My activation date was yesterday, I had the openreach engineer come twice as after my activation/now online email from talktalk I was still not connected. I am a new fibre customer. The engineer said that everything was set up fine on his end that his internet connection at the cabinet was good. Can it be that talktalk you have not updated to point my authentication to your fibre broadband server?

I have done no, so can co firm this is updated.

 

The openreach engineer called me again to explain that the situation lies with TalkTalk as all his tests came out fine. This is incredibly urgent as I work from home some days of the week and so this is affecting my ability to do my job.

Thanks!

I remember when moving to Gravesend that BT had issues with pointing the services in the main hub, could that be it?

Or did the openreach engineer install it to the wrong house?

Hi sapvdf

 

Our Network Team have advised that a further BT Openreach engineer visit has already been arranged. Did you arrange this visit with our Faults Team?

 

Everything is showing correctly set up on our side. Our Network Team have left specific notes for the engineer of checks to complete when they visit.

 

Thanks

I did indeed. How is this if the openreach engineer who visited myself said everything was set up fine on their end?

Hi sapvdf

 

Our Network Team have advised that another engineer visit is required and they have asked the engineer to check for specific things and run different tests on this visit.

 

Thanks

Hi there, I just logged into my account as I have not received a notification from openreach for the visit and it says:

"Your go live date:
Before you can go live you need to re-book your appointment.

Please call our team on 0345 172 0088 to re-book"

Has the openreach engineer not been booked for today?!
