      Engineer visit on a Sunday?

      Hello good people,

      I've ordered Sky Broadband & Sky Talk at my new flat. I need an engineer visit to set up the line and this was originally booked for this coming Monday.

      I had a call earlier from Openreach asking could they move it to Sunday. I said that's fine but then wondered do they even work on Sundays?

      I called Sky and they have no knowledge of the change of date.

      I'm probably worrying over nothing but having had numerous broadband set up problems before I can easily foresee a situation where no engineer visits on Sunday or Monday.

      Thanks Simon, hopefully it's someone getting some overtime and wont lead to me having to wait another couple of weeks for installation. Good to know it's not unheard of anyway.
