Hi Guys

 

Long story short. Hamilton here, Spark Fibre Max customer.  A contractor digging a trench for a electricity service line for a nearby new house chopped through the cable from the plinth to my house.

 

 

 

No fibre phone or internet. The contractor is associated with WEL Networks. Are Ultra Fast Fibre part of or adminstered by WEL?

 

 

 

Who at Spark can fill me in on the progress of this? I work until early evening and waiting on hold for between 42 minutes and an hour isn't my idea of relaxing after work.

 

 

 

I used the online chat and advised of the fault to the CSR. I said i had pics and he asked me to email them to T961193 which i duly did.

 

 

 

I checked with online chat today and they said the fault has been escalated to UFF however they had no knowledge of my email/pics sent last night.

 

 

 

Can someone please find this email and associate it with my account and update me on the progress?

 

 

 

Cheers, please PM me for my details.

Ask them about the Spark Restore Kit, this gives you data on your Spark mobile phone.

As per edited post, only catch is you need to be on Spark for mobile, maybe if you pick up a SIM from the dairy they can credit you the data.

Bugger. No Spark mobile and I don't have time to wait to speak to a CSR.

You will just need to wait for it to be fixed calling them is not going to speed things up

Just wait for ONT to come back online

A fibre cut that has already been escalated to the LFC won't need extra pictures etc to be progressed. It's already in the system. Obviously there's also a lot of weather related issues going on at the moment.

 

As mentioned this isn't an official support channel - following up on regular issues should go through the standard channels.

 

 

 

Cheers - N
