Can anyone help with this or suggest anything?
BT are our only option and with that they seem to think they can do what they like.
They have the marketing budget to spend primetime advertising slots and not enough to spend on the network improvemants on their outdated network that they are wanting to supply to new customers?
They also need to spend sometime and effort on internal communication.
Come on BT, sort your act out and help an exisiting business customer of 15 years.
Is there a particular reason why you want to use BT Infinity? The latter is not the best telecom product, it's not future proof, and in many cases it's not suitable for business needs.
In fact, even though BT doesn't publicly admit it, it is not really interested in the business market. There are loads of business parks, industrial estates, and small towns without adequate telecom services from BT.
Take a look at this forum to see how incompetent BTs sales and support team have become, in our case BTnet hasn't even been able to provide us with a simple quote for requested telecom products.
Sorry to hear you are having trouble with this,
First off let me assure you that BT does care about our business customers and the Business Market. We are at the moment in development of various apps, routers, and back end management in order to provide a better service for you.
As far as fibre provision goes BT has won the contract to place this, that means that we do the digging, but it is your local council who tell us where to dig. This link will let you choose your local area and see the plans on the government run website for your area.
This should give you a more accurate update on when this is expected.
Hope this helps
BT does care about our business customers and the Business Market
No offense, BT has clearly given us the opposite impression when we recently approached BTBusiness. Things like IPv6 or Annex-M for ADSL2+, let alone FTTP services, are not available from BT for most of the UK. and your sales team clearly made an unprofessional impression, leading us to the conclusion that BT has shifted its focus away from the business market. Many businesses who have a need to grow are forced to move offices because of the sheer lack of suitable telecom services, especially in smaller towns.
Thank you for the reply.
I have visit the site which goes off to 2 different sites.
The Hants gov website states
"Your area is covered by the privately funded rollout conducted by BT or Virgin. Superfast services should be available already. To view and compare some of the available services please visit the link below.
- See more at:... "
And on the BT site it states:
It can take up to 15 months from planning to go live to get an area ready for fibre.
So one site says we should have it already and the second says it takes up to 15 months to go live.
So 17 months later from the original date of saying it will be live it isn't?
So the your more accurate update says we should have compared to the 31st Dec 2014 date given by your own dsl checker?
So thanks Burkem, but no this hasn't helped and only made it worse to why we don't have it?
I think the time should be spent on actual having a good infrastructure and better internal communications than Primetime commercials apps etc.
Infinity is our only option where we are to get a faster broadband connection.
So thats the only reason?
Doesn't hurt to shop around. E.g. leased lines from non-BT providers who may have a nearby PoP, or long-distance fixed wireless broadband, or ADSL2+ line-bonding such as sharedband.
