Broadband connection


1: Seeker


I am posting here as a last resort. I'm having no joy speaking to customer service, whilst they are polite enough (usually) they are passing the blame to one another with no resolution.


Since I ordered broadband in August last year, I've had NO SERVICE WHATSOEVER.


It has not worked a single day.


The customer service keep adding 50gb to my phone contract, but it is so slow when connecting to the devices in my home (laptop, tablet, and xbox one x).


The quality of the 4G inside my home is appalling, so connection is intermittent whilst hotspotting.


I've been told an engineer should have been sent out but nobody has come. I'm a massive gamer, and I've had to make do with this substandard connection. So frustrating and disappointing.


And to top it all off, I was told that I wouldn't be liable for the cost of the service whilst it isn't working AT ALL, and I've discovered that after all the reassurances, I've actually been paying for it... unbelieveable!


I've reached the end of my tether. The resolution I want is;


1) Get an openreach engineer out here and get the line fixed / connected properly ASAP


2) Get a refund for all the bills I've paid for a service I've not received AT ALL SINCE DAY ONE 


3) An apology for the countless empty promises I've received.


I even bought my own router to see if that would fix the problem. Nope.


Honestly I can't believe this is happening. Please respond to me.

Do not pass go, do not got to jail, go straight to the resolution process.  With the evidence to hand you should also look into taking VF to the small claims court in regards to ongoing contractual payments made in respect of a service that has not been provided.

If what you aresaying is 100% acurate then there should be no argument that you have been paying for something that you have not been recieveing and therefore should be refunded what you have paid.  The provision of limited mobile broadband is NOT EQUIVALENT to the service that you have a contract for!
