Update on faults

Hi, my broadband has been down since Monday evening and I raised a fault using the text message (bot) service first thing on Tuesday. The reply said that there was a fault outside my property and they would aim to have an engineer investigate/resolve the issue within 3 days. I was not given a ticket reference and have yet to see any update after 2 working days (today is Thursday). Therefore can I please ask:


1. How does someone locate the fault and check the status?

2. Can one of the staff please check and come back with the status please?

3. Does the automatic compensation for loss of service kick in 48 hours after I raised the fault (Tuesday) or does the Tuesday not count as a full working day?


Many thanks,
