Potion Speed Enchantments have no effect

For over a year, alchemical acceleration (potion speed) enchantments have not been taking effect. In some cases, the potion description is modified to take into account the proper and expected cooldown period. However, after consumption the actual cooldown period is unmodified - so a potion with an advertised 30 second cooldown still takes 45 seconds.

There are numerous forum threads describing this issue with no official acknowledgement of a problem:

Can we please have an acknowledgement that there is an issue?

    Just tested myself actually. I can confirm that the enchantment has no effect at all on potion cooldowns. Please acknowledge and fix this.

    Also for clarification, the glyphs of potion speed (which reduce the cooldown of potions by 5 seconds with a legendary glyph) are what is broken. We are not talking about the glyphs of potion boost (which increase the duration of potion effects by 3.6 seconds with a legendary glyph), and I have no idea whether or not those are working properly.

    Edit: The tooltip does state that there is a 30 second cooldown, but using a stop watch the actual cooldown remains 45 seconds.

    Submitted a ticket for this and got a reply email telling me to log out of the game and power cycle my console... Are support tickets even read any more?

    Any word on this? Got another reply to my ticket saying a fix was going into an upcoming patch. I haven't seen anything about it in the PTS notes though. Please don't let this bug slip through again @ZOS_GinaBruno

    Can confirm that at least 1 enchant on 1 piece of jewelry works. Gold with infused brings it down to 37 seconds.
