New Broadband Order Delay

Hi all,

 

I ordered a new broadband set up on the 10/11/2022. It is now the 3/12/22 and it is still not set up.

It should have been set up accordingly to the timeline in the registration email for the 17/11/22.

I called the customer support general line (waited for 45mins to get through) and the operator ordered my router which has since arrived but also said I should receive an email update of an expected date that the broadband line would be ready.

 

I haven't received any update.

 

I would like my services to be set up asap, compensation for the delay from the 17/11/22 and a refund on the first months payment (as I have paid for the first months services, however what am I paying for if nothing is set up?).


Thanks

Alex

Delayed orders

There are a multitude of reasons why order processing might be reported as delayed and usually it is nothing to be too concerned about, but there are exceptions. The following are some of the common causes of orders being delayed...

  • The user told their existing supplier that they are moving and the consequential action by their existing supplier will prevent any new ISP placing orders to take over the service - this needs affirmative action with the existing supplier
  • The existing circuit to the property cannot be identified in BT Openreach's systems due to errors in their data - this can give rise to the need for special processes (ORDI and Bridge cases) with BTOR to correct THEIR data
  • Something was not quite right with the order raised by Plusnet - these are usually sorted quickly
  • BT Openreach do not have engineering resources available in the usual timeframe

To see what is happening in detail, check the ticket history on your account - log into the portal in another tab, return here and click the PN TICKET link below. Look at the details of the tickets; if there appears to be no recent activity, contact support.

Re: New Broadband Order Delay

I spoke with them on the 30/11 and they said they will look into it with a email update the next day but nothing was received. Note that this is not a move over from an existing supplier aswell.

 

Can you tell me how to check ticket history?

 

Can you also please escalate this matter with a member of staff as it has been about a month since I first registered and so this is getting beyond ridiculous. Not a good way to start with Plusnet. We just want out internet organised. Thanks

As per the above - log into the member centre then click the PN Tickets link.

A staffer will get to this when they can.

Re: New Broadband Order Delay

Hi @alexfan, sorry for the delays to your order and the issues getting in touch. Can you either reply back to this post with a ticket number or send me a PM with your username? If you need to do the latter you' just need to get your post count up to 5 first.

Re: New Broadband Order Delay

Cheers Alexfan, there seems to be an issue with the records for your line as they show that no broadband services are available to order and we know that's not the case. We've raised that with Openreach for you and should have an update in the next day or two.

Re: New Broadband Order Delay

Hi Adam.

Hope you had a good break.

What is the status in the broadband? It’s been almost 2 months since I signed up and still nothing. I hope there can be compensation for this time without internet.

Please update asap thanks.

Re: New Broadband Order Delay

Hi Adam,

Yes its working which is great. Thank you and everyone for the help!

The final request, I'm wanting to know about the compensation. I spoke with Michael over the phone and he mentioned I should be eligible.

I signed up on the 6th November and received the email that our new phone service will be ready in 2-4 working days. Then our broadband to be ready in a further 5-7 working days.

Are you able to help confirm please.
