No fibre broadband connection since switch from BT

Recently switched my brosdband and phone from BT to Plusnet. No issue with phone switch which took place on 17th December as this is ok but have been unable to get a fibre connection since transfer. Tried a third party Draytek router with no success and have now tried to connect with Plusnet's own Hub One router which is flashing orange. Was expecting BT Openreach engineer to come out as previous broadband was non fibre and telephone wiring has not been upgraded since moving into property in early seventies. Very frustrating!

Re: No fibre broadband connection since switch from BT

Thanks to Liam in the Plusnet Call Centre Support Team who was very helpful in progressing my fibre connection fault. Now awaiting visit from BT Openreach Engineer tomorrow morning to look into the telephone wiring in my property which may need upgraded to support fibre broadband.
