Activation date

Oh dear plusnet. You used to do so well.
Ordered full fibre broadband in November when my contract on standard broadband was ending. Given an appointment for today, between 8am and 1pm. Had lots of messages early on saying part 1 of installation was delayed.
Openreach arrived and did that yesterday, my router arrived and so did an email saying yes, actually the engineer will be coming today as arranged.
No show as yet. No communications. Went to track my order and it says I have no orders.
What's going on please.
In the meantime I'm being charged extortionate prices for slow, out of contract broadband.
I've already had to switch mobile from plusnet as you don't support wifi calling, which was what sold the full fibre to me, what a joke!

"If access cannot be provided, you may be liable to a charge of £65 and the appointment will need to be rebooked."

Hmm...and what about me charging for taking a wasted day off work?

Re: Activation date

Hi there @Jcp1377

 

I'm really sorry about the missed engineer visit and all the delays to your order. I'm glad to see the installation is set to go ahead on 3/1/22.

 

I've taken ownership of your complaint surrounding this and left you a voicemail a few minutes ago. I'll try calling again tomorrow and I've documented everything on your account here: https://www.plus.net/wizard/?p=view_question&id=229321228

Re: Activation date

Sorry I couldn't speak to you, I haven't been well over Christmas.

The appointment was re-arranged for today 1-6pm and I arranged my work day around this, only Openreach rang me at 8:30 to say they'd be with me around 9am... their appointment slot on THEIR system 8-1pm.
So, rather than this get messed up again, I have yet again messed my employer around and accepted that.

Re: Activation date

Oh no, I hope you're feeling better now, it's not ideal being ill over christmas at all. My 3 year old wasn't well either.

 

That's an absolute pain! Are they out fixing it at the moment then?
