Bloody BT

June 24, 2008

I had a phone call from mother, very brief, from her mobile, which then cut out. I tried phoning back, on both mobile, and landline – and was puzzled at no answerphone. I became concerned.

I was about to try a neighbour when they phoned. It turned out all the BT lines in the area are out, and mother had gone to them for help.

In the end I drove back, sorted out mother’s mobile phone – the battery pack is almost dead, for good measure – put more money into it, etc.

But the really bad news is that BT will not come out and fix the system until 1 July. There are a number of OAP households in this area, all deprived of their landlines. Trying to keep mother to keep her mobile on (she normally keeps it off) is a big battle.

BT is going to pay for this crap service.
