House moving woes!!!!
« on: October 05, 2009, 06:56:35 PM »

I thought all my problems were finally over when we agreed a completion date for my move, but no. I hadn't reckoned on this new liberalised telecoms age. I had to wait 15 days for my phone and Broadband connection after I was able to place the order with BT, and I couldn't do that until the previous owner had canceled her services.

I think that this is because of the 'competition' in the provision of services. The previous owner had line rental from BT, calls from Talk Talk, and Broadband from Tiscali. When I canceled my Tiscali account, I was told they wouldn't release the line for 15 days, it looks as though that was the case in my new house, although the previous owner took her number and Broadband with her.

It was much simpler when there was a monopoly %%

(Of course, If I had 15 days notice of the move it would have been different, but the reasons I didn't are a whole other story. :(()
