This has been going on since late June and has involved BT coming out to view the exchange and my house.
Just to hammer the point home, heres a couple of the emails i got over the past few days.
We have now successfully raised a fault with BT against this circuit for investigation, we would recommend that you follow this up by either calling our Internet Support team or emailing us in approximately 5 working hours. We should, have a full update within this time scale.
We have been notified by Entanet that they have successfully raised a
fault report with BT in respect of your ADSL connection.
We recommend that you follow up directly with our ADSL support line on
020 3002 4831 after allowing 5 hours for an update on the fault issue.
This also means the connetion to my hosting is slow and painful, hence I wasn't able to login and restart the apache process before the internet connection would drop.
Thanks for bearing with me, I've only got BT engineer number 4 coming out tomorrow morning now.
