I reported the breakdown of my phone line to Eircom on September 11 and an engineer called on September 15, indicating a small dig would take place within days. When nobody appeared, I rang and continued to ring at intervals.
Every start date indicated was contradicted in subsequent calls and the start date pushed along. For example, I had been promised late September, then early October, then October 29. On October 31, I was told December 30.
Eircom blamed the issuing of a licence for the dig on the county council, who later said the granting of a licence was automatic. Eircom then admitted, a week ago, they had found the licence and work was to commence immediately. To add gall to frustration, every time I ring Eircom, a disembodied voice intones: “Thank you for your account details; we are not aware of an open fault with this number”.
