There was a spare line hanging down the wall outside. It only reached the top of the front door where it had been cut
The engineer connected the extra cabling with Sellotape as he had no junction boxes..
I NEEDED the line at the back of the property. Well he wasn't happy about that. His first reaction 'It aint gonna happen.'
Oh yes it was going to happen. I paid for this and I should get what I want
He then rang his friend and was swearing his head off, going "i've got a massive f off job" etc...
He then left all of the wiring unclipped from the exterior wall and claimed he couldn't do anything as it was 'too dark.' Probably out of spite that he had to run it to the back of the property...
And to top to all off. The master socket was left hanging by the wire, not connected to the wall.
He left saying 'its a cowboy job but ill come back and sort it out over the next few weeks.' Really not good enough
I was fuming naturally. I took the NTE5 to bits myself and nailed it to the wall. Sorry BT, i know I shouldn't but that takes the michael.
I am just in disbelief really at how bad open reach have performed. I have contacted Sky to hopefully get someone out to do this properly. Shame on them.
