I'm hoping someone can help me, on Friday our telephone mast was replaced, I think by Openreach, and since then, we cannot connect to the internet.
We have tried contacting Talktalk several times to explain the situation but don't seem to be getting anywhere, they tell us that all connections seem to be ok at there end, and have sent us a new router, but still no internet.
I'm sure that the problem must lie somewhere between the mast and the connection into our home, can anyone help as I'm pulling my hair out here.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for trying this and I'm sorry to hear that you still can't connect. If all testing has been completed at the test socket with 2 different routers, microfilters and cables then the next step will be to arrange an engineer visit to the property. Would you like to go ahead with this and we can confirm some details with you.

I'm sorry to hear this. The line test is clear so I've completed a radius re-sync. Please can you now try powering down the router for a full 30 minutes and then try and connect again.

This probably matters a lot, @Iggypig.
Please go via your avatar/name and settings; from the drop down menu that starts with "email" choose personal information. At the end of that section, in Private Notes clearly indicate the phone number that you see in My Account and the phone number in your welcome email. Indicate in there which one matches what you hear when you dial 17070.

Well, it's difficult to know.
When my account was changed to fibre broadband, my number was changed (without actually being told that this was going to happen).
The number that is listed on my account page, is different to one I have on my welcome email, but otherwise, yes the new number is what is listed when I dial 17070.

@Iggypig Did you try dialling 17070 from a landline phone, to ensure that it reads back the correct phone number ?. If Openreach have messed up and got the lines mixed up then that could cause issues like this.

I'll re-escalate this thread for you.
If the problem has not been resolved after a month, you should be able to leave without early termination fees etc. You need to get that agreed on record.
Did you ever plug in a landline phone to check your number by dialling 17070, @Iggypig? Staff needed a reply to that question.

Ok, so it's a month later and I still have no internet.
I have had my account upgraded to fibre broadband and been sent a new router, yet still have no internet!!!
I don't understand why I can't just book an engineer, as the problem is obviously something to do with the telegraph pole that openreach changed, that's when all my problems started.
To have been paying a month for a service I'm not getting, and to be constantly told that 'we need to do a line test and get back to you in a few days' is insulting, and quite frankly disgusting.
I think my only option now is to leave Talktalk .

If you have a phone connected then please can you try dialling 17070 to see if this reads back your correct number as this will rule out or confirm a crossed line fault. Please do not post any personal information on the Community.
