Is BT Broadband down? How to check BT broadband service status
If it looks like your BT broadband service is offline, there are several tools available for you to check the service status, so you don’t necessarily need to call tech support.
First, check the official BT service status page. This will display issues with BT phones, broadband, email, TV and mobile services.
Another good avenue is the official BT Broadband Twitter.
You can also use the third-party tool Down Detector, which provides service updates not just on BT Broadband but a huge range of providers and services.

Complaining about BT to Ombudsman Service: Communication
If you cannot reach a satisfactory resolution with BT, you can submit a complaint to the ombudsman. Each provider is a member of one of two ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) schemes; for BT Broadband, you need to contact Ombudsman Service: Communication.
To make use of the ADR process, you need to have received a deadlock letter from BT (a document that states that neither side can agree on a solution). However, you can complain to the ombudsman without a deadlock letter if at any point you have not had a response from BT for at least eight weeks.
Before complaining about BT, read our in-depth guide to complaining about broadband, which explains the various steps in a lot more detail.
