Thanks TimA, this has been more progress than we've had in ages! Hopefully it is just a line fault and nothing major.

Mrs randomusername here- we have internet and landline! After over a month of no phone or net, I can't describe how awesome it is to be able to hop on my laptop and write this. Thank you so much to @TimA and everyone else who has worked on this case for us, we are seriously grateful.  If Mr randomusername hadn't come across this forum and asked for help and you all hadn't been here to suss it all out for us, we probably would have still been without any phone or net months from now- so adamant was every ISP we spoke to that we couldn't get ADSL NOR VDSL. 

 

Again, thank you all so much.

That's one of the great things about GZ. There's usually someone willing and able to help with non-techies problems. laughing

Honestly I am humbled by the time and effort a lot of you have put into this. TimA, pjamieson, BMarquis among others I appreciate what you have done and have managed to get us working internet and a landline where every other avenue was a dead end. Thank you all so, so much. Really goes to show that there are good altruistic people out there still. I know it may be just another day in your jobs, but you made a difference to some people who really needed it. I hope this can raise awareness of the customer service side of things and the need for good control over internet services and availability. I wonder how many others were in our position but just accepted their fate. Thank you all again, so much.

Nice work Chorus/Vodafone! Out of interest what got connected in the end?  Assuming ADSL based on VDSL port waiters.

It looks like you might have a customer for life at Vodafone.  Well done.
