Return of Equipment

Go to solution

I recently had fibre broadband installed.  Since then I have been constantly harassed to return equipment (the  router according to my online account).  But if I do return it I don't understand how the system can operate as the engineer plugged it into a socket (ONT) on the wall.  What on earth is going on - or have I missed something?

@Harryo1 

Did you already have an existing BT Home Hub from an earlier BT Broadband package?

Thak you for the quick response.  The answer is "yes".  Maybe I should have been given a new router?

So you used your existing BT Smart Hub, was it a Smart Hub 2?

Yes it was - I've just checked.  But this is the one that they want back, according to my account.

That does seem a bit odd. Did you request a phone service (BT Digital Voice), as they would normally send a Smart Hub 2 as part of the order, as its needed for a phone service?

I understood that there was no option but to take digital voice as the existing landline was to be made inoperable as a consequence of moving to fibre. But from what you say, I wonder if BT assumed that a new router has been provided and they automatically chase for return of the old one.  I did intend to ignore the demands for return but I don’t now think I should or could.  It seems that there is no e mail address for BT which I can use as every request  from them says something like “don’t reply”.  Which, from a communications company is pretty ironic, particularly as, when I call, I keep getting told how busy they are and please try online.
