new order not implemented

I am a new business customer.  Ordered new landline and business broadband ten days ago, router arrived, engineer never turned up for booked appointment between 8 and 1 on Friday.  When I called (twenty-eight minute wait on phone) I was told engineer unlikely to need access to property and Openreach has until midnight on Frudat to complete the order.  Now two days later, status still nil landline nil broadband and no update on order. Is this normal level of service for PlusNet? Is there anyway I can know how long this process will take or should I be looking for another provider?

@Loth8 The 14 days to cancel without being charged starts on the day that you signed up.

Re: new order not implemented

I assume that is 14 business days as they have taken 13 calender days to not deliver on a confirmed order.

Do all broadband suppliers rely on OpenReach to connect the service?

Most do, with the exception of Virgin Media and some of the FTTP providers

Superusers are not staff, but they do have a direct line of communication into the business in order to raise issues, concerns and feedback from the community.

Re: new order not implemented

Hiya @Loth8, thanks for getting in touch. I am really sorry for the delays encountered with your order.

 

The relevant team within our suppliers that we need to contact for more information on the delays, are closed for the day. I have placed a ticket in the relevant teams pool for you so that we can chase our suppliers for an update for you when the team required are open.

 

I am really sorry for the inconvenience caused in the meantime.

Re: new order not implemented

this issue was picked up by the Plusnet Helpteam, an engineer was booked and he arrived promptly on time, was competent, fixed the problem and spent time tuning the speed of the new broadband.  Really done well and professionally.  Just a pity that it had to go through a complaints procedure before the service was installed.  Now a happy customer, and nothing to complain about.
