Typically used by tech support if a customer is calling in chasing for more information.10:00 - Fault has been escalated.11:00 - General review time if the fault doesn't fall into another category.12:30 - Fault parked for closure.13:00 - Morning engineer appointment.16:00 - Afternoon engineer appointment.

To raise a damage report, simply raise your normal fault as per the other guides. Once done you can go back into the fault by clicking on the 'TSC' and edit the 'Nature of Damage' field to the relevant option then save.

MSO

If a customer's service is being impacted by an MSO you do not need to raise a fault.However, if the MSO were to continue past its estimated fix time then you can raise a fault so that a fault manager can contact Openreach for more information.In this case, simply raise the fault as per the other guides however you do not need to confirm charges or get any appointment times.Please note FMs can only contact the incidents team between 9am-5pm on weekdays.

Charges Statement

We’ve now exhausted the line tests we’re able to complete remotely which have not found fault. If you decide to proceed with a Supplier Engineer Visit, I need to advise you that if the engineer finds the cause of the issue to be with equipment or wiring for which you are responsible, they may charge you up to £152 (£90 for CF) for investigating and resolving or highlighting how to resolve, such an issue. If you are not home at the agreed time, a £90 missed appointment charge will be raised. If the Supplier misses an agreed appointment a £29.15 credit will be raised. Though the testing we’ve carried out does minimise the likelihood of an issue being found with your equipment, I just wanted to check you’re happy to proceed?
