Urgent: Vital Pensioner Broadband Down for 2+ days

TreTree

Message 12 of 12

Good morning,

 

My mother's internet connection has been down for 2 days.

 

My mother is a pensioner and is struggling with her health currently. She relies on her internet connection for contact from her hospital specialist consultant. 

 

As my mother is not technically minded, she is not able to resolve the connection issue herself. As I live 200+ miles away, I am not able to go there and help.

 

Please can someone respond to this as a matter of urgency. 

 

Thank you,

 

Richard

Hi

 

Router will usually arrive in 24-48hrs, so could be there as early as tomorrow.  As soon as it's connected and tested, let me know here so we can progress this.

 

Thanks  

Karl.

Okay, thank you Karl. I'll let my mum know one is on its way - when do you expect the router will arrive?

Hi

 

It's not showing on the account, but the router is the first thing to suspect when all tests are clear, all the usual voltage levels across the line are fine, tests on both the fibre line and the phone line all show clear.

 

If the issue remains after testing with another router then we can proceed to an engineer.

 

Thanks  

Karl.

Hi Karl,

 

Thank you for the response - my mum had a new router I think 6-12 months ago from you guys.

Hi

 

As all tests are clear, and we last sent a router in 2013, I'm suspecting this is at fault.

 

A new router is on the way.

Hi Karl,

 

I've just spoken to her now and her phone is working fine but the internet is still out. She did say that the router has a flashing orange light on if that helps?

Hi

 

I've run a few tests on the line and all is clear, no issues showing. Is your mums home phone working ok ?

 

Thanks  

Karl.

Hi

 

Can you add your mothers home phone number to the private notes section of your 'Community Profile' so I can locate the account and check the connection.

 

Thanks  

Karl.
