Re: Activation Day

Hiya @Jaggyjay, thanks for getting in touch. I'm sorry that the service isn't yet working, I can see your activation is today and looks like the orders are still in progress, it looks like the activation email may have been sent a bit prematurely, I appreciate the confusion this may have caused!

 

Please allow up to midnight for the orders to complete Smiley

The cancellation date runs 14 days from the order date.

If you were to walk away any new ISP is not going to deliver a service quicker than 10 working days ... and whatever BTw / BTOR issues this order has encountered, any other ISP will encounter the same issues ... unless Plusnet has already influenced BTw/BTOR to address the issues causing delay.

Superusers are not staff, but they do have a direct line of communication into the business in order to raise issues, concerns and feedback from the community.

Re: Activation Day

Thank you for your response, with all due respect, my virgin box is coming Friday, i know it will plug and play because I've had it twice before. Whereas we don't know how my bt line is, and due to the engineer not checking, we still don't.

Re: Activation Day

Ah, you have a choice of infrastructure providers BT Openreach or Virgin Media - that is most convenient.  Such is a very different and fortunate paradigm to that of most users.

As for the "cooling off" period, it is exactly that - a remote selling cooling off period allowing you to change your mind about the contract.  All ISPs offer that as it is required by consumer law.  A "Suck it and see if you like it trial period" is something quite different.

Talk Talk offer a 30 day trial period but all set up costs are chargeable (separate from the cooling off period).

Sky does start its "legal" cooling off period from various times, including the activation date.

Zen offers the legal 14 day cooling off period, but caps it at the activation date if that is earlier than 14 days after the date of the agreement.

EE's cooling off period looks identical to Plusnet's

BT's cooling off period looks similar too and could give rise to paying provisioning costs.

 

What other ISPs have you seen who offer a "Suck it and see if you like it trial period" - that is you can change your mind after activation with no charges (other than usage) being incurred?

Re: Activation Day

The latest is they have decided to send an engineer to my property on Thursday, I have not been asked.
I am not there, I am working.
Please don't waste his/her time

Re: Activation Day

Thanks for the heads up @Jaggyjay

I'm really sorry for the delay with your order and we've booked an engineer visit for tomorrow before confirming that with you.

It's likely going to be too late for me to re-arrange the engineer visit, so I can either let the visit go through then re-book on a different date when you'll be available or alternatively if you'd like to cancel your order, you can call us on 0800 013 2632 and we'll provide a full refund. We won't charge you a cancellation fee as your order's not completed.

From 31st October 2022, I no longer have a regular presence here as I’ve moved on to a new role.
