There is absolutely no difference to the phone line, still getting intermittent vice distortion during conversations, and very slow internet speed, maximum 0.7 mbps download speed, making it virtually useless for anything.
Nobody has been to the house while we are at home to test and prove/disprove this.
What internet speed is your monitoring system giving?

The Question 108932082 has been released from hold and sent back to BOT - Phone Faults - Logged Appointments
Dear Mr [Removed],
The internet speed is showing a profile of 750kbit, but the noise on your phone line will heavily affect the broadband stability and speed. To investigate this further we should arrange a visit to repair the phone line.
Before we book an engineer to investigate and try to fix your issue, I need to make you aware of the following information, and you will need to accept before we proceed.
If the engineer finds the fault to be with one of the checks we have asked you to do, you miss the appointment, or you cancel the appointment within 48 hours of the engineer visit time, we will add a one off fee of £50 to your bill. This charge will appear within 90 days of the engineer visiting your property, and the engineer will demonstrate to you where the problem exists.
We are very stringent when accepting and passing on these charges, and protecting both you and us from paying a charge.
So that we may book an engineer, do you accept the possibility of a charge to your account?
BT operate 2 timeslots for visits. These are AM ( 0800-1300) and PM (1300-1800). 7 days a week. Weekend slots are not always available.
Please provide 3 timeslots you could attend and we will book the appointment for you and contact you to confirm when the engineer will be visiting.

Dear [Removed],
Thank you for your patience.
The engineer report confirms that further work is required and that an ongoing fault was already logged for your area to replace a section of overhead cabling. I have spoken to Openreach to find out when the outage will be addressed. The job that the engineer attended to link yours to was actually a closed job so Openreach have had to send the case to another team for review. We expect an update within the next 72hours.
I sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused by this fault.

Dear [Removed],
Thank you for your patience in this matter.
I am sorry that fault is still ongoing, but due to the nature of the fault this can’t be fast tracked and our suppliers are doing all they can to resolve it.
Your fault is linked with a cable breakdown issue that requires overhead work to resolve.
Currently we are awaiting Traffic management and traffic lights to be arranged which allow the engineers to go ahead to perform repair work. The set date for this to be in place is currently 16/09/2015.
Once traffic lights are in place we should have a further update on when the underground engineers would be able to perform the repair work.
We will be checking with our suppliers on 18/09/2015 to get an update on this and will advise you accordingly.
However our supplier has advised the work should be completed by 17/09/2015.
Please do not hesitate to get back in touch online at Contact Us or alternatively, you can get answers to most questions using our support pages by going to Help and Support were you can find helpful guides for most issues.
This Question is now on hold until Friday 18th September at 7:00am.

can you confirm the 20 spans of cable have now been replaced by BT Openworld as per the original fault rectification notice on 22 September or are we still having someone tinkering with it because this is now getting very tedious, this fault is now 2 months old and I am paying you monthly for a broadband service which is virtually useless for anything other than email or the occasional web lookup and for an intermittent phone line connection.
If this isn't rectified by the 13th I would appreciate this matter being escalated by yourselves to a senior manager in BT Openworld who has the position and authority to get this completed.

Phone is working but internet speed still struggling to reach 0.7mbit, almost less than a third of the usual speed so virtually useless for anything other than email. Wiring has not been replaced as they indicated would be done several weeks ago and broken tree branch across cable is still causing a considerable strain on the cable a year after I reported it to a previous engineer repairing the line to the property,
Definitely not satisfied with this back and forth, its getting real tedious now and about time someone stopped sticking plasters on it and rectified the fault once and for all.
I also spoke to my neighbours downstream of our line to the exchange, and although I am not sure of their service provider, they are all suffering serious degradation of their internet speeds, but BT OpenReach are "allegedly" responsible for the cables regardless of the service provider.
I would try and get a photo of the tree branch and email it but the road is quite narrow

Dear Mr [Removed],
Thank you for your patience,
I have tested your line and can see that connected is stable without any drops.
However there are some automatic settings on your line which are limiting the speed you able to get on the line.
I have arranged for the line to be reset to try and fix this. The reset normally takes 4 hours to complete. After 4 hours your router will need to be powered off for 10 seconds and then turned back on. When it reconnects we would expect the speed to be normal again, but it can take 24 hours before everything fully updates.
As part of resetting your line, this also starts a fresh "training period" on the line. This lasts for 10 days and you may see your speeds vary a little as the line tries to work out the best balance between speed and reliability for you. You may even see that your broadband connection drops a little over this period, but this is perfectly normal.
Whilst in this training period, please make sure that your router stays plugged in and powered up continuously. If you don't then you will receive a slower speed than your line may have been able to support.
If your issues continue, then please get back to us.
Please do not reply to this ticket if the matter is resolved.
If you wish to close this ticket you can do so via the following link:  Close This Ticket. Alternatively it will automatically close in 14 days.
However, if you feel the matter needs further investigation do not hesitate to get back in touch online at http://portal.plus.net/wizard/ if we can be of any further assistance.

the attached photo shows a broken branch that is laying on and stressing the cable approx. 2.5 miles from my house toward the exchange, this was reported a year ago to engineers who attended a phone/broadband fault and several times since, the branch is still there laying on the cable.
Due to a family bereavement I will not be back at the house for at least another week so unable to test the quality or speed of the broadband connection but my wife checked it after the repair and before she left the house to say that, in her opinion, it was no better.
I will check when I get back to the house, in the meantime can you confirm if the 20 spans of cable BT Openworld said they were replacing some weeks ago have been completed ?

