BT Business not activated on date - stuck provisioning

My broadband was due to be activated yesterday and is stuck in "provisioning" when I check in the app for the order status.

I have my router and IP phone but have not been provided with a phone number or FP number to log a fault. I can't even call BT as they're closed for the bank holiday (for a business account SLA... really??)

 

I've noticed the PON light is off and my LOS light is red as well. Is there anything I can do besides waiting till after Easter to get my services?

Thanks to @SamG for helping to get an openreach engineer called out.

Firstly BT had the wrong serial number for my modem which was easily fixed on a call, but most importantly when my fibre had been installed in the cabinet it was in the wrong plot number and had also been crushed in the door and broken so the very helpful openreach engineer had to feed an entire new cable from the box to my house and then the issue was solved

Openreach optical network terminator PON light is off, LOS or optical light is red

Broadband isn't working. Check that your fibre cable is firmly plugged in and isn't damaged.

Thanks for the reply.

I saw the status lights page and I have tried replugging in all the cables + rebooting the open reach box first thing

I'm just sorry that no one from BT answered you and now you have to wait until Tuesday.  Can you get hold of a 4G modem?  Or use your mobile as a hot spot?

The 4G hybrid thing has pretty poor connection where I am which is fine as it wasn't a reason why I went with the package.

I'm very fortunate that I'm not currently fully moved into the address so I have internet elsewhere but it is holding things up. If I was stuck without internet I'd be a bit less happy

Hi mkempster22. I'm sorry to hear about this. Would you be able to send me a private message? I'll need to take some account information and then I can look into this for you.
