Landline fault. I can hear them but they cannot hear me.

Hi 

 

I have a fault on my landline.

 

If i phone out the phone works fine but if i receive an incoming call i can hear the caller but they cannot hear me. 

 

The phone is connected via a master socket on the wall.  I do not have a phone connected into the hub.  I understand the old copper connections are being phased out but i still have one.  I have tried turning the handset on and off.  I have tried a different handset and still get the fault.  I have asked different people to call me and experienced the same problem.

 

A number of people have called me today and experienced the same problem.  When i called each of them back the line worked fine they can hear me and i can hear them.  It appears the fault is only on incoming calls where i can hear them but they cannot hear me.  It therefor appears the fault is at my end.

 

If anyone from sky reads this can you please help.

After speaking with rugbymalc we went through some troubleshooting steps which didn't resolve the landline issue so we have arranged an Openreach engineer visit accordingly.

It was great speaking with you rugbymalc and thanks again.

Thanks
Tom

Try running this line test to see if a fault is found outside of your property and if something is found you can book an engineer repair:

You can also run this test via the MySky app.

Let us know how you get on.

Re: Landline fault. I can hear them but they cannot hear me.

Well that was a waste of time.

 

After a week with this probkem the openreach engineer arrived today, carried out his tests and concluded that sky equipment was at fault and it was affecting over 100 other customers in my area.  I have been told to wait another 75 hours to see if the fault is fixed.  Needless to say i am a tad annoyed by this not to mention highly frustrated.  I am paying for a service i am clearly not getting.  Will i be getting a refund for the time i have been out of service?

Can someone tell me how to get this problem sorted.  Do sky really value me as a vip customer?  I fear not, if this is vip service i pity the ordinary customers. Please please someone at sky get a grip of this and sort my problem.  I am sick and tired of running online tests, trying different phones etc.  Its a phone for gods sake hardly  cutting edge tech.  Why are the sky experts unable or unwilling to sort this out?

@rugbymalc  You are talking to other customers, any faults on the Network are the responsibility of Openreach,  the fault could be anywhere so not a easy as you seem to think it it is.

 

A Sky employee has advised it is with Openreach to fix.

 

You may be entitled to compensation once the fault is fixed as per this link https://www.ofcom.org.uk/phones-telecoms-and-internet/advice-for-consumers/costs-and-billing/automat...

Like you I'm a customer here, Sky Employees are clearly identified as such.

And openreach told me it was a problem with sky equipment at the exchange.  Leaving me stuck in the middle with a fault.....

...which both Sky and Openreach are aware of, so it will be fixed without further intervention.

Did this ever get resolved? My Mum has EXACTLY this same issue. Did it turn out to be a Sky or Openreach issue? 

 

My Mum relies on an alarm in case of falls or accidents but right now she is worried this won't work. Who do we call / contact to get this resolved?

If Sky is your Mum's landline provider, it's Sky she needs to contact. They'll talk to Openreach, if the fault is outside your Mum's home.
