“So many times I hear people say “But they told me my Broadband will only work in a Main Socket, and not an extension”..
Absolute rubbish – Providing that you don’t have any faults on your telephone extension sockets or telephone wiring, you will get Internet connection where ever your Router is plugged in, unless you have a BT Digital Filter Front Plate fitted.

Some people are so fed up with Call Centres that by the time they discover a local Independent Telephone Engineer like myself, and I get to calm them down I’m almost like a counselor! 🙂
Relief – now you’ve found me you don’t have to spend hours talking to Calcutta any more!

Another frustrated Customer gasped, “I couldn’t understand any of the advisers. I would have been better off calling the local Kebab shop for help and advice to fix my BT Line Fault. The adviser blamed my equipment so I brought new phones, only to find it was an external fault incorrectly diagnosed!”

Call me if you want to speed up your Internet, have telephone wiring problems or need CAT 5 Network cable installed. All work is carried out quickly – when you want it done, and for a fraction of the price! Service always with a smile! 🙂

Where some big companies go wrong by outsourcing

A lady called me – “I’m having blinds fitted and a telephone Junction Box is in the way. Can you move it?”
She continued, “I tried using BT Online Chat on their website. The foreign person on the keyboard at the other end couldn’t understand me – they didn’t know what a blind was!”

Look how happy my customers are with my Independent Telephone Engineers

“We searched online for an Ex BT Engineer and had one of Geoff’s telephone engineers come and move some wiring for us as we were having a conservatory built…. Something BT and Openreach refused to do, even for their extortionate charges. After many calls to both BT and Openreach, both claiming it was not their job, we contacted Geoff and instantly Ross arrived, did the job within 2 days of the call, did the job AND tidied up all for a fraction of BTs charges! Delighted”!

Have an additional telephone socket for a Sky Box or relocate an existing socket and move your Router to another room, tidy up your wiring and speed up Internet connection. Pick up the phone, call me, and your Telephone Repair will all be done for you!

Avoid expensive call out charges from your service provider if the fault is found to be with your own telephone wiring or Broadband equipment.
Just call me – an Independent Telephone Engineer !

BT Master Socket TestRemove the front panel if you have this latest style Master Socket called an NTE, then plug your phone into the Test Socket arrowed. If your line is not working then you have an outside fault and need to call your service provider who have to arrange Openreach to fix your Telephone Fault free of charge *see note below*.

You pay line rental so Openreach are responsible for the line from the exchange up to and including the Master Socket.

For external faults on the Openreach network Phone BT Faults – simply call 151 after you have verified that the problem is on their wiring, and not your own.

*Note* Dampness or corrosion around the socket or wiring inside your property is chargeable.

If BT are not your service provider look on your phone bill for the correct number to call, and your service provider will instruct Openreach on your behalf to look into the fault.
If you’re still confused, you can call me Geoff Grove and I will talk you through and see if I can help you out! You won’t be further antagonized by a call centre in India, or have any problems understanding what I’m saying to you! 🙂
