Line activation

Hello, 

 

I just had a notification telling me my phone line has been activated, does this mean my broadband is also ready to use?

 

Thanks

 

Al

Hi there, first of all a warm welcome to the community forums.


I can confirm your fibre order is still on track for today.

 

You'll receive a seperate automated email once it's ready to use.

It can happen any time up to midnight, although usually happens before then.

Re: Line activation

@kaledis - It looks like there's a delay with your order due to an open exception on our suppliers systems. We're working to get this resolved ASAP. I apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Re: Line activation

That's my point, what does 'open exception' actually mean in real world terms? Is it damaged cabling? engineer availability to send to the cabinet to connect the wires? Problems with supplying a service because of a previous tenant? 

And if I contacted support on 18th, why was a told that I wouldn't get an update until the 23rd? a further 5 days later? 

This is just absolutely ridiculous. 

 

OP sorry for hijacking your thread.

Re: Line activation

It's essentially a system problem, that your order is stuck within our suppliers system.

Re: Line activation

But I still have to wait until Thursday to find out when I might actually get activated, if ever?

Re: Line activation

That's the lead time we've been given by our suppliers I'm afraid.

Re: Line activation

So if I get to Thursday (20 days after I placed the order) and I am told that I have to wait till god knows when. Will I be able to cancel my order?

 

an over 20 day wait to get internet is completely unacceptable.
