    @BTCare Yes by 3 days, I had never been told how to get it! I sent a complaint email a week ago and no reply, as I new customer I’m not too happy 😣

    @BTCare I signed up as I new customer, waited for my £75 voucher, when I went to complain it gave me a link (which I had never been told of) to find my voucher 3 days out of date 😣😣😣

    @BTCare I sent a help email through your online system a week ago, it replied to say I would get a response within 24 hrs, still nothing 😣😣😣

    @BTCare 24 hours later and no one has called. No one is doing anything. My husband is beyond upset by this unacceptable service. We just want to return something we are unable to use and so far this morning three departments and been cut off! You are a telecommunications company

  • vickiearl_earl
    Victoria Earl (@vickiearl_earl) reported from Grange Park, England

    @BTCare Kevin, this is a new mobile home order and new faster broadband. We have now cancelled the mobile and will do the same with the broadband ASAP. No one would take ownership and no one could help! Now we have no idea where to send the mobile back to! Very disappointed! Loyalty= 0

    @BTCare No I was just making a point that there are often limiting factors wherevyoubrouter can be sited. IE where your master socket is. My signal is poor in some parts of the house, 1 is 20’ from router on same level clear route. It’s a lottery.

  • LouiseBrockbank

    @BTCare what’s the best way to contact you around poor connection in my house on the Wi-fi? Sometimes it’s unusable.

  • CraigHawker
    Craig Hawker (@CraigHawker) reported from Wellingborough, England

    @BTCare For clarity: loaning me a refurbished home hub (charge me if I don't return it, by all means) to allow you to take the logs you want would have resolved this straight away. I'm only saying that to - hopefully - help you improve your service in the future.

  • CraigHawker
    Craig Hawker (@CraigHawker) reported from Wellingborough, England

    @BTCare Me too, but it is what it is. The quality of the technical service has always been great, and I certainly would have stayed if it had not been for this recent VDSL issue which support won't look at. If your processes change then maybe I'll be back in the future.

  • CraigHawker
    Craig Hawker (@CraigHawker) reported from Wellingborough, England

    @BTCare loyalty team just got a reality check. I'm sorry for the lady, but if your technical support refuse to support customers, and you ask me why I'm leaving, then you're going to get my honest response.

  • CraigHawker
    Craig Hawker (@CraigHawker) reported from Wellingborough, England

    @BTCare However, I feel we have come to an impasse. BT will not look into the issue because I am not using a home hub, yet I am not willing to sign an additional contract simply for you to collect logs. Thank you for your time.

  • CraigHawker
    Craig Hawker (@CraigHawker) reported from Wellingborough, England

    @BTCare No network issues have been identified simply because you "cannot test" without the home hub. That's not what that point says at all; it says you are not responsible for the equipment. I can provide logs proving the line issue and you can see the degredation of the line profile.

  • CraigHawker
    Craig Hawker (@CraigHawker) reported from Wellingborough, England

    @BTCare FYI: I am not asking for support on my router. My router has been working fine for years. I am asking for support on your service.

  • CraigHawker
    Craig Hawker (@CraigHawker) reported from Wellingborough, England

    @BTCare Can you point me to the specific section? I can see a definition of equipment, and some clauses that refer to you not supporting customer-provided equipment, but none that mandate the use of said equipment for the service to be supported. Thanks Dee.

  • CraigHawker
    Craig Hawker (@CraigHawker) reported from Wellingborough, England

    @BTCare @Plusnet Asking me to re-contract simply to diagnose an issue which appears - at this juncture - to be within your network is not an especially customer-first attitude. I know the VDSL dropping could be a number of things, but it is highly likely those things originate outside of my kit.

  • CraigHawker
    Craig Hawker (@CraigHawker) reported from Wellingborough, England

    @BTCare @Plusnet Yes, it was broken so I threw it away. I appreciate trying to get logs, but the VDSL is being dropped many times a day. This will be logged at your side too.

  • CraigHawker
    Craig Hawker (@CraigHawker) reported from Wellingborough, England

    @BTCare Yes, they suggested that I phone your sales line and subscribe to a new contract where - and I quote - I "may even get one free, depending on my new contract". This is a support issue, not a sales opportunity.

