Mistake moved back to ADSL and now theres no FTTC capacity


[link to this post]
 
A couple of weeks ago i asked BT to re-contract my BT Inifinity contract so i could receive a discount for another 12months.

After the order went through i noticed my speed had reduced. After checking my line stats i realized I had been moved to an ADSL product.

Upon investigation, BT have found that although my account is showing i have Infinity, my line has been mistakenly moved to ADSL

The really frustrating thing is now my cabinet is at capacity and i cant be moved back!!

I've gone from 66Mbps to 2.5Mbps.

I'm now in a queue waiting to move back. BT can't tell me how long this is going to take. I've had a look at the wholesale checker and it just says 'This PCP has a waiters list for FTTC services.' Is there anyway to get more information? Looks like someones order went through as soon as my line was moved off frown

I'd write a letter to BT's CEO & consider raising your problems on social media - the more noise the more likely they'll speed things up

A simple recontract should not have needed any orders to be placed with Openreach, unless there was an underlying product change at the same time.

Time for BT Retail to own and make things right

I believe you've already been advised on the BT forums that there's little that can be done until capacity is increased, or, if the cabinet is totally full, wait until someone cancels their FTTC service.

While it's definitely BT retail at fault for placing the wrong type of order, there's nothing they can do to physically provide more ports if the cabinet is at capacity. They certainly can't ask Openreach to cease another customers circuit in favour of yours. They will however need to compensate you for the problem.

No, annoyingly.

Waiting lists can be days, weeks or months. It's impossible to know where you are on the list either.

But it should be possible to move the poster to the top of the list, via the OR or Group CEOs' offices. It would restore all the other waiters in the queue to their rightful place, rather than their wrongly raised one.

Possibly an upgrade to 55/10?

So BT managed to kick you off the fibre network and don't give a rats [censored] about getting you back on to it.....

Think its time to write to the CEO of BT and request some further information and get your snail-net credited to £0 for such a stupid mistake.

This sort of stuff gets me really mad.

Haven't BT told you that it will take at least until the 13 June?

Good spot. I consider it rather impolite for the OP not to have told us that.

In his favour, "at least" isn't a satisfactory response. That could turn into the end if August, or any random date in the future we think of.

However, if a capacity upgrade is planned for the 13th there's a good chance, and that isn't as bad as a true wait for leavers. He should have been told that, if it is the case.
