Joining plusnet

Joined plusnet as moving into another flat. As line disconnected need engineer £49.99. Chose visit for my day off 12/6, plusnet took £100 and I thought all good. After payment got told the connection changed to 13/6, no good to me. So changed it to 20/6 ( next day off ). I am still being told everything set for 13/6, a fine of £60 odd if not there which I can't be, also no definate confirmation for the 20/6!!!. Not the best of starts, I hope I am not paying the monthly fee until broadband actually happens.

Re: Joining plusnet

Welcome to the community forums @Brian28.

 

I've had a look over your orders and our suppliers seem to have advised that they should be able to complete the installation without an engineer accessing the property.

 

However I'm afraid that the request to delay the activation to the 20th did go through on the broadband side of things, so although the phone line should activate on the 13th, the broadband isn't expected to be online until the 20th.

 

Although the notification came through from our suppliers around 1 minute before the first advisor tried to change the date (So it's likely they already had the order open and had not seen the update come through) I am sorry to see how this has been handled by other advisors following this and have passed feedback on to the relevant people.

 

The initial fees cover the cost of the the first month of service from when it activates, so ultimately you should end up only paying for the time the service is actually active.

 

I hope this clears things up.

Re: Joining plusnet

Well I have just had e mail and a text from yourselves saying my order has been delayed, but no reason as to why. I hope I am not going to be knocked back again as I can't afford to lose more work because you can't do as you say you will. I therefore expect everything to be sorted on Tues 20/06 thank you

Re: Joining plusnet

Well I have had to, again, book an engineer to come here, so do I or do I not have to be here, if not why did I have to pay £49.99 ?, also lose a days work !! If, as you say, I don't have to when do I get a refund ?? I still don't understand your system it appears bizarre at best

The engineer will need access to your property to complete the work.

As such, the line installation fee is applicable.

Re: Joining plusnet

Hi @Brian28, sorry to see your order has gone back to needing an appointment, however the information we have provided you has been correct and truthful based of off the information we had from our suppliers at the time.

 

On 02/06/17 11:54:08, our suppliers notified us that an appointment was not required on the order.

On 13/06/17 15:03:10, our suppliers notified us of a delay on the order and advised that we needed to re-book an appointment.

 

Apologies for any inconvenience this has caused, however we have simply provided updates that we have received from our suppliers.

Re: Joining plusnet

Well engineer came and set it up this morning great, as yet no Wi-Fi so guessing I will have to wait until midnight, don't understand lights on on router compared to what manual says, have a long orange strip light and a small red light under it. Will see what happens tomorrow !!!!

Fix

It looks like your account hasn't activated automatically yet following order completion, I've pushed this through manually now. Can you let us know how you get on?

Re: Joining plusnet

Hi Brian, you need an aerial for the freeview channels, catch up is over the broadband (not wifi, it needs to be ethernet cable to the box).
