New router not arrived yet.

Hi

my broadband is due to start on September 3 but I have not yet received my new router. Will it arrive in time? 

Thanks.

Re: New router not arrived yet.

Thanks for getting in touch @Erimus

I'm sorry to hear that your router hasn't arrived yet.

From checking your account this is due to your Fibre upgrade date being pushed back to the 7th due to engineer availability so as a result your router wouldn't have been ordered until tomorrow

I've manually ordered it for you in the interim and you should receive it before the 7th.

If there's anything else we can help with let us know

Oh right. I have not been informed of the upgrade being delayed to the 7th. Should I have been? Not good communication from a communications company! 

Thanks for the information.

Re: New router not arrived yet.

I sure will. I didn’t realise the engineers worked on a Saturday (which is the 7th)

how will I know it is active? Will I receive a notification , telling me it’s live and that I need to connect the new router? 

 

Thanks.

It's a rare sight but they do occasionally!

You should notice your connection drop for up to an hour and once it comes back you'll be on fibre unless you don't have your new router setup beforehand, if that's the case then you'll need to set your new router up. In my opinion I'd set it up now before the 7th as it saves hassle on the day and the switchover should then be relatively smooth.

Re: New router not arrived yet.

I see, I haven’t received my router yet, but I believe it’s on it’s way. So I can set it up with my existing service prior to the fibre going live? 

Cheers.
