** Issue of fault between service area and my home resolved in under 12 hours with the help of this wonderful community and their engineers  **

Good evening all,
I hope your well and safe during this time.

At around 2.30 - 2.45pm on the 21st of December, my wifi just dropped. I have run through various troubleshooting suggestions but no success!

When reporting the fault on the websitr, it states that there is an issue between the Exchange and my home address.  I'm unsure what this means..

I am heavily relying on using the Wifi to celebrate Christmas remotely with my family. The thought of not being able to take part in Mario Kart online, Kahoot or family video calls really makes feel quite isolated and very sad.

I also work remotely from home so unable to do my work for lesson planning currently either so it is affecting my work life too!

I am currently spending additional funds to top up my mobile, however this is not ideal as it is really expensive 😞 


My query is;

The website is great but it says an Engineer will be sent out in 2-3 working days, what are the chances this will be resolved before Christmas day?


Am I entitled to a partial refund due to lack of service as part of my package? This would really help towards additional data costs 😞


Is the fault just me affected or could there be others?


I hope you can help me, I don't want to spend Christmas alone...


Thanks for reading and I appreciate any help!


Happy Holidays!

@Debbie-TalkTalk @Gliwmaeden2 

I have just had a text to let me know an engineer has now resolved the fault.

This has been sorted in less than 12 hours from my original post.


I just want to say a huge thank you to you both for such excellent customer service and for being wonderful people.


After the notification, my wifi is working again after restarting my wifi hub.


I hope you realise the difference you have made to someone at Christmas and how special your line of work is.


I have been a customer of talk talk for the last 20 months and I have to say the service, turnaround and communication is fantastic!


I hope one of you can pass this message on to the engineer who resolved the fault! 

Thank you again for making such a difference at such a difficult time.


Merry Christmas and stay safe!


Jordan ❤️

It looks like the engineer was assigned to investigate the fault today so hopefully they will get this fixed as soon as possible.

Hi Jordan


I'm really sorry to hear this.


I can see that this fault is with Openreach and will be investigated by a line engineer.


We should receive further updates from Openreach within the next 24-48hrs.

Two full working days since reporting it need to have elapsed before the days of compensation start to clock up, @Zonnks.


The details are here:


It is calculated after it is resolved (so note the course of this in your diary) and at the moment is likely to take at least a further 30 days after that to materialise. 


Look for a reply from staff later on today to check whether they can find an earlier appointment for you. 


Reply to them on this thread. Any notification emails you get will be from a No Reply address. 


Check also the Ts&Cs (link at the foot of any TT page) for details of Talktalk's responsibilities. 


You can check for short term problems here:


Service Status Dashboard may show significant problems too when they arise.
