Persistent noisy Home Phone line

I've just booked yet another engineer visit for Friday 14th.

This will be about the fourth visit in as many months for the same problem. Unfortunately, I cannot contact VM by email (for example) to ask them not to send an engineer without knowledge of the history of this.

The last engineer said that an external network engineer would have to run new cables, so I don't want an 'internal' engineer coming.

How do I contact VM to explain this?

You Cant, a service technician has to escalate the job to a network engineer, there is no way to skip a stage

Re: Persistent noisy Home Phone line

Hi Hollie

Thanks for picking this up.

There was no improvement afetr the engineer's visit on Friday, so I have lodged a complaint via the VM website, as this has dragged on for so long.

Regards

Hi los_alamo,

 

Sorry for the late reply,

 

Can you please confirm if you've tested another handset?

Re: Persistent noisy Home Phone line

Hi Alex_Rm

Yes, I have tried another handset.

The engineer who came on 14th (who had been given no info on the history of this fault!) said that he thought the cable entering my house was faulty, and that a network engineer would need to replace it. I've heard nothing since.

The complaint that I logged online has not been responded to.

Hey los_alamo,

 

I have raised this with our network faults team to get this looked into further and the team should be in touch with you in 24 hours with an update or to let you know the issue has been resolved.
