Re: Internet connection barely usable

Sorry Nicola but hopes have long since vanished and patience is wearing incredibly thin now.

The review date for F004952644 was brought forward from 9/8/17 to 26/7/17. I said three weeks ago the revised date was encouraging (said with a pinch of scepticism).
I guess my scepticism was spot on.

I have had to use mobile broadband this evening to access the forums. The internet has been on and off intermittently and then down completely for the SECOND TIME this week due to "network problems in the area". 

It really is about time you got these problems sorted once and for all.

It looks like I have to update my own thread now!!

That will be four years and two months and still counting !!!!

What is it that is so difficult for them to upgrade in the area? My issue in Golborne has been resolved many months ago. That was a relative simple lit of work for them, so it's bizarre the amount of time it took. Have you had no further explanation?

Its either total disrespect for customers or incompetence - could be a bit of both?

Its certainly not a lack of money.... boasting now about the one millionth V6 customer.... Assuming an average of £45 per month per customer.... well, you do the math!

Re: Internet connection barely usable WN3 F004952644 (formerly known as F002896495)

hi @ian-c
I've been following your thread quite a while now, have you approached any of the regulators about this or CISAS? They require you wait 8 weeks to give the ISP a chance to do something - which clearly over 4 years they've repeatedly refused to do, not a lack of time, that to me stinks of refusal.
With a story such as your's I'm surprised you haven't been in touch with your local MP! I have with the 4 that represent my area, 1 has replied thus far said that he read through my email however saw my address I'm just outside of his area (god knows why the parliament website listed him then!) so was sorry that he wasn't able to help. But with 4 years of evidence that would give any self serving politician alot of ammo to make alot of noise publically with....and hopefully they'd also be able to address the problem of VM shipping defective hardware 2 years after they were notified it has issues!
