    Craig Nash (@craigjnash) reported from Barnet, England

    @BTCare is it possible to have a consistent broadband service that doesn’t drop in and out regularly?

  • tinysuz
    🐾Suzanne ⚒ COYI ⚒🐾 (@tinysuz) reported from St Albans, England

    Well we were thrilled to get our wi-fi up and running on Friday but alas it just will not connect to our Samsung tv. Despite all the resolutions given by @BTCare the issue seems unsolvable. BT forums suggest Samsung TVs do not connect to hub 6

  • tinysuz
    🐾Suzanne ⚒ COYI ⚒🐾 (@tinysuz) reported from St Albans, England

    @BTCare If we could get some idea of when it would help. You do not seem to understand just how important the internet is for us.

  • lorrainemking
    Lorraine King (@lorrainemking) reported from London, England

    @BTCare I tried but after a 15 minutes nothing was happening. Your shit service has been more than shocking. If you treat a new customer like this who is still within the 14-day cooling off period I dread to think how you treat those who are stuck in a contract.

  • lorrainemking
    Lorraine King (@lorrainemking) reported from London, England

    .@BTCare spoken to two different advisors. One said my broadband should be working now (it isn’t), the other said it won’t be working until Sept 22 which means I’ll be without broadband for five days. I was originally told 24 hours. Advisors clearly make things up. Shitty service

  • tinysuz
    🐾Suzanne ⚒ COYI ⚒🐾 (@tinysuz) reported from St Albans, England

    I think when I joked we would be lucky to have internet by Christmas, it was not such a joke after all. They say they will try to fix by this Friday. Why do I have no confidence this will actually happen? @BTCare

  • lorrainemking
    Lorraine King (@lorrainemking) reported from London, England

    @FlyMax1 @BTCare It’s been shit. I was told 24 hours now 24 hours later I’m told they don’t have a Scooby of when it will be fixed. That’s unacceptable

  • Captain_Deltic
    Roger Ford (@Captain_Deltic) reported from Welwyn Garden City, England

    @BTCare is there a problem at the Welwyn Garden City exchange? BTinternet keeps dropping out and is very slow. My business broadband account over a separate BT Phone line is even slower.

  • Rachel_Moses_
    (((RachelMoses))) (@Rachel_Moses_) reported from London, England

    @BTCare I have recently had trouble with my Internet connections. So I have repeatedly been onto your site for help. Today an engineer came around to repair my connection and he left about 30 mins ago claiming the problem was solved. It has not been and my connection is 1/?

  • moustachewax
    James McNaught (@moustachewax) reported from London Colney, England

    My iPad and phone are having an issue with btinternet, but it’s working fine on my MacBook. Is anyone else having a problem @BTCare?

  • ThatNerdWill
    Will Harrison (@ThatNerdWill) reported from London, England

    Well done again @BTCare - another fine example of customer service excellence. Web chat unable to help gave me a phone number to call where I’ve been calling with no answer for 15+ minutes so far. Paying for 50mb broadband, receiving 2.6mb at best.

  • Ankit1910
    Ankit Saxena (@Ankit1910) reported from London, England

    @BTCare Have done that. I’m extremely frustrated and disappointed with the service I’m getting. Please do send the required information ASAP

  • RuaTrindade
    Tony Coleman (@RuaTrindade) reported from London Colney, England

    @adamstokes1992 @BTCare I’ve already told them they are in breach of GDPR. It doesn’t seem to register with them. I’ve had enough of their sheer incompetence. Been a BT customer for 28 years. That’s about to come to an abrupt end.

  • raine_ryuzaki

    @BTCare internet still down in Hemel Hempstead :( any news?

  • kevinmitchell50
    kevin mitchell (@kevinmitchell50) reported from London, England

    @TheBoxingWriter @btsport Not a lot in it, I grant you, David. Fury out-thought Wlad, AJ outfought him - and showed extraordinary heart and nous. Intriguing mix of fights. But Tyson hasn’t had a proper row in nearly three years. Saturday was a spar. Panieta crude, slow, unambitious. Fury fit and fast.

  • _littlewanders
    Dannii (@_littlewanders) reported from London, England

    Anyone else seen the @EE @btsport Delia Smith ad? Anyone else take real issue that she’s kicking around with raw poultry then touching up her laptop?! Come on Del, you have better hygene than that surely? #freerangefootball

  • itsdanmoore_
    DM (@itsdanmoore_) reported from Welwyn Hatfield, England

    @BTCare Cool that's what I was after. What are my options if they refuse to cancel the cease order? I just can't have internet because someone who doesn't live at the property says I can't?

