TalkTalk Router


[link to this post]
 
Does this sound like BS? I have been told I need to have my pre-filtered socket removed on a NTE5C as the filter does not support the talktalk router? They want me to use the dangley filters...

EDIT: smells like major bs to me.

This is by a BT openreach engineer at my property - not talktalk customer services, hence my message. Shocking really!

Maybe the rj11 plug on the supplied lead, in his experience, doesn't contact well with the faceplate's rj45 socket.

Possibly, I am using a BT supplied one. He was so adamant of removing it, I had to bring out another router and pretend I would be using that 24/7 otherwise the faceplate would have been gone.

Guess you don't have any filtered voice extensions? It would have been a hassle if you do and he had ran off with the faceplate!

Yup - I sure do. I even told him I don't have a single filter in the house to which he replied "they are all in the original box." Let him know that's binned, he said "you've got a problem." He went and fitted his faceplate and I got slightly frustrated with him, letting him know the whole socket would come off the wall and be replaced with a NTE5 version 3 if I had to do that to keep the filter. Also let him know I don't intend on using the TT router, he said "I've let you know the risks you take those risks." The kind of guy you just wanna tell to f off lol... Best part, lines still not fully working despite him saying it would be hunky dory in 5 mins.

Probably a shame he didn't have any NTE5A's and Mk3 filters in the van...

I would suggest you ask TalkTalk to send one of their own Brightsparks engineers to your property they seem to be able to get Openreach to do their job properly
