logged on the 18/10/2019 includes the results of Tests, performed on-line by BT, that point to BT's Retail Servers as being the cause of the problem ? :-
I suppose the ball is with BT Retail, who I understand are automatically informed (On the 18/10/2019) and will no doubt respond according to their performance standard - even by steam railway standards, I would have thought a fortnight is sufficient for BT Retail to get in contact and resolve this.
Incidentally, I noticed today, when using the BT on-line troubleshooter for broadband diagnosis, that it no longer allows me to progress the troubleshooting process to the point where I canrequest an engineer on-line . . .the button to do this is greyed-out, is that another feature of DLM, yourself or our dear dear colleagues of greed and chaos at BT Retail ?
That's strange, the first line of my previous post went missing between "Send" and "Receive". - for the record it said that the on-line BT Troubleshooter test results that I initiated reported that the landline was OK.
And there's me with 13 years commercial experience in a public authority purchasing department thinking that someone was trying to apply pressure in issues relating to service delivery in order in order to secure commercial advantage. Tush, Tush, Tush.
Unfortunately, BT's customer handling process in these circumstances leaves them totally in the dark as to what is going on, so when confronted with a new commercial proposition, they are always left on the back foot - straight out of ol' transatlantic Orangina's playbook. Who would have guessed. But something to much on for the regulator.
Why are you continuing to post, you clearly have no interest in resolving any fault you may have and just want to whinge.
Obviously, BT regard all their Retail Customers as the anti-thesis of the "Intelligent customer" i.e. Dumb as Fook.
Only posting to illustrate the dreadful, off-hand way they treat their customers - the antithesis of "Customer Service".