  • itsdanmoore_
    DM (@itsdanmoore_) reported from Welwyn Hatfield, England

    @BTCare The order is open but you were unable to take over the line because the previous tenants placed a cease order dated October 25th. Surely if the line is active I should get their service through it?

  • itsdanmoore_
    DM (@itsdanmoore_) reported from Welwyn Hatfield, England

    @BTCare Spoke to order management as soon as they opened. Previous tenants are keeping the line active until November despite my order. My router won't work because it's not suitable for fibre. Reckon you could send us a fibre router so I have some sort of service in the meantime?

  • symonvegro
    Symon Vegro (@symonvegro) reported from Redbourn, England

    @BTCare Please help! I’m trying to do a really simple thing on my BT account and it’s proving impossible both online and “live” (I’ve been on your web site and holding for an advisor for hours). It really is extraordinarily frustrating.

  • PeteTimbers
    Peter Timberlake (@PeteTimbers) reported from London, England

    @BTCare Now or in another 48 hours? We first called your people on Sunday. They misdiagnosed a hub fault. It’s now Wednesday and we still have no broadband and no internet connection. Can you guarantee if I contact that address they will fix it immediately? I need better service from BT.

  • PeteTimbers
    Peter Timberlake (@PeteTimbers) reported from London, England

    @BTCare We have been told to keep resetting it for the next 48 hours! That’s not a solution really, is it? It needs to be fixed now.

  • SianIsSmiling
    Sian Nelson (@SianIsSmiling) reported from London, England

    @Fon @BTCare I've literally just purchased a BT FON 24HR pass and now I can't access the network. This is ridiculous how do I get a refund please?

    @bt_uk @BTCare broadband not working, after how long is that breach of contract? On the phone you keep saying unlimited time. On which planet do you live? @WhichUK

  • Gubbinz
    Ben Gubbins (@Gubbinz) reported from Chorleywood, England

    @BTCare We've had a broadband fault open for months, an engineer came to our house and couldn't resolve the issue as the problem was at the exchange. We have been charged as according to a phone conversation that never happened, I said that we couldn't make or receive calls.

  • c_cantore
    Cristiano Cantore (@c_cantore) reported from London, England

    @BTCare No raised on the phone. Account number is GB14059520. I want to know why my order is still not closed after 12 days by today or I’ll cancel everything on Monday

  • Lucanesque
    That chap (@Lucanesque) reported from London, England

    @julia_beam_me_u @BTCare @ICOnews Yep, ex-dir here too... we’re now thinking of just ditching our landline phone and moving to mobile only as we don’t have this issue at all with either of our mobile phones

  • Aaron1OS
    Aaron Os (@Aaron1OS) reported from London, England

    @bt_uk @BTCare I just had a call from someone claiming to be from BT Tech support! clearly a scam call. Just to put it out there. !

  • LimehouseDan
    London Dan (@LimehouseDan) reported from London, England

    @BTCare Hello. Afraid our broadband still isn’t working. In meantime how can we know what our login is so we can use neighbour’s BT Openzone? Thanks!

  • COS__73
    CiaránwithaC (@COS__73) reported from London, England

    @BTCare my Wi-fi has been on and off all day now the router has an orange light and won’t connect at all. Called but was told to call back in 5 hours as systems are down. Checked online and there’s no issue in my area. What am I supposed to do?

  • SAMBeastDavid
    David (@SAMBeastDavid) reported from Welwyn, England

    @BTCare Still no LAN or Wifi this morning. I don’t care what your status thing says, there is clearly an issue. Please fix ASAP. In your contract you guarantee a LAN service at all times - so you’re breaching that at the moment...

  • SAMBeastDavid
    David (@SAMBeastDavid) reported from Welwyn, England

    @BTCare Live in a village, so have very poor signal and 4G. Can’t open link. If it’s still down tomorrow, I’ll call again and also ask how I can lodge a formal complaint? Thanks.

  • CodingHut
    Will Bryan #FBPE (@CodingHut) reported from Letchworth Garden City, England

    @Matthias_FC @BTCare Arrghhhh! It worked for a couple of hours this afternoon but now it's down again.

  • CodingHut
    Will Bryan #FBPE (@CodingHut) reported from Letchworth Garden City, England

    @BTCare Sadly the status page shows the fault from my landline number, but then gets me to login to my account which then says no fault. Can't you lookup SG6 to see what's going on?

