Re: Get My Line Restored!!!!!!!!

Moderators are customers, just as you are, they don't work for PN. They are trying to help and are unpaid volunteers, so why are you complaining about them?
Hopefully by making your post more readable it will get some attention from PN staff.  Wink

Re: Get My Line Restored!!!!!!!!

Hi Horseygrin,
The mods on this forum (who are also customers) are here to do jobs like that.
I'll do my best as a staff member to help out with your issue and make sure we're doing all we can to resolve it quickly.
I'm sorry if the updates on the ticket haven't been clear, I need to take some time to go over exactly what's happened.
I'm doing that now and will be in touch again to discuss how we can move beyond this and get you connected ASAP.

Re: Get My Line Restored!!!!!!!!

I have to leave the café now as my parking has run out... please update me on my mobile phone as I have to return home where there is obviously no service. Thanks. I know people are tutting about my post but... walk a mile in my shoes.., not the first set of problems I have had with plusnet. Shall I even bother mentioning the 15 + minutes everybody waits as a minimum to speak to somebody? No though not. Setting this little change of house up took 55 minutes. At least I didn't pay for the call that time. Now all my calls are costing me a fortune on my mobile... who will recompense me?

Re: Get My Line Restored!!!!!!!!

Adam,
You seem to beiong pulled from pillar to post. How are you managing to focus on all our problems at once (assuming you have many more who do not post in the forums). Are you the only guy in support ?
Horsygrin, I've got your old shoes and I am currently walking a marathon in them. You have my sympathy.

Adam is part of the Digital Care team, a small group of people dedicated to the forum, Facebook and Twitter.
They are backed up by a much larger support department who man the phone lines.

I was trying to be helpful by explaining what you were complaining about as you seemed to misunderstand some things.
This is a public/customer forum which is mainly there for customers to help each other. Private communications restricted to staff go by other routes.
I suggest you consider that and accept help when and where it is offered.  Cool

Re: Get My Line Restored!!!!!!!!

Sorry Strat but Adam kind of implies that he is in a position to do something about our problems. If this is not the case then his comments are a little misleading. Interesting that the "small" digital car team can respond so quickly and the "larger" support team take an age and then put the call on hold. Maybe Adam would be better placed in the "larger" support team as his posts suggest he is very keen to be helpful if not empowered as such.

I know it's not just the calls to Plusnet, but if your mobile is not contract, when calling Plusnet you may find that 0345 140 0200 is cheaper than 0800 432 0200. If you are on contract the 0345 will almost certainly be cheaper. See the note of the bottom of the residential support section: http://www.plus.net/home-broadband/contact/

My impression is that the Digital Care Team is drawn from amongst Plusnet's most experienced and diplomatic support staff.  They have always done a good job for me when I have approached them for help via this forum.  Although they sometimes respond quickly they mostly work just the normal hours of a working day and must spend  fair bit of time following-up on things they committed to do and probably other matters too - so if you got a very rapid response you were a bit lucky.  I'm absolutely sure Adam (or any other DCT member) is able to do as much as anyone in Plusnet can to address our problems.

Simply put it's my job to do so.
I'm not claiming to be able to deal with mulitiple issues at the same time but I have the time and resources to deal with a numerous issues including yours and horseygin's today siddo.
with that in mind and as promised I'll be back in touch with both of you before the end of today and rest assured if I have any problems managing the amount of work I have I'll be asking for help from my team mates.
