There are many things that can interfere with Wi Fi signal - having the device in a cupboard, near a TV or radio, near electrical cabling, distance, wall thickness, etc. The best thing to do is keep your device as far away from any interference as possible. If you find your wireless signal is still not what you'd hoped for, you could try a booster device, or improve access points. Get in touch if you need advice.
For any issues with broadband or calls, we ask our customers to perform a small number of tests for us to diagnose any potential issues quicker. If these tests are not performed it may delay a full return to service. Please ensure all tests are completed from the master socket. If you're unsure on how to do this, we can guide you through this.
To help us diagnose issues quicker we need you to tell us about any events that may have caused a fault on site or in your area - this could be recent storms, roadworks, flooding, or anything out of the ordinary.
The time it takes to fix a fault can vary and can depend on your support level, the nature of your fault, your premises, engineers schedule, and even the weather.
Our priority is to return you to a fully operational state as efficiently as possible. If you're a vital service that requires an extra layer of resilience, you may want to consider upgrading your support level. Our sales team would be happy to discuss this.
To speed up getting your connectivity issue fixed, you can carry out these simple tests, this may fix your issue or will help us identify your problem much faster. Click on the link to the tests HERE.
