Why a week to fix?

Joining in

We have had on and off Internet for the past week, I have checked the status etc and it says they know about the fault and there is an estimated fix date of 27th March.

Why is it estimated to be a whole week to fix it? Yesterday it said engineers were on the way!?? 

I hope / assume we will be reimbursed for the service we have paid for and not received?

Could be several reasons including:

  • Additional hardware required.
  • Cable replacement.
  • Digging up pavements to get to said cables.

You are only compensated for a full outage, after 48 hours of said full outage:
