Landline outage 0208 ... ...

My landline is out. unable to call Out or receive calls in.

Phone the plusnet helpline they said check facebook and twitter. Did so. No updates on either.

Further investigation on plusnet web site .........  Advised to check Status. Did so. plusnet page says that phone is working. I assure you that it is NOT!!!

Tried o login to plusnets Help and support page .........

Service Unavailable

The service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.

My plusnet report card ...........

Landline 0 out of 10 - MUST try harder or else will be put back a year or expelled!

Re: Landline outage 0208 ... ...

i assume your phone and internet are using the same line?
if yes then your line is OK otherwise you wouldn't have internet.

is your phone connected to the master socket? it not, try that and see what happens.
do you get a dial tone?
what happens when someone calls your number?

Re: Landline outage 0208 ... ...

I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing problems with your phone service. I've tested your line and I've detected a Dis in Network and raised this to Openreach. We've been given an estimated response time of by 12/10/16 23:59:59. I have also raised a ticket on your account with our faults team to monitor and check on the progress after the ERT.
