  1. Can`t even fix a fault with their own equipment.

    i have had to take many days off work, and still the fault with their equpment is not fixed. they continue to take money for a service they are not providing, and as i have lost so much money sitting at home waiting for an engineer to visit if they actually turn up, they claim they have a photograph of my front door to prove they visited, this is contrary to 6 hrs of cctv footage. i may be forced to take them to court, as apparently a payment for a service that they can`t provide is non refundable.

    After the 3rd and final BT visit my connection speed is less than when i started to complain about it dropping out. and plusnet`s response is its fixed. i think not.

    Now they are blaming my cctv, they made my internet worse. and now blaming unrelated equipment. i have filed a case with the county court.