Dear Mr [Removed],
Thanks for your patience and apologies for the delayed response.
After retesting your connection it looks to be stable and running at the correct speed of 1 Mbps which is within the estimated speed range of between 1 Mbps and 3.5 Mbps.
Should the connection once again become slower please let us know so we can retest and investigate further, please note if the connection is operating within the estimated speed range this will not be something we can investigate further.
If you are happy this problem is resolved please close this support question.
Kind regards,

I'm sorry but I must disagree, my broadband speed before all these problems was 1.8 - 2 Mbps which just about gave me enough broadband to watch Catchup TV which we have been unable to do since August as it just sits there buffering and stuttering even on SD low resolution and even trying to connect to my office with TeamViewer is a nightmare as the lag on the screen refresh makes it painful to use.
Can you confirm that the replacement of the 20 spans of cable as notified in your email of 12th October has been carried out and if not when is it scheduled, as I am still waiting for this to be confirmed.

This is now long past any reasonable time limit for BT OpenReach to carry out and effect a permanent repair to my services so I now want to know who I need to contact to escalate this case to get it resolved once and for all..
In the meantime I am still paying PlusNet full price for a fault ridden service, " Broadband that love you back" I could not disagree more.

Dear Mr [Removed],
Thank you for getting back to us.
I can appreciate the difficulties you have had with the services over this time. I have fully reviewed the case to ensure that going forward we can get this matter resolved.
Looking into the current level at the fault it is with BT, we do not have an escalation process with our suppliers regarding phone service.
I have been in touch with our suppliers who have advised that the job is scheduled to be assigned to an engineer tomorrow. Our suppliers have had a hard time locating the fault due to a loop condition on the line, after testing at the property it shows a fault external and when testing external it shows a fault towards the property. To move forward with the fault our suppliers are assigning a multi skilled engineer to investigate this further.

So far all the engineers attending these faults have text to say they are attending, but can you tell me why none of them ever call to say the fault has been cleared but more importantly why they come to the house, test the line, find several faults at whatever distance from the house, go off to carry out the repairs but NEVER come back to the house to retest the line to see if they have captured all the problems, to teat the quality of the phone line and test the internet speed to ensure it is the best possible service for that location.

Re: Is this a UK record for the longest ongoing fault repair - 10/08/2015 to date?

Hi DaveD20, welcome to the Forum.
I doubt very much that this is anywhere near the longest ongoing fault repair Sad   Intermittent faults are the worst to find as invariably the fault doesn't show when an engineer attends and the issues can drag on for very much longer as described in this thread for example. At least you have a defined fault that is showing up under test, not that this is any consolation for the length of time taken for Openreach to get the fault(s) fixed. Depending on the location of the fault, one would have expected an engineer to have run tests from at least the PCP Cab and/or the exchange but one gets the impression they haven't been too thorough. Underground Faults can still be a problem to get fixed properly even when the location is known.
Let's hope the next engineer visit gets it resolved.
On a side note, you've posted a bit of personal information - not a good idea, also agents names (not allowed by Forum Rules). I see a mod has been along and edited them out for you Wink

Re: Is this a UK record for the longest ongoing fault repair - 10/08/2015 to date?

Nope not the longest by a long chalk!
I had one running 7+ months with 18+ BTOR visits before they finally sorted it.  Multiple d-side and e-side pair swaps, in-exchange work, new line termination box, replaced drop wires and filters - to say nothing of some improvements to internal, wiring.  BTOR however never did replace the problematic aluminium in my circuit.
Eventually I got my speed doubled, thanks to PlusNet persistence and excellent support from Anotherone.

Re: Is this a UK record for the longest ongoing fault repair - 10/08/2015 to date?

Dave,
Just a comment about the overhead line and tree branch.  Damage to Openreach cables and equipment can be reported direct to Openreach on their Damage Reporting Number,  0800 023 2023  (Option 1).  Reported damage seems to have a higher priority as they are concerned with safety.  For example I reported a broken joint box along our lane, and that was repaired within around two hours (on Boxing day!) .  The engineer was actually on his way to a fault and was redirected to the damage.  The only caveat is that their priority is safety so in some cases that first attendance may simply make the equipment safe and not necessarily repair or reinstate service.  However on the whole I think it may be worth your while reporting the tree to Openreach.

Re: Is this a UK record for the longest ongoing fault repair - 10/08/2015 to date?

