Back in Febuary, we initiated a transfer from BT to Sky as we had Sky Q installed which to get the best from needs a Sky service. No problem. An hour after I ordered with SKy, I got a tect from BT stating that there sorry I'm leaving and the balance of my contract will be billed 250 quid plus. Hmmm . So called them and it transpires I had a 2 year contract not a 1. So went back to Sky and cancelled the order or Sky Broadband, which was done.
A month on, thursday29th the broadband went off for no reason. Hub orange with flashing Red B. So I called BT and raised a fault. Which was closed the same day, fault however wasnt resolved. So I called back again 30th, again fault was closed again. I called again on the 31st and insisted it was looked at properly. I was told there was a fault somewhere and an engineer would be tasked for the 3rd of April (Already a delay as it was Easter).
3rd and the alloted time window came and went without any call,SMS or any entry on the fault tracker.
I called back, to be told the engineer was working on it and it is due to finish today (3rd). 1700 I called back again, still no update. This time It was a fualt with my Hub and they need to send a replacement, 4-5 days wait. Not happy with this, a collegue had a brand new un opened Hub 6, which Is what BT were sending me. Connected up and again no Joy. Flashing Pink, meaning no DSL connection. So called them back, this time to find out that the line had no DSL service at all. After some digging it was found that the service was with Sky and not BT. Thats odd as I dont have any indication with Sky on the service, nor a Sky hub sent out.
The best they could offer, was to treat me as a new customer and setup a new line, and allegidly waver the transfer fees, from the Bt contract to the new BT contract and give me new custome rates.
Reluctantly as I had no option, took this, after all the new price was a lot lower than I am paying now.
When I asked when the line would work again, they said thats down to Openreach and I would be contacted.
Well I got the email during the night of the 3rd/4th, giving me an activation of the 19th. How?????? Its a BT line, transfering from BT to BT.
They have given me a new number, new account number, new direct debit etc etc. All not an issue as I dont even use the darn phone.
How can I get the activation done earlier, as they seem to be waitinf for the 10 slamming period for no reason. This is a software switch BT to BT. Someone in BT help us. We have vunerable children, who are home educated and rely on internet for educational material. No one in BT seem to care and following standard scripts
