Sounds like a typical clueless manager.
Its true that digital exchanges require less maintenance (Nottingham runs System X I think) but they do of course still require it. Like all electronics, things can fail, plus of course, so can the connectivity to the end user.

Re: Important: Your phone service is changing

so, i got a letter to ring them to arrange for new hub to be delivered, only had this one a few months - hub 4!

so eventually spoke to someone was on hold for 10 minutes, to be told they'd send me a text to arrange an engineer! i don't need an engineer, i can do the self install, well i think i can, i normally do

maybe i should have waited to 24th march, and tried to make a call to go to right dept?

Re: Important: Your phone service is changing

This VOIP service is shite, every time my wife phones her mum the call lasts for about 5 minutes before it cuts off and she has to redial and make the call again, absolute rubbish service.

I'd gladly pay extra for a phone service that would cut off my Mother in law after 5 mins.

Re: Important: Your phone service is changing

My phone line has had no dial tone for a month and I finally got around to getting it fixed today, apparently it was dead at the exchange so the engineer has run it through my broadband Hub5, as I never use the land line I don't mind as I plan to eventually cancel it.

I think that says it all about the landline service they still charge £19.99 pm for.

It's easy enough, I did it, I went to a BB only (as I didn't want TV either)
