Landline not working in area 20. It was working this morning but we've had power surges and cuts to the electricity on and off since about 10am. Everything working again except my home phone. No dial tone and rings engaged when called from mobile. Tried unplugging and one handset also batteries but nothing fixes it. Maybe damaged cable from power surges?
Service status shows normal and test results back as ok but I often find this to be the case with issues I may have. You start off saying everything is fine but once you get a few customers reporting problems it's only then you investigate whether there actually is a problem. My phone is still not working. I guess I'll just have to wait for it to affect other people before something happens. If it's still not resolved I'll have to put my life on hold whilst I go through your engineer call-out process 😭😭😭
Thanks for your PM giving me info to arrange engineer visit. However as I expected you are now showing a landline fault in my area. It's always the same! I've signed up for text alerts for when it's resolved. What I don't understand is why you don't have internal system triggers to flag up faults rather than seeming to wait until you have a critical mass of customers notifying you before you can investigate it ? Why doesn't it seem to show up for you as quickly as it's apparent to customers that there is a problem?
Apologies Jackiecollins - I appreciate the frustration this will cause, and I'm sorry the fault wasn't acknowledged sooner.
Being honest I'm not sure why these kind of faults aren't flagged faster, I just understand these things can be more complex than they first seem. Rest assured I'll pass on your feedback about it, if you feel that enough isn't being done to fix any issues asap we can log a complaint for you for further investigation (as per: virg.in/ccop) Just reply to my PM with the requested account details and we'll take it from there.
bixie999 - I'm sorry to hear you're impacted too. Without more info I can't confirm if this is the same fault or the status of it, so I'll send you a PM as well so we can take a further look.
