Well the 1st came and went with no engineer.
Openreach via plusnet said they needed "line test results" from the developer who of course didn't have a clue what that was but it did turn out that the developer hadn't finished some work for the line - there was no cable from the 'jointing chamber' further down the street to my house.
So I had a moan at them and that was done a few days later. There is now a black cable coming out of a duct at the front of my house and is just tied to my porch supports.
The developer claims they have now done everything they need to do and now it's up to the Openreach jointing and cabling team to finish the job.
Another phone call to Plusnet and they confirm the same and that Jointing team will 'assess' the work on the 12th, whether it means it will be done at the same time I don't know. I'm not holding out much hope.
