Support Desk

I am beginning to have my own doubts about support.  I am still waiting for my hardware order to be placed, and considering the possibility of postal strikes, I would have thought if PN say that I will be connected from midnight on 23 Sept 2009 they would have done so by now.  Any one else having problems?  I have submitted a Question / Ticket: but am none the wiser: Sad
Question topic: Ask the Support Team - General Questions | ID: 30035232 Open
Your original Question 12:45pm, Thursday 17th September 2009

[Ask the Support Team Your Question.]
[Additional Information]
I see from the order tracker that money has been deducted from my account.  However you have yet to place the order for my hardware, which when you state that the connection will be working by midnight on Wednesday 23rd Sept 2009, is I feel cutting it a bit fine especially in the light of projected postal strikes. Please confirm my hardware will be delivered by Wednesday 23rd Sept 2009.

In addition, of course I authorise you to take for the postage and packing, I assumed that was included when you took the first payment from my debit card.

Hi welcome to the forum
I would suggest you edit out your personal details for your own security and also remove the CS agents names (against forum rules)

Re: Support Desk

If I remember correctly, my hardware was only dispatched a few days before I was due to go live and turned up the next day. I think they only despatch once the broadband order has been accepted by  BT.

Re: Support Desk

By my reckoning, your line is due to be activated next Wednesday, and your router is likely to be ordered tomorrow for delivery on Monday.

Re: Support Desk

Update:
Tiscali phoned yesterday and couldn't understand why I was migrating to another ISP.  I was very polite but told them of all the problems of slow connection / loss of connection I had experienced.
Gues what?  This morning NO CONNECTION>  emailed Tiscal from work and they refused to add my complaint to the previous ones as I was on a different email address, told me to use my home email address - that would be the one wher there is no connectionthen!

Re: Support Desk

Hi Dawnrider,
Thank you for your time on the phone this morning.
I'm sorry to hear of our the hassle that you've been going through with Tiscali, but I'm happy to say that your migration order appears to be going through absolutely fine and should complete on Tuesday.  I've ordered your router and I'll keep an eye on your order to make sure everything goes as it should.
