knock at the door 1pm BT Openreach.
The holding box on the pole was totally flooded.the guy got the line working for all of 5 mins and it went again.there was a break in the cable that was situated on the house just off the pole..then he found a 2nd split on the cable as it enters the house (into the wall).Just as he thought everything was okay something was still wrong so he pulled off the wiring the BT installer had done and found a Staple right through the wire he had installed.
finally everything came back on and just as he was leaving the phone went dead and ADSL went off again.Hes totally baffled but asked me was it okay if he comes back later in the week which I didnt have a problem because at least we have the phone back and could access the 1571 messages etc.
It seems more an ADSL issue at the ,moment.
but all in all he arrived at 1pm was leaving 5:30,
