Our Service during COVID-19 - July 2021 Update

At IDNet, nothing is more important to us than our family and community, even more so in times of unprecedented challenge such as the world is currently facing. It is with this continued approach that we take this opportunity to assure you that we are here for you!

Acting responsibly to protect the health of our team, we implemented remote working in March 2020 with great success and continue to provide the support you all know and love.

Keeping our network under-subscribed ensures that in times such as these, we can continue to provide you with the fast, reliable service you are accustomed to.

Are orders affected?

Orders are still being accepted and processed. For all orders Standard minimum lead times still apply but may be slightly delayed depending on engineer availability where applicable.

What should I expect on the day?

Openreach engineers are employing a safe practice process following the Covid-19 guidelines.

On the day of your installation Openreach will ask you the following questions:-

  • Have you or anyone else living here been diagnosed with COVID-19 or have been asked to self-isolate?
  • Do you or anyone else here have flu-like symptoms?
  • Have you or anyone else living here received an NHS letter confirming you’re classified as an extremely vulnerable person?

If you respond 'yes' to any of these questions, the engineer will not enter the property. Instead, they will call their helpdesk in order to assess how to proceed.

If you respond 'no' to all three questions and the engineer is unable to complete the task externally, they can proceed to carry out a managed installation within the premises. For everyone’s safety, Openreach engineers are operating a clear room policy and they will ask the end customer to stay in a different room, maintain social distancing, open the windows if possible and follow the usual hygiene procedures.
