But the general overall service might be an improvement.

 

BT

 phoneline.. swapped over to BT from sky.. cutting sky BB off when I told them not to.

mobile phone package(s).. still charging me full price for 1.. 5 quid discount on the other.

phone. charged me premium rate on 0845 number(free weekend calls)  No mention of a charge for it because its a cheap number for international calls (its prolly in the small print somewhere.)

BTTV - discontinued BT Sports via sky.. (after 10 days grace btw)..  thus missing the whole FA CUP weekend.)

It did take BT 2 Full days to reactivate on sky.. back on the full 25.99 price.. instead of the 3.50 offer.

 

 So all in all... not a bad fail.

 

plus no internet other than the 4g connection im paying on a rolling contract for my lads UNI studies. and no guarantee thats it gonna work on the 20th.

 

So all in all... not a bad fail

 

and your right about FTTP.... there seems to be only ZEN active, but the reputation..well , nothing much bad written about them.

@nicey1958 I see you are still keeping the "stiff upper lip" and carrying on. I admire your resovle. You can though see a light at the end of a very large tunnel. I'm sure you'll love it when you get to the other side.

How much am I excited at getting a temp ADSL connection tommorow.. 6th....   so much... I think I'll stay up waiting for the dsl light to go green (not the sky hub BTW).  that will save me on the mobile data I have had to use for my sons studying...    Roll on the 20th When OR will come to fix my fault.. or will try to fix it...   jeeez...   I could have gone on a round the world trip  since it was first diagnosed... and thats a trip on a push bike   🙂

Well ADSL kicked off at 2200 on the 5th so wd to them.  

What are the odds of OR turning up prepared and having the total possible fixes from chamber to ONT  (NOT  😉)

Great news! Fingers crossed my install should be complete on Friday morning. The dig team turned up a few weeks ago and found multiple issues with the ducting, so it's been back a forth with the dig and cable team. I still have no cable outside but they should do the external and internal work on Friday