  • CodingHut
    Will Bryan #FBPE (@CodingHut) reported from Letchworth Garden City, England

    @BTCare It tells me I have an open fault and that somebody else has reported problems that have been fixed. Speaking to my neighbours though it seems there is a larger outage in Letchworth.

  • CodingHut
    Will Bryan #FBPE (@CodingHut) reported from Letchworth Garden City, England

    @BTCare Broadband faults in Letchworth (SG6). Can you provide more info on issue and ETA for a fix?

  • ConorMegaw
    Conor Megaw (@ConorMegaw) reported from Welwyn Garden City, England

    @powerportraits @PriskMark @BTCare @plusnethelp @Plusnet I agree David. Unless they have installed specific kit in your house, I’m guessing “monitoring your connection” means checking your sync speed. I continuously sync at 40/10 despite the issues in the evenings / weekends. I feel they are choosing to misunderstand the issue!

  • nstweets97
    Nikhil (@nstweets97) reported from London, England

    WiFi and customer service on @BTCare are as appalling as each other. Cannot wait to leave once my contract ends. Unacceptable.

  • carlbob
    carlbob (@carlbob) reported from London, England

    @BTCare So it seems - an utter scandal given yahoo, who provide this email service, offer it entirely free. She doesn’t want to keep her account but does want her password reset so she can go in and download her emails and take them elsewhere.

  • Abadesi
    Abadesi (@Abadesi) reported from London, England

    Hey @BTCare I live in SW12 and my broadband has cut off multiple times in the last 90 mins. Your service line says my area isn't affected, I did troubleshooting with my router and its fine - what's going on?

  • T_Rendell
    Tom Rendell (@T_Rendell) reported from London, England

    @BTCare Bye. I hope u see the light. Short term gain = long term bad will and lack of custom

    @BTCare I cannot make calls with my landline but I can receive calls. Please Help as I have been shut out of my online account because I forgot my password!

  • pettaw
    Andrew Petterson (@pettaw) reported from London, England

    @BTCare Yes can get online using IPv4. Is IPv6 down at the moment? Any ETA on a fix?

  • pettaw
    Andrew Petterson (@pettaw) reported from London, England

    @BTCare I have no IPv6 connection since Saturday when my broadband went off for 30mins. North Wembley exchange. Live chat useless. Please help.

  • craigjnash
    Craig Nash (@craigjnash) reported from London, England

    So our internet has gone down again for the second time and @BTCare think it’s accept to happen up to 5 times daily? I think we’ll be moving

  • craigjnash
    Craig Nash (@craigjnash) reported from London, England

    @BTCare Well it has never happened with you before this last few weeks, and had never happened when I was with Talk Talk or Sky?

  • craigjnash
    Craig Nash (@craigjnash) reported from London, England

    @BTCare Doesn’t make a lot of difference and it’s just gone down for the second time today

  • smellmycheese
    Jenny (@smellmycheese) reported from London, England

    @BTCare hi, I've had a text confirming I've set up online billing, which is odd since I don't have an BT account! The link in the text to report it doesn't work. Can someone please look into this?

    davie🥓🧡💙hay (@jingo67) reported

    @BTCare One of the messages i recieved at 2pm was the apology text from RyanAir offering voucher details for our 2.5hr delayed flight. Which i never received as it didnt deliver at the time when i was using airport free wifi. So how do i claim back for non service?

  • CREADCyf
    Stephen Edwards (@CREADCyf) reported

    @BTCare Ive done as the last link told me from your collegue, renameing the other channel.... non are coming up on any devices. Its obvious that the wiffi link from device cant oick up the hub wiffi, so the problem is in the hub

  • jingo67
    davie🥓🧡💙hay (@jingo67) reported

    @BTCare No your colleague blamed local network and suggested a move locations to try different areas as i was reliant on any free wifi. All this i tried but phone never picked any network up auto or manually. I arrived back in the UK and instant network. No tech advice.

  • JoannaMG22
    Joanna Goodman (@JoannaMG22) reported

    @BTCare yes it is - I can access via the web, but I cannot work effectively like this - again @bt_uk is letting its customers down - my support call and this twitter conversation are like a comedy sketch of rubbish #tech #support #failure if I wasn't losing work time, it would be funny

  • wearenosmirk
    Joe (@wearenosmirk) reported

    @BTCare I have a complaint logged, but I've also got an engineer booked, so surely they will come out first regardless because the service is useless without all the kit being setup?

  • wearenosmirk
    Joe (@wearenosmirk) reported

    @BTCare As far as I know the previous occupants already had fibre installed, so I don't know why that would be the problem. Could you find the actual problem? It feels like we're being left in the dark here.
