As I blogged previously, for three engineer visits to fix faults in broadband (FTTC) services BT had charged us a total of £39,744.00, when in fact no charges should have applied.
Naturally we disputed the charge (and withheld payment).
We finally have the response from BT, and admittedly this is just the first response, but this is it...
The response is that there was an error and BT should not have charged us, so a total of £397.44 has been graciously "waived" and will be credited.
Yes, BT are crediting £397.44 after over charging us £39,744.00
We'll try for a second dispute on this one I think - well done BT - up to the usual standard of dispute resolution there I see. We have had numerous cases where BT have agreed a dispute, and credited a different amount to that originally charged and disputes, but never before this magnitude of discrepancy. We have also had cases where BT have agreed a dispute but never actually credit us.
