Description: FAULT - Dis one leg in Network
Tried to raise fault again and worked this time.
I'm sorry for the delays with the repair of your phone service. The Openreach engineers report that they expect to check the line on 01/10/14
WHATHuh? Over 1 week to check a connection in a box reported with its cover open!  Are they completely bonkers?  I could understand if there was a time required to repair, but this is to check the fault.  This is totally unacceptable service in modern technological days.  No wonder this country is having issues, when basic checking takes so long.

Re: Why does it take so long

Hi Taffyman,
I'm really sorry to hear about this.
This is partly attributed to our suppliers system's not properly receiving our fault report.
It shouldn't have taken this long, and it's rare when it does.
Hopefully it'll be the sooner side of the week.
