Hi

Many thanks for you help and advice. It is appreciated thank you

I too look after other clients broadband and I am authorised on their account to deal with aspects of the account. These are business accounts.

I was told that I could not authorise samknows so access to the account could be discussed. This I believe is wrong and I am the account holder

Samknows should already hold authority in any case to discuss the account as their contact at bt refunded monies previously so it does not make sense

Also, the chap I was speaking got a few things wrong, as an example, I requested an email confirming our conversation (or certain aspects of the conversation), which he said he could not do, until I pointed him to their code of conduct and quoted the passage which states they will do so if asked. Same with the disputed amount not been taken, as it was well in excess of 5% of the invoice and also, he kept repeatedly stating I could not complain due to nothing on the account to complain about. This point is where my issue lies 

He could also not give any reason for the refunded monies earlier this year, other then to say maybe a goodwill gesture, so I pointed out it was feasible that it was samknows/bt who refunded the monies, and until a complaint was raised by me, could not be progressed

I have already supplied the email thread from samknows confirming the previous monies returned, and stating bt had made the account unlimited.

I guess I'll have to wait now, but tired of having to point out their mistakes as above, and it taking over 2 hours of my time on the phone

Once again though, many thanks for your help, it is appreciated

From what you said, it sounds like he doesn't know or fully understand what the SamKnows testing is.   

afaik on the previous occasions re BT making charges, I dont think Sam has direct authority for your account, but rather a contact in BT who ensures that the account doesnt incur data charges for those users running the whiteboxes.    This may differ from ISP to ISP as I know that some ISP's will only allow 'x' amount of free data to cover the amount used by the whitebox eg 5GB or whatever.

I would try contacting SamKnows using the community email address and you could also try cc a copy to Neil Campbell at the email address I gave in my earlier post.

Good Luck.

Hi kitz

Many thanks, much appreciated

Samknows have been dealing with this since 2016/17, so I do believe it is bt not taking appropriate action to fully resolve.

If you want to pm me an email address, I'll email the samknows email thread so you can see the state of play and what was meant to have been completed for unlimited allowance earlier this year

I also received a letter confirming full amount of invoice due will be taken on the 9 July. If this happens, I will create a separate complaint as this is against their own code of conduct (terms 8.16).

I'm probably a fool to myself, as I was offered unlimited, and all overage charges cancelled if I setup a new 24 month contract. Which resolves the issue, but does mean I am tied to a new 24 month contract and the people who should have done their job correctly, just do nothing. It's a principle with me sorry. I expect others to be like me, and do their job

Many thanks

Hi tickmike

I hope your well

If you go to samknows.com, it should explain it better, but in essence, it is a test on the broadband

Many thanks
