Hi all, Looking for any help with this.
I ordered BT Infinity package on the 31st of January (Moved to Scotland recently so first time ordering)
Said activation day was on the 7th of Febuary, that day past and my BT Smart Hub is still flashing Purple ever since.
My telephone works perfectly, can recieve and call no problem.
I have had 2 engineers here already, and BT Said they will be sending another one tomorrow.
I have also had another BT smart Hub sent to me and that still flashes purple.
As you can see, I have 2x NTE5 sockets, I have tried possibly every scenario with these 2 sockets, (The one on the left, engineer said I must use, my telephone only works on the one on the left) - The one on the right I have tried also, with test sockets also.
Solved! Go to Solution.

did engineers give any reason for 2 NTE5 master sockets? 2 lines at one time? if tomorrows engineer does nor solve internet connection then post back and we can see if mods can help
Apart from a possible provisioning issue or faulty port at the cabinet, I cannot see anything wrong. It would have failed the commissioning test, which is why you are getting another visit.
Is there any other equipment between the incoming line, and that working master socket?
Is this a new property?
So is it a new build?
Have you tried a different microfilter, as two are normally provided with each home hub?
Thre should have been more than one supplied with the BT home hub. The microfilter passed the broadband straight through, it only filters the phone side.
If its an old building, there may have been a old DACS unit installed somewhere, to give an extra line. If that has not been removed, then broadband will not work.
Does your phone line come from a pole, or underground?
