Moved to sky fibre but no internet for weeks
Hi I wonder if anyone can give me any advice. I have been a sky broadband customer for years and have been pretty happy with the service, so happy that I advised my daughter to switch to sky fibre. What a disaster! she applied before Christmas and was waiting for the switch over. Boxing day her phone and internet were disconnected and she presumed the switch was going ahead. No such luck, nearly three weeks later , she now has phone but no internet. After numerous calls to Sky support she has been told many different stories - an openreach engineer will turn up with the router, (which sky have now sent), open reach messed up, and now that her order is stuck (what does that mean?). Support seem to be giving her the runaround. After informing her that the stuck order would be resolved and that they would call back within 24 hours, still no joy. What should she do next? She is supposed to be doing online training for her work and is getting stressed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

It sounds as if your daughter has grounds to make a formal complaint. The next time that she contacts Sky, if she feels that she is being given the run around, she should state that she wants to make a formal complaint about Sky's actions (or inactions) as she perceives them that have deprived her of internet access since Boxing day.
Ideally she will be transferred to an agent in the customer care department who will be able to register her complaint and advise how it will be dealt with. As the lack of internet access will cause her hardship she should ask for Sky to provide her with alternative means of accessing the internet while the complaint is being resolved. In the past this has usually taken the form of a mobile USB dongle.
If she is still not happy with the response she receives a written complaint can be sent to:
