BT New Line


[link to this post]
 
Is it normal for BT to take over 2 weeks to install a new line, is there a way to get one installed quicker?.

The 2 week delay is an Ofcom requirement to prevent slamming - i.e. Tiscally stealing your line.

How can installing a new line be slamming?

It seems to be the norm... see above link for a 2 week delay in installing a new line with Sky...

That's by the same poster as here, two minutes earlier. Hardly independent corroboration smile.

Neither of us pointed out that Tiscali are unlikely to slam anyone's existing line these days anyway, unless they do it under their current Trading Name.

Business line with expedited install, but would have to be placed as such from the beginning

i.e. pay more and things happen faster
