I recently moved to a property which does not yet have a fibre connection.
After trying to move our existing package to this new address, my partner was told that there was some sort of issue and instead we were sent a Hauwei mobile internet device.
We both work from home and this area doesn't seem to get a very good 4G signal, so it has been less than ideal for conference calls and impossible for large file transfers.
After ringing support in an attempt to get things moving, I was told that our previous account has been cancelled and I need to provide a different account number and security password. We have not been sent either of these things, so I can no longer manage our account.
Unfortunately our new landlord seems nervous about any sort of modifications to the property. They have approved us getting fibre installed here, however only if they are informed of where in the property it will be installed, we provide photos before and after it is installed, and apparently we must get it professionally removed when we leave.
So all in all, a real mess of a situation.
My questions are:
- Is anyone able to help with managing this situation, as I don't have any details about this new account that has been created?
- Is it possible for us to have an engineer visit the property to discuss where the cable will be installed BEFORE any work is carried out?
- Is it even possible to have a line removed from a property when we leave (I imagine I can convince the landlord of the value of it remaining, but just in case)?
Thanks in advance, this is turning out to be a real headache!
