Is everybody happy with the new BTL Fiber optic system?
I had the new BTL Fiber Optic cable installed to my store 5-6 weeks ago It still doesn't work. And there is apparently nobody at BTL that cares. I have talked with 6 different supervisors. Each supervisor said they would talk with the technician and call me back in 10 minutes. After 6 weeks and 6 supervisors, not a single one has ever called me back . They all gave me their extensions, but the phone just rings and there is no voicemail. The technician that worked on it last brought a supervisor. When they left, they said they would escalate it and have somebody come from Belize City to troubleshoot it. That was 2 1/2 weeks ago. And then, apparently the technician closed the work ticket as "fixed". BTL has some serious internal problems with their customer service. I just spent 2 hours on the phone and got nowhere.....again. I can't find anybody at any level that will "own" the problem and make sure it is fixed.I just want my old dsl modem back. There were no problems with that.

The service has been the worse since early 2003 when we had Coral Cable..... I wish we could just have our copper back.... Even this morning I was not able to access until 8:30a, and now it is very very slow.....And just like Safaristar we are unable to get responses from BTL.... First 1 1/2 months no internet and now 3 weeks of unreliable internet.... frown They don't seem to know how to fix it.....

My friends call me Judyann

It took over a week to get them out to fix mine and the problem seemed to be the original installation done sloppy. I believe the regular BTL repair men did not do the installation and the current backlog for repairs is due to the poor installation .
