Welcome to the community forum. I'm sorry to hear that your order has been delayed. If you send me in your details, I'll be able to take a look at what is happening with your order.
You can send me in your details using the "Contact The Mods" link found in my profile.
The Twitter team on BTCare have stopped replying to my enquiries, as after their false promises of the service being connected, it surprisingly (cough) was not.
I am paying for services which are not being provided, and BT seemingly has no intention of ever providing them, just making false appointments with Openreach to do the fibre connection work at the cabinet which are not being attended nor honoured in the slightest.
Literally a minute after I posted my previous reply the BTCare team finally replied!
And they have no update for myself whatsoever, and they will not answer my questions, these being:
1) Why do I keep being lied to about my activation date?
2) Why are you taking orders you clearly cannot fulfil?
3) Why is Openreach making these false promises of sending out an engineer to the cabinet to do the work when their enginer is clearly happier sitting on his **bleep** and not doing anything, with zero accountability?
Thanks for posting back!
Sorry for the delay connecting your broadband. I have checked our email queue and we have received your details.
We deal with cases strictly in turn as we receive them so as soon as you reach the top of our email queue one of the guys will give you a shout to help sort everything out.
That's funny, I didn't e-mail anyone. I filled in a form (the one I was directed to by the customer service person who previously replied in this thread), but I have not sent any e-mails about this.
I am also posting here as a record of what has taken place so far, and anything which may happen in the future.
Here is BTCare's reply to my questions above:
"All of our orders are subject to survey. This means that while we're able to connect most of our customers on the date they've requested, this isn't always possible. There are a number of reasons an order can take longer than expected. I don't have any information right now on why the order was delayed yesterday. We rely on our suppliers to attend appointments when they're booked and provide updates for us when an order is delayed. Unfortunately some orders are not as straightforward as others, I'm sorry you've experienced problems with this one ^Paula"
Which amounts to nothing more than a blatant fob-off by your customer service staff, and they have still not answered my questions.
I am now also being told by them that they have apparently answered my questions, which they have not.
Is the actual solution to just cancel my order and go with another provider?
The form you filled in is what the moderator is referring to when he said email. It is an online email form.
The moderator will get back to you and will answer your questions and hopefully resolve your problem. I would suggest that you leave it to them and don't contact Customer Services again.
"I would suggest that you leave it to them and don't contact Customer Services again."
Would you mind explaining why? Are you implying that Customer Services will not help me, or is this some kind of thinly-veiled threat that there will be consequences should I contact Customer Services again?
