FTTB Install - Port Allocation Issues

SOLVED Go to solution
Level 2

I signed up for FTTB on 28th November. 


I received a call on 29th November to say there was an issue with port allocation. She could provide no further information or a timeline on how long it would take to resolve. 


I called on 1st December to follow up as I had not heard anything further. I spoke to Customer Service and they had no details of the call. They put me throught to Technical Support and they had no details. They put me throught to a Case Manager and all they could say was there was no update and still a port allocation issue. 


What does port allocation issue mean? Are there no more ports available at my building? If this is the case, do I have to wait until someone moves or cancels?

Hi @richplatt,

I have forwarded your installation details to the technician that's completing your installation. He will be in contact with you to organise the best date and time to complete the work.

You will also need to co ordinate with strata for access o the communications room (MDF)

The tech will give you the info you need when they contact you.
