Repeated bridge cases - Still no internet :(

Hi all,

 

Our broadband activation date was due on the 13th of March. Since then we have had 5 bridge cases raised by Plusnet Support team and no real indication of actually when our internet will start working. 

The latest update states that the support team will answer our question on the 31st of March.

I have tried to escalate the issue to no avail and i seem to be going in circles now.

 

The standard line when i asked what the problem is has been "there is a system issue with our suppliers". 

 

I understand from reading other posts on this forum that this isn't always Plusnets fault but surely something can be done here. 16 days and counting with no internet is not acceptable in this day and age.

Dear Mr,

Chat ID: 4296792119

Thank you for your query today, I am sorry we did not get to finish our chat. 

I have contacted our suppliers as your broadband order is delayed, I have been advised the order has completed on our suppliers system however there is an open exception that means a system issue on the order that is preventing this from being activated fully. They have advised us on the 17/03/2017 that they are allowing this to be cleared and it can take 48 hours. A Bridge Case has been raised to clear the system issue and this should be done by 22/03/2017.

Please do not hesitate to get back in touch online at http://contactus.plus.net or by phone on 0800 432 0200 and 0345 140 0200 if we can be of further assistance.

Kind regards,

Are you by any chance coming from an LLU supplier - Sky or Talk Talk for example?

Re: Repeated bridge cases - Still no internet :(

Another update if this helps to get this fixed. Here are two broadband profiles in the above pictures from www.dslchecker.bt.com. One is for a house which the broadband is working perfectly the other is the one we have the problem with here. 

 

As you can see both are on the exact same cabinet number 11. Both properties are located withing about 40 meters of each other. 

 

Again any help is greatly appreciated here.

Re: Repeated bridge cases - Still no internet :(

@Darkfire - are you able to catch this please?  I know this is not your ball park these days, but I hope you can point this to the right person please?

@DT123 - this is a BT Wholesale / BT Openreach database issue for which they are somewhat notorious on getting sorted.  Essentially two or more different databases have divergent data on the infrastructure which delivers anything from anyone to your home over THEIR copper pathway.

Re: Repeated bridge cases - Still no internet :(

Good Afternoon, 

 

I'm sorry things have taken this long to get you connected, it's definitely not the way things should go.

 

I've taken a look at the bridge case details and discussed this with a team leader at BT Wholesale, it has been found that the bridge case was assigned and picked up after the previous escalation around 10AM this morning.

 

Due to this being something we do not have a view of I cannot give you an accurate time-frame however I will check back on this later today for further notes from the BT ASG team in regards to correcting this. This is raised as a high priority issue within the BT systems and is being pushed by our internal provisioning teams with BT as a matter of urgency.

Re: Repeated bridge cases - Still no internet :(

@Darkfire,

Thank you for grabbing this one - it has all the hall marks!!!

Is there anyone with PN Towers who can hold BTw's feet to the fire on this one?  Surely they cannot get away with starting a new "48 hour response" clock on another exception arising from clearing the exception which initiated the bridge case?  A bridge case ought to clear all issues, end to end, not just the initially presented issue - or do they see a bridge case as being a "spot" exception rectification process rather than a "Let us just get this customer sorted..."?

Or am I guilty of expecting common sense out of BTw again?  Yes, from personal experience I should know better, but I live each day hoping they will surprise me!

Re: Repeated bridge cases - Still no internet :(

In regards to the 48 hour clock restart, that should not be something that occurs especially given this matter has been escalated multiple times and I can confirm that what my colleagues have advised in regards to escalations is correct and the same information that BT hold on their side, unfortunately we can only hand over the information that we are given, if this information is lacking in detail, our responses will also be the same.

 

@DT123 No problem at all, sometimes things don't go as they should and an extra pair of eyes can never really go amiss, it looks like invalid data is being sent from one of our suppliers systems to another, the team responsible for this system have now been contacted and should be picking this up anytime now, as soon as more becomes available I'll make sure you are made aware Smiley

Re: Repeated bridge cases - Still no internet :(

@Darkfire @Townman Hi Guys,

 

I have just received a further reply from Plus net support that the case has been escalated to the correct team to get fixed and they will review in 24 hours.

 

It seems to me i'm just getting palmed off every day with no firm reason or justification for the delay. The best info I have received yet is from @Darkfire on this thread. Surely if its a data base error it shouldn't take 10 bridge cases to correct the problem. I really would need this working by this weekend.

This internet is for a local community centre. I arranged it on their behalf. This problem really is restricting a lot of activities and we have received a lot of complaints. I cant even provide a date of when this will be fixed or what the actual issue is.
