  1. DAY 46 I placed an order with my ISP to upgrade to fibre broadband on the 26th April and was told my go live date was the 6th of May. I'm still waiting for this to happen as of today the 11th JUNE. The problem is not with my ISP, who have been great, but with BT (Blocking Technology) and their creature Openreach (ClosedGrasp).

I've requested £50 to have the carpets cleaned due to their negligence. I now have to put this i

There must be some form of redress. thanks Doug Good Morning, I have noticed that the telephone line to my property (as below) has been removed by yourselves. Please confirm this. Can you also indicate why you failed to get my permission to do this and to trespass on my property without consent.
