Thread: Adsl issues since 1 July 2017

  1. #1

    Default Adsl issues since 1 July 2017

    So I am unfortunately in an area with no Fibre so I rely on my Adsl.
    I have a 10mb line but since 1 July 2017 I have had nothing above 6 mb that is stable.
    My calls keep getting closed, my line is escalated and never fixed.
    Numerous calls logged and spoken to managers with no resolution.

    Frustration is an understatement.

    No ettr and the generic response from afrihost support is getting boring and stale.

    Just keep nailing them on social media about it until they resolve it

    Companies hate social media campaigns these days. Its pretty effective... would not make it a go to approach but if after several attempts and no joy... take em to pieces on social media

    Looks like they are pushing for fibre and trying to phase out copper.

    Morning Mike. I'm definitely aware of your fault history and your discussions with our Twitter team as well as our Live Chat team. Your line has definitely been unstable lately and I can assure you that every person who you have made contact with so far (From Social Media to our Support Managers) have done their best to escalate your fault with Openeserve. Your fault does seem to relate to the degraded quality of your copper line which is why it doesn't appear to be an easy fix, but I can assure you that your fault is still open and Openserve are acknowledging our escalations and will resolve the matter as quickly as possible. From my side, I have escalated your fault internally as well as with Openeserve, again.

    Thank you, Can you please provide me an explanation why my calls on your system and Telkoms system have been closed from 1 July
    And keep getting new ones opened to start the clock over.

    I don't have that kind of insight into Openserve's system. It's best to always respond to the automated SMS that gets sent if your fault persists. That will help to keep the same fault open. As per your chats with our Twitter team, I can see that we have, however, been informing Openserve that the nature of your fault has not changed since you first logged it. I can assure you that your fault is still open, Mike.

    So 72 min queue for afrihost support
    .. My line is flapping and no longer stable. Since the rain started my dsl has been flapping. So clearly there is a massive cable fault. No calls or updates resembling it is being attended to. Going on 4 months now.

    I'm sorry to hear that, Mike. When is the last time you heard from an Openserve technician?

    If there is an issue on your DSL line we still need to log a fault with Openserve, and they will still need to dispatch a tech to resolve it.

    We will do our best to get that tech out to you as quickly as possible.
