This is great, is anyone doing anything about it?! 5 DAYS. The solution given by helpline is to TAKE A DAY OFF WORK so engineer can tell me that everything is okay on my side. I'm an IT guy myself, it was working for over a year but they say check the cables. I did obviously and restarted and reconfigured. It is not an issue on my side. When will NOW TV do anything about it?! I'm in Reading by the way.
We can't really help here, this is a customer based community. If NOW have identified an issue which requires an engineer visit then you can but wait for that and keep in touch with them directly.
How do you contact NOW directly ? I can't see a number anywhere nor a chat facility. According to their online check my broadband is working fine but it isn't - it keeps going on and off
Yes I did called them. I'm not taking day off for engineer to come, I can't okay. This is so useless. Surely must be infrastructure issue
We are simply customers on this thread.
It’ll be an issue with OpenReach, doesn’t help that NOW are fully reliant on them for maintaining the network.
If it as network issue outside your home then Openreach may not need to attend, but ISPs generally ask you to be available in the event that they do need to check anything at your end.
I know it's frustrating, but if you are sure the problem isn't in your home, just get the call booked. Worry about any ramifications of you not being there later.
Is your phone working correctly ? Do you have a dial tone? Is it noisy?
Can you see any physical damage on the openreach network, poles, your local cabinet etc?
Had there been/ are there any road works taking place in the area?
