Equipment Delivery

Hello, I change my broadband option from total broadband to infinity at the start of December and the date I was given for the equipment arrival was the 21 of December and the engineer appointment was cancelled because he could switch it over at my exchange.  It getting on a bit now and I haven't received any equipment what-so-ever.  Would just like some advice on what to do, I try calling BT but I just sit on the phone for an excessive amount of time.  I have no tracking number or anything to see if the royal mail have my equipment, I have searched all over the website for an explanation but cant find anything.  I would like to think I am a valued customer of BT as ive been with them for over 15 years and ive been an employee on behalf of BT.  I would just like some advice on what to do in this situation please?  Anything will be much appreciated! Oh, and sorry if I have posted this in the wrong section of the forums.

 

-Thanks

Matt

In a very similar situation. Switched over from BT option 1 to BT option 2 and was told i would recieve my new BT Home Hub v2 as i am currently using a old voyager one currently. Initial transition was at the start of december and was told the modem would deliver in 3-5 days however due to adverse weather conditions i assumed there would be a backlog . 1 month later i have yet to hear anything too

Just a quick question what exchange are you conencted to because some FTTC exchange installs have now been put back to the 31st of march (this could be the issue)

 

Or it could just be a BT fail if your exchange is already enabled :smileywink:

 

To the other guy contact BT as you should have it by now :smileywink:

Re: Equipment Delivery

How do i check which exchange im on mate? and if is up to date. I registered with race to infinity and wait for it to be available in my area, then ordered so i will be a tad unhappy if the exchange isnt ready for it.

Yep im lucky enought to be in a infinity enabled area. Anyway...

Go here: http://www.samknows.com/broadband/broadband_checker

Enter your number and postcode (dont worry its just for exchange and interent provider availability purposes)

 

Once that loads it will looks something like this:

Then click FTTC on the side:

This will say whether its enabled in your area or when the planned activation date is set for.

 

Hope this helps :smileywink:

Re: Equipment Delivery

So its enabled? :s

If it is you should of had yoru infinity hub and engineer install by now then.

Best thing to do is prob to ring up BT again (sales team maybe) and see whats wrong with your order and where your stuff is?

Re: Equipment Delivery

For the tracking number, do you have an account on bt.com to view bills and the like? If so, log on and you may find your order details there.

If not, set up an account and associate it with your BT account number (the one beginning with two letters, then several digits, on every phone bill).
