No socket

Hi I applied for a new phone line on 3 November engineer was scheduled to come on the 24th between 8 and 1 PM and I waited in for six hours I telephoned helpdesk for BT was told the engineer visit was cancelled by BT because they say we have a working socket in the building but we don't and no one I have spoken to can understand And now want me to wait three more weeks for an engineer to call again. I think this is scandalous also I've just got my first bill for my non existent service

I'm sorry there's been a delay in getting the line connected. I'll be happy to lend a hand and get this sorted for you. Can you please send over the details, including any order references you have? You'll get the contact link in my profile.

 

Cheers

Re: No socket

Have you just moved into the property?

Could the previous occupiers have removed it?

Then Openreach will have to re-provide the line. With luck, it should only cost you about £130.
