Shocking service from the call centre - how do I deal with a sensible UK rep?

I have been a customer for around two months.

So far the broadband has repeatedly dropped out and every time I speak to the overseas call centre they do nothing but a line test and tell me it's fixed.

Then there's a fault in my area (weeks later) and a manager called Krish tells me to call him back on a voicemail and then nobody is able to locate this guy when I do call back.

I have been lied to consistently and there appears to be zero recourse or any way of dealing with this!! please help!!!

I just want to speak want to speak with someone in the UK whereby I can trust they will do what they need to do and help me resolve the issue!!

this is terrible!!!!

poor broadband (slow - keeps dropping out), which means we can’t watch any apps or playback on the telly, video calls are poor quality, websites take forever to upload, email takes an age.

And is that just on wifi or do the same issues happen on a computer/laptop connected on an ethernet cable. What Hub model is it and what do the various lights show/do when you get a drop out?

The issues have not been resolved and largely with a abysmal service your team give.

Hence I wanted to speak with a UK representative.

Re: Shocking service from the call centre - how do I deal with a sensible UK rep?

you are speaking to UK people on here - other than that its difficult - you can ring retentions and follow the - i want to leave option - that has a good chance of getting you to a UK centre but they will transfer you to anywhere when you start with technical questions

but fro what you have said - dropping out - slow speeds - poor connection - as already asked is this wifi or a wired connection or both - if its wifi then you need to look at your options as VM do not guarantee a perfect wifi connect - if wired devices are a problem then thats different

you could start with this

log into hub3 - 192.168.0.1 [or 192.168.100.1 if in modem mode] - DON'T SIGN IN, click - click router status [centre of screen] - and post the downstream and upstream figures - to see those press on the grey buttons/boxes labelled - upstream - downstream

if its an earlier hub button is top right

Problem solved thanks to the amazing on site engineer. 
all good when a proper engineer looks at the problem, not a fake technician who is only a 1st line support call handler!
