Internet Down (Online Chat advisers wasting time)

Message 21 of 21

Router's internet light is red, despite the green broadband light. Phone line working fine but no internet. Restarted the router several times with no solution. Any idea what could be the issue?

 

Wasted two hours with two chat advisors. They just don't understand the problem. Asking repeatedly the same question after while. Are these chat bots? Really disappointing.

The engineer has fixed it. It was an easy fix for them as someone unplugged my phone line's jumper and put a wrong one in the exchange box. It is sorted now. Thanks for the support.

An engineer is supposed to visit today between 1 and 6pm. The appointment was booked last Friday. I was assured that the appointment was valid. So, currently waiting to see when the engineer turns up!

Hi ruzbeh,

 

I'm really sorry to hear this. We can arrange the engineer visit via the Community, we just need to confirm some information first so I've sent you  Personal Message.

 

Please do not post any personal information on the Community, reply via Personal Message (PM) only.

 

Thanks

I would like to lodge a complaint against the tech advisor who made the booking last night! Wasted my day!

 

No appointment means no internet for the weekend as well! Really frustrating!

Message 7 of 21

This is ridiculous and unacceptable! 

Why didn't talktalk inform me that the appointment was cancelled? I had to leave early from my work to be at home! I can't do that everyday. It's been now 3 days without internet, relying on mobile internet (that is also talk talk mobile). 

I have been with talktalk for the last 5 years. Never had an issue like this. I am really disappointed! The quality of service is declining.

Hi ruzbeh,

 

I'm really sorry about this but it looks as though this engineer visit has been cancelled again. Our network team have said that it was booked as a non-appointed visit with Openreach, they then asked for an appointed visit but it timed out and was cancelled.  If you'd like us to rearrange the visit we can do that for you, just need to confirm some details with you and access times - apologies again for any inconvenience

I have called the tech support and explained them the problem. Lines have crossed. The advisor said she has booked an appointment with BT engineer as they messed up somewhere. I don't need to be at home and will be solved within 3 working days as it is a problem in the exchange box.

 

After that received the following text

We need to send an engineer to your home to resolve your service issue. To book, please call us on 0345 172 0050 within the next 3 days.

 

Called again, this time another advisor saying that appointment was rejected. I told her again it is a line crossing problem. She insisted over and over again that an engineer needs to come in. Booked appointment for tomorrow,  but I need to be home! 

I am really confused! Is this BT engineer?

Very strange. Dialling 17070 is giving me a different phone number than the one I have been using for the past 1.5 yrs. What to do please advise? Still no internet. How did the number change? 😞

Since yesterday, the problem occurred. Last morning before I left for work, it was working. When I returned home the internet light was red.

I am at work now, but can do that once I am home. Thanks.

Hi ruzbeh,

 

Thanks for completing your profile

 

When did you start experiencing problems? Can you dial 17070 from your landline telephone and confirm that the number read back to you is your telephone number

Thanks

Hi ruzbeh,

 

Please can you update your forum profile to include your telephone number so that we can look into this further. To do this go into "my settings" then "personal information" then add your details.

Please do not post any personal information on the forum.

 

Thanks