Thank you for all your comments, I continue to live in hope, my main problem is I live in the Snowdonia National Park, nearest mobile phone signal is 4 miles away as is the nearest village, and part of the route is down a farm track from the house so the land line is our only communication with the outside world in case of an emergency.
The Internet speed, or lack of, means, we can't use it for any catch up TV or video streaming services , not exactly life threatening but still something the majority of UK residents take for granted.

Re: Is this a UK record for the longest ongoing fault repair - 10/08/2015 to date?

Hi Dave.
Sorry to read that this is still ongoing. Try reporting the tree branch issue as aesmith has suggested. That said, I have re-read your original and ongoing posts and can't believe how incompetent Openreach management appear to have been with this, never mind how thorough or not individual engineers may have been.
One thing that might not be helping/causing confusion is who do you pay your line rental to - is it Plusnet or BT?
Although you are having problems with both the broadband and the phone, the essential problem is with the phone line and until that is fixed properly your broadband will also suffer.
If you pay line rental to BT then you really need to hassle them most severely about the phone line issues - don't go on about the broadband to them as they will just give you the run around. Moan on and on about the (intermittent) noisy line and distorted speech and repeat that it was not a problem before August last year. Even if you pay line rental to Plusnet, the same remarks apply.
But whoever is the provider, I noted you asked about escalation, but I see no response from Plusnet in the ticket about that.
So there seem to me to be following questions -
Has the issue been escalated within Plusnet and a single individual taken ownership of your problem?
Has the issue been escalated by your provider(s) with Openreach? and if not why not? (ask them).
It's now 5 months since your original fault was raised and it's pretty obvious to me (and most others I would say) that not only your provider but primarily Openreach, have failed to treat the problem in a co-ordinated manner. This isn't just an intermittent issue with multiple no faults found. There are repeated faults being found on test.
If there isn't some immediate action - and I would also say because of the circumstances, some contact from Openreach directly to you once the matter has been escalated, then I would be considering a formal report to OFCOM.
I think this needs some input from a member of CRT to ensure ownership of the issue is taken at a high level.

Re: Is this a UK record for the longest ongoing fault repair - 10/08/2015 to date?

Anotherone, thank you. thank you, thank you for being the first person to truly see this for what it is and to see the cause for my frustration.
I was with BT but changed over to PlusNet as the sole service provider for line rental, phone calls and broadband so my primary contact has to be through the PlusNet support team and yes I too am quite at a loss why nobody there has taken ownership of this problem.having had email contact with what seems like almost everyone.in the support team.
You will see from the text trail I have asked on several occasions if the 20 spans of cable were ever replaced on the 16/09/2015 as per the information in their ticket dated 09/09/2015 but it's just given the run around. There seems to be more concern being given if I would agree to pay the £50 if it's found to be my side of the house junction box.
The money that must have been wasted by OpenReach in sending multiple engineers out to this is unbelievable and to think that we, the end user, is funding this, also the time being taken by the PlusNet tech support in keep relaying this information back and forth.
This particular case for me is making a total nonsense of the PlusNet TV advert about loving you back, how I really wish that were true
The latest ticket says the issue came off hold yesterday, 24 hours later nobody has added any further information so I presume nobody in support has chased it and we are waiting on OpenReach to add the latest update in their own good time  Angry  .

Longest ongoing fault - well I have had broadband since about 2004 and when it rains my line will drop and sometimes becomes crackly, fault in untraceable unless it is raining. There are no spare pairs in the bundle of wires coming to my house and our neighbours, the fault affects our neighbours too.

Re: Is this a UK record for the longest ongoing fault repair - 10/08/2015 to date?

The latest part of this sad saga below - I still see no real commitment to getting this sorted, do they really expect someone to remain locked up in the house just in case they decide to pop in and have a look, what happened to keeping the customer informed and working with them to get problems resolved. There is no standardisation of service, sometimes the engineer will call to say he is coming and another time they just have a look at the line somewhere and disappear without any contact at all.
As for the phone calls there is no answerphone messages or missed calls so it must have gone astray somewhere ? Now waiting on phone call to book appointment to test the line at the house,.also still ignoring my request as to the 20 span cable replacement that never was.

"The line has been proven good to the PCP, Dial tone ok at bt66 on customers premises,access required to verify service, no reply from contact"
If they were calling the land line then my wife was out as neither she or I had been informed that the engineer would be carrying out any work that day. They/you also have my mobile number and I have received no missed calls or voice mails.yesterday.
I presume the final test is still required so please contact either myself on my mobile or my wife on the landline to rebook the visit.

Re: Is this a UK record for the longest ongoing fault repair - 10/08/2015 to date?

In view of no further response here, I wonder what is going on. I'm certainly not convinced that anyone responsible has taken ownership of this problem. Ask on the ticket

Why has this not been escalated, and why has a single faults agent not taken ownership of this problem.

if you get a stupid response, make a formal complaint.

Just to add this is still an on going problem, no fix in site and 30 different people have dealt with it from PlusNet ( allegedly dealt with it that is ) - 7 months and counting - Broadband that loves you back  Grin  Grin  Angry
