Whole village and surrounding villages all afftected by this still! I went to BT speedtester this morning and it said my download speed was
Download speedachieved during the test was - 108 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 600-7150 Kbps.
Your DSL Connection Rate :8128 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 7150 Kbps
freeola suggest that I change my filters again (this was done within the last 2 months ) but ever the sucker I changed them all again, still no luck! should all the village change their filters? do you think that would help?
Hang on its nearly 8.30 the call centre is almost open, think all phone and take up the offer of an engineer call out and risk the £60 fee because clearly some thing is far wrong here even though BT wont admit that to Freeola, like I said we have been here before
It will always be the case that some people will report issues before they are officially picked up by BT. The fact remains that when diagnostics were run on your line there was no fault flagged up. It is possible that when other ISP's reported a similar issue to BTW they chose to run on-site testing and found a potential cause (This, I believe was also explained to you during one of your telephone conversations). If you had accepted the engineer visit, it is likely that he/she would have picked up this issue before another ISP.
No 'apology' will be forthcoming from BT Wholesale as none is required. Standard practises were followed by ourselves, our Wholesalers and BTW.
A think what am looking for (no matter how long it takes) is an apology from BTW for them misleading you guys, I know that you all put in a lot of hard work those couuple of days, but from a customers point of veiw, it looks like to me that had it not been for a BT customer phoning in then this fault could still be a fault, yet BTW would still have ben saying there is no fault
From reading back through this entire thread, there is no information that hasn't already been shared that would need to be repeated. The likely reason that nobody has replied to this thread is because there is nothing else we can add that hasn't already been stated, further needlessly 'bumping' a resolved issue up the forum thread list.
Can you tell am still not best pleased with the lack of answers
Did you ever get any feedback on this?
There was mis information then and yes your right I did contacty the support manager but that was about deleting forwarding on my account nothing to do with this outage that our village had, the report that Hmmm refers to is available on on the internet it reads ....

the forums is as good a place as any to air this issue as other cutomers may well experiance the same problems that i did, in that the whole village and surrounding area were on poor and at times no service, repeated tests and calls from me to you and by freeola to BTW proved fruitless, yet calls from BT customers were being told there was an issue and then action was put in place to resolve the issue. Now that message above states clearly there was a MAJOR SERVICE OUTAGE - I do think there has been an information breakdown some where.

Sorry to be a pain Butch but please see my earlier post - there was a BT MSO for a Degraded service for Digi's exchange.
If you look at his exchange history you can see the details.
For what it is worth, BT Wholesale did not open an MSO in your area during this period, there was no 'mis-leading' taking place by them, or anybody else for that matter.
