New Client: Problems with Cable Internet
Highlighted
Smart-Analyzer

Hello,

 

I recently signed a new contract for Kabel-Internet. I just received the device and connected and installed everything following the instructions, but now I see a blinking red light for "Internet" and the internet connection is not working. (picture attached)

 

I am wondering if the cable outlet is working at all. When I ordered the contract, I used the "verfügbarkeit prüfen" button for my address. I got the message "Prüfung erfolgreich!", so I assumed it would be working, but now I am not so sure. I live in an old building, and I heard from friends that sometimes cable is not installed at all even though I have an outlet. Would you know how I could check if the cable outlet is working?

 

If there is no working cable in my apartment, what is the procedure? Would you send a technician? Or would it be possible for me to cancel my current contract and switch to DSL instead? I don't mind switching to DSL, as long as I don't get charged for the Kabel-Internet which I am currently unable to use.

 

Many thanks,

Mila

Hello Mila,

 

how long did you leave the device on the port? Try it over night.

If it doesn't work, we can hire a technician.

 

Regards

Jens

Hi Jens, thanks for replying. I just left it overnight as you suggested, but unfortunately I see no change. The same blinking red light and no internet.

Hello mila7,

 

ok, then let me know your personal data in a pm.

Is it okay for you that we assign a technician with the installation? Smiley (fröhlich)

 

Regards

Jens

Hi again, I have some updates on the problem.

 

I asked my landlady if she knows if cable is working in the apartment. She said the the previous tenant was also trying to get cable internet, but in the end, it was impossible because my part of the building is missing some cable. It can't be installed because it goes through several apartments and some of the owners didn't agree.

 

Unfortunately, sounds like it will be a waste of the technitians time. I guess in this case the best solution is that I cancel my cable contract, as I'm still within the 14-day period, and get DSL instead? Apologies for the change of plan, I had no idea it's possible not to have a cable in the building at all.

Hi mila7,

I'm sorry to hear that. But I also think it will be a better decision for you.

If so, just send us the equipment back and the contract will be cancelled.

What surprises me, however, is that another customer was installed in the house during the last week and everything works there...

Best Regards, Manu
