Hi, my mother's phone line has been down now for 3 days. This has also affected her lifeline and being disabled this is crucial if she has a fall. The repair date I have been given is the 2nd September, is there anyway I can speed this up. The lifeline is crucial to her safety
Unfortunately, Openreach who do the repairs, are on strike on the 30th and 31st August, so nothing is going to happen on those days, which is going to cause delays, so the date you have been given, is likely to be the earliest.
This may help for future issues https://www.bt.com/help/landline/getting-set-up/help-people-with-impairments-or-with-particular-need...
has your mother registered here
I don't know how fully the strikes are being supported, so there's a chance it could happen sooner.
Welcome to the BT Community and thank you for your post!
I am sorry that your Mother's service has developed a fault. I understand how important it is that she has a working service.

No she hasn't, I'll have a look at that for the future
