Before you decide to order from Plusnet..

I ordered over a week ago and still have not received my activation date. I have received message after message and phone calls from these jokers saying there is a problem with the order, it's on hold, it's off hold, theres another problem, they're sorting it today, tomorrow, manually, it's on hold again..

After over 1 week of faffing around I have been left out of pocket as these scamners have took my money and provided no service (yes they even charge up front for their service).

We'll do you proud, dont me me laugh, its the worst providor I've ever been with.. and it hasnt even been installed yet..

Just check their trustpilot reviews, as this seems to be a regular occurrence.

Since ordering 8 days ago they opened this support ticket .....

Re: Before you decide to order from Plusnet..

@Jaxouk  Welcome to the forum.

Something is obviously screwed up either at Plusnet or in Openreach/BTw database data or both.

The very first ticket you have posted says 'this is a working line takeover'.

You say that you are with Virgin who do not use the BT network.

I do not know if this is a key to the confusion but I cannot see how both statements can be correct.

Re: Before you decide to order from Plusnet..

Thanks for your response.

There is both BT and Virgin lines at the premises. We are currently with Virgin. When signing up it asked if there was a BT line or whether I needed one installed iirc.. I clicked the working line as it should work without a new install as we were previous with openreach resellers on it before Virgin.

Re: Before you decide to order from Plusnet..

@Jaxouk So the BT line is not a working line, how long ago was it actually in use? It could now be a stopped line which can usually be restarted or it may disconnected somewhere on it's route back to the exchange which would require engineer involvement. Either of these situations will have caused confusion with PlusNet's ordering systems.☹️

Re: Before you decide to order from Plusnet..

They said they had found a working line at the premises iirc. I assumed this was the BT line. I clicked this as although it's not in use it works, or at least it did last time I had services on it.

Last providor was EE in 2018. Although I did sign up for sky a couple of months back but canceled within my 14 day cooling of period as it wasnt very reliable.

Re: Before you decide to order from Plusnet..

This scenario is not quite how you first painted it.

It is not the B&W take over if a working line. A working line is one where there is an active service currently being provided. You’ve just clarified that the active service is with Virgin who use their own local circuits and that also you had service from Sky which you terminated.

How recently did you terminate that service? The report that the current provider (line owner) Sky has a line cease order (which blocked everything) Mose clearly places your order with Plusnet outside of a working line take over paradigm. The picture is not the simple one you sought to suggest in the beginning.

Your line will need to be fully ceased by Sky, taken out of LLU by BT Openreach before a service can be activated for Plusnet. If you had not cancelled Sky but just asked Plusnet to take over that service, life might have been simpler.

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.
