I can see why Plusnet never wins Which recommended

First of all I want to say the majority of Plusnet customer service staff I speak to are very apologetic and sympathetic (Especially Adam and Lauren who I think I've seen replying on here)
- my username is alistair89

My order was placed on 20th May and the completion date was 2nd June.

I am one of them customers who's order has become lost within Openreachs system.

Just a little background, I was an original Plusnet customer from day one, I left once they were purchased by BT because after past experiences with them I'd never go back. I went to Zen and they are brilliant (albeit a bit expensive). I had a major issue with my line at my old address where there was a local business causing interference with my line. Zen were brilliant chasing Openreach and contacted me regularly to update me on the issue.

Every time I contact Plusnet on this issue I get the impression that the person on the other line is trying to get me off the phone by saying what I want to hear .

I am now more than 4 weeks in from my original completion date and to add fuel to the fire I was notified today that my bill has been generated, so I've cancelled my direct debit in the meantime.

I came back to Plusnet because friends are with them and say they have no issues, also Zen wanted £90 for the engineer call out where as Plusnet was half the price, I'm beginning to regret that decision now.

I held off posting, I don't like to moan on the internet but I'm becoming increasingly frustrated by how this is being handled. I have an open complaint and once my complaint hits 8 weeks I will open a complaint with ofcom regardless of the outcome.

I hope this is resolved soon.

@ClaudiaG23  Would that be the 6th of June 2024?😁 I guess you mean the 6th of July.

Cancelling the DD may not be the best thing to do although I understand why you felt the need to. This could put your account into default causing further issues and may affect your credit-worthiness.

Hi Mav
Direct debits do not affect your credit score. This issue has already taken up a lot of my time and I do not want to spend anymore time chasing credits for payments that shouldn't have been taken.

Gone quiet again.

I was told last Saturday my 'escalation' was pushed back to 13th

Nothing again.

DDs don’t affect credit scores but unpaid bills, whether fairly charged or not that are passed to Debt Collection agents can, and can take even more time to sort out.
