When to contact Openreach

First contact your Service Provider

You should talk to your phone or broadband service provider such as BT, Sky, TalkTalk etc, as Openreach will not be able to help you if you:

  • have a question about your bill
  • have a problem with your service, like a fault
  • have a query about an engineer visit
  • want to order phone or broadband, or upgrade to fibre.

They have all your details and will work with us to organise any installation or repair work if it's needed, on your behalf.
