Re: Internet Dropouts

Upstream is all out of spec! - I would postulate that this needs VM to book a technician!

You've got 2 options:

1: Wait for forum staff to pick it up - could be a day or so
2: Call it in on 150 or 0345 454 1111 as a fault
It'll ask you to reboot the hub (as you already have done - don't)
You will then be cut off
Wait a couple of minutes
Call 150 again - report a broadband fault - The system will recognise that you called before and transfer you to a person!

Re: Internet Dropouts

tried phoning and got a automated message to say they know about the issue. Funny thing is there service status page says they are no issues. If that was up to date, it would have saved a day of stress.

 

Thanks for the help. 🙂

Re: Internet Dropouts

As to what could cause it - COuld be any number of reasons really:

1. Exposed cables
2. Water ingress
3. Failing equipment in the Cabinet
4. Customers replacing co-ax with poorly shielded alternatives

Did the automated message say when the fix time was?

Re: Internet Dropouts

Nope just that it was a complex issue. I guess its water. We have a open cabinet near by and it rained cats and dogs last night.

Re: Internet Dropouts

As well as trying the “check service,” Area status webpage" (link at top right of this forum), also try the “free & automated” Service Status number - 0800 561 0061 - which usually gives the most up to date info. and tells you of more local issues down to postcode level. These may not be listed on the Area Status web page (Areas are not “Geographic” they are billing areas) as that usually only covers faults affecting 1000’s of customers) so phone may give you more info, but even that wont cover problems affecting just a few customers.

Re: Internet Dropouts

Hi @delaneya,

 

Welcome to our Community Forums. Thank you for your post and I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing some issues with your connection.

 

I was able to locate your online account and can see that there is currently an SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio) outage active in your area.

 

This outage is estimated to be resolved on 14/07/21 at 18:00. 

 

Please keep an eye on your connection and reboot your equipment after this time.

 

Let us know how you're getting on.

 

Thanks,

Paulina_Z
