Wow, that has turned into a lengthy fiasco !

(Yep, old enough to get the Brian Rix reference)

I this has gone on long enough, were it me, Id be emailing Gavin Patterson at BT and let his complaints team add their weight to your cause.

Perhaps the granite explains the pole. One hole a lot easier than a 15 metre or more trench. Having said that, odd that the pole is in granite not nearby earth?

I wonder where the tree roots are in relation to the feed to the pole.

It sounds as if the temporary repair is crossing a couple of rights of way, so a public danger.

Soil is around 18" deep, then you hit granite. Would have thought that the armored cable would not need to be more than 18" deep. But then again, I'm no expert here.

At least they've finished now and done a pretty tidy job. Lets hope this is the end of it.

All done and dusted. New pole is a bit higher but looks a bit more professional than the previous one. At least it doesn't look like the leaning tower of Pisa.

Lets just hope that there isn't a bill in the post!

PS. Probably a coincidence, but the best broadband sync I've had for a while. More likely just the time of day I suppose.

The signal is flowing better down the line from the pole, because it starts higher smile.
