Skyfail – a secret service

Please share and RT this in the hope that Sky try and improve their service

I moved house on Thursday and Sky Broadband was supposed to be up and running on Friday. I’m posting this using the signal from my phone.

With the exception of the removal of my password details everything else is a straight cut and paste from the Live Chat Service. I have not altered anything to make it funnier….

I accessed and checked my account already – I know what I have ordered. It hasn’t been connected and I want to know why it hasn’t and when it will be. I couldn’t have made that clearer. I told you not to take me through security and then tell me you couldn’t help. You ignored me and wasted my time anyway. Feel free to recap the chat if that feels different to you? Me 8:30

I told you specifically – don’t take me through security if you are going to give me a phone number to contact. Me 8:31

Yes, I have accessed your account and checked that your services should go live on 11/04/2014, Rajesh8:30

As the Fiber optic is taken care by the BT engineer, they help in provisioning this. Rajesh8:30

The delay is due to the BT engineers, as they have to active this, and Sky will activate this from the Exchange. I am sure when you contact this number, They will help you to activate this services. Rajesh8:31

Yes,  this services should go live yesterday. I understand your concern, I will provide a feedback to the higher management team , regarding the Fiber Optic customers. I am sure this will be taken care further. Rajesh8:33