  • CraigHawker
    Craig Hawker (@CraigHawker) reported from Wellingborough, England

    @BTCare If you guys require a home hub to diagnose issues then I am not sure where we go. I am not extending my (already expensive) BT contract simply for you to be able to diagnose the service I already pay for.

  • CraigHawker
    Craig Hawker (@CraigHawker) reported from Wellingborough, England

    @BTCare I already have a chat going. So far as I can see your entire support structure revolves around having a home hub. Mine broke years ago.

  • CraigHawker
    Craig Hawker (@CraigHawker) reported from Wellingborough, England

    Is there anyone @BTCare who can help diagnose a VDSL issue if I'm not running a home hub? Absolutely painful. Home hub not mandated for service, and I don't have one!

    @BTCare On the phone constantly running tests constantly- it’s an engineer we need not a link we can’t access without internet - shocking service

  • AngieBartoli
    Dr Angie Bartoli (@AngieBartoli) reported from Northampton, England

    @BTCare It is simple - we pay for a service you deliver. It’s been going on since Tuesday. I think we’ve been patient so far

  • AngieBartoli
    Dr Angie Bartoli (@AngieBartoli) reported from Northampton, England

    @BTCare It’s rubbish same circular conversation still no internet. We need engineer out today- always been a customer but this is making me look elsewhere

  • ClassicalGas

    @BTCare do you have a super fast broadband problem at your Oakley Bedford exchange. I can’t get broadband

  • Smear60
    Phil Clark (@Smear60) reported from Bromham, England

    @BTCare hi, any idea when broadband will be fixed in MK43 area? Been down since approx 11:30am today.

  • CraigHawker
    Craig Hawker (@CraigHawker) reported from Wellingborough, England

    @StuartDavies @BTCare If they proactively provided the 4G-provided router then that would be useful; I can set up my draytek to automatically use it as a backup route if the VDSL dies. But it appears that it's on-demand as issues are reported, which is less useful.

  • CraigHawker
    Craig Hawker (@CraigHawker) reported from Wellingborough, England

    I don't understand @BTCare's latest email. Is "Superfast fibre plus" basically just rebranded Infinity 2? I can't see BT Sport mentioned, there's some price freeze promise, and a 4G-backed router in case of issues. But it's basically the same tech, speed, etc., right?

  • _saraax
    Sara Turner (@_saraax) reported from Northampton, England

    @BTCare any reason why we can’t connect to the broadband, the WiFi isn’t connected & the network isn’t even showing.

    @BTCare new BB supposed to be live today. Been down for hours now, read up and I see normal is just a few minutes between old and new provider so my confidence I’ll be up & running by midnight as you promise is low.

    @BTCare I had the audacity to believe BT had finally fixed years of issues yet 2 weeks later I'm still dealing with flashing orange and no internet and a crackling line. #BT_UK

    @BTCare Engineer came to my house. The internet is slower and does not load. !! I am watching a programme on ITV online that reloads every 2 minutes. 60 minutes programme will take 3 hours. This is just awful.

    @BTCare Not quite what happened .... left hand not knowing what right hand is doing describes it best! Apparently the issue is to do with the new fibre ..... Open Reach are being very helpful.

    @btinfinity @BTCare @limehouse55 BT Infinity super slow not working again. Absolutely shocking service and equally shocking customer care as they don’t care ! Won’t admit problem in EH55 we’ve never had the promised download speed.

  • Sansanvi91
    Emily Zaadstra (@Sansanvi91) reported

    We asked. We also asked what compensation we could get. They ignored us. They also removed our access to FON, presumably so we couldn’t go online and bother them/tell everyone how monumentally awful @BTCare are. 11/12

  • Sansanvi91
    Emily Zaadstra (@Sansanvi91) reported

    @BTCare once again reorganised the installation, this time for 6th November and once again it was cancelled. So he called them again yesterday evening. They said the issue was that @Openreach didn’t know what kind of line they were putting in, and that 6/12

  • Sansanvi91
    Emily Zaadstra (@Sansanvi91) reported

    Installation had been cancelled. We rang to complain and reschedule. @BTCare said it was a problem with @OpenreachHelp and said they would ring to give us a new installation date. We gave them until Monday this week. They never rang. 3/12

    @BTCare wonder if BT will ever acknowledge my email complaint follow up the numerous phone call or chats as problem still not resolved #terrible
