New broadband order delayed/cancelled

Hello,
iam upgrading my broadband and also moving my phone from bt to plusnet
I logged in into the website to find a support message there:

There's been a problem progressing your broadband order.

We'll get some more information on the problem and update this ticket with details as soon as we have them.

[internal note]
Order has been cancelled. Please check Install Diary and resubmit order once issue is resolved.

 

I just want to make sure my order is going ahead as planned as i dont want to end up with no service.
Thanks in advance.

Sorry to hear that.

Unfortunately this is because you have a open order to transfer your phone to us.

We can't place the fibre order whilst this is the case but you won't lose your current service either.

Re: New broadband order delayed/cancelled

Could this have been done as a SIM order?

If not (in terms of managing expectations during the order process), why would an order which could be anticipated to fail be raised before the phone service migrates?

Is there an opportunity for improving process here ... with a consequential better management of user expectations?

Unfortunately not. We can't place a modify order from ADSL to FTTC as a SIM provide.

It looks like automation is trying to place both the fibre modify and the line transfer at the same time. I'll pass feedback on to see if the communication can be improved.
