Amazing Customer Service


[link to this post]
 
On Thursday 11th Feb at about 08:30, I booted my pc only to find that there was no internet connection. A quick look at the BT Openreach FTTC modem and I could see that none of it's LEDs were lit. Checked the PSU and no 5.0volt output. Checked in another socket and still the same.

Shortly afterwards I phone A&A and was advised by Steve that Openreach would need to attend to replace the power supply and modem and that they would get back to me to arrange a suitable appointment.

About ten minutes later Steve telephoned to offer me an Openreach appointment of 08:00 to 13:00 the following morning! Or alternatively Saturday.

I accepted the Friday morning appointment and Openreach arrive just before 08:30, He swapped the modem and power supply and carried out some extensive routine checks. Very impressed.

So a big thank you Steve and Andrews & Arnold for your amazing service.

Thanks!

Clive

You can't fault A&A support.

But are you seriously telling us Openreach turned up on time, and fixed the problem without a second or third visit?

Hmmm... there is something a bit off with your post. Nope, I don't believe it, sorry.

Edit: /sarcasm

OR always arrive here at the appointed time ... And in one case where they could not resolve the problem, returned twice more averaging 4 hours per visit! I never have an issue with OR.

Please tell us your secret. Is there some special blend of tea you give them, that makes them do their job?

There is a hint of sarcasm in my post. My last experience of OR was a merry-go-round of hell.

Well, that's how it happened, FWIW, seeing that you doubt my post, here are the Line Down/Line Up emails from A&A to me.

You can see when A&A could 'see' my modem and when OR were testing after replacement.

I am sure A&A would be happy to confirm!

Cheers!

Sorry, I didn't disbelieve you. I should have made if more obvious I was being sarcastic. I have had far too may run-ins with OR.

I too have had no problem with OR. It's BT (isp) who are hopeless.

I would be more concerned about which brand of BTOR modem that they replaced your old one with, especially if i had been happily using the HG612 , as those incompatible ECI modem are junk, because they will bork things if you are on a Huawei cab, unless you like lower sync speeds and a load of lag
