I have just moved into a brand new flat, I ordered the full sky package (Sky, Talk and Broadband) and the Sky installation was no issue whatsoever.
The engineer was confirmed for 23rd March and then I receive a text telling me it is not required (it is by the way!)
However, after waiting for my 3rd router to be delivered (having had the other two sent back by the postman as I happen to be a work during the day - how dare I) I set it up and surprise surprise, nothing!
There is an active phone line in the flat but this is in the cupboard, what Sky didn't know was that the cabling for the telephone sockets are not connected so there is no signal anywhere!
Surely they should come and rectify this?

Thank you for your post and welcome to the forum.
I am sorry to hear that you are unable to use the phone or broadband service in your property. Can you confirm where your master socket is and if this is the connection which you were referring to.
If it is, are you able to connect your telephone directly to the test socket?
Here is a link if you require assistance, hope this helps.

Thanks for getting back to us,
How did you get on with checking your connection into the master socket? This should give us a better understanding into where the problem is coming from

12 hours since the last response, the replies so far simply follow a script and not actually deal with the issue at hand. Therefore I have made a formal complaint.

Update - I went to my flat today and plugged the router into the master socket and powered it on - and it worked. Therefore my argument is still valid, the telephone points in the flat need connecting to the master socket in the cupboard.
If Sky had sent an engineer to my property, they would have realised this. As a consequence, Sky have not fulfilled their obligations to provide me with a broadband service (which I have been paying for).
Please can you respond with proposals on how to remedy your default.

Thank you for the response.
As I said previously, yes the broadband connection works from the master socket, however this is completely pointless as the socket is in a cupboard - I needed an engineer to connect the telephone points to the master socket.

Thank you for replying to us again.
I am sorry that you feel as if we are not giving you the service that you signed up for, however we are not held responsible for where your master socket is located in your property I regret to inform you. Our contractual obligations are to provide you with a service from your main line entering your property, which you have confirmed is working.
I can certainly understand that you would like to have the extension sockets fixed which will allow you to connect the router outside of the cupboard, this would need to be discussed with your landlord if you are renting as any work that would be need to be carried out would be down to either BT Openreach or an independent engineer. Sky unfortunately will not touch these for you.
I hope that you understand our position in this. Please let us know if you do decide to have someone look at this for you.
