There are a number of issues that people face with internet and broadband. The internet is now very important for people for entertainment and work. Hence, when people have issues with it, they tend to complain immediately and also they need to be treated properly. When they call to register a complain, they must not be made to wait for a long time. This can make them feel unimportant and dissatisfied about the services of the internet company. The Ofcom polls have come to a conclusion that the customers of the TalkTalk, a pay television, internet and mobile network company, has failed to make their customers happy with the outcome of the complains made by the customer.
It had been providing customers with remarkable services but then now, the company has not been giving the customers the right solution. The Ofcom survey shows that the TalkTalk has now come to the bottom of the table. Most costumers seem to be complaining about the unreliable connectivity. The next most common complaint is the speed of the internet. The customers say they are not getting the promised speed. This has made a lot of customers angry and frustrated.
Another problem is the waiting time for the customer who calls the customer care to file a complaint. The Plusnet has a waiting time of nearly six minutes and 47 seconds and the TalkTalk has about 33 seconds. The average waiting time to register a complaint is 1 minute and 37 seconds. The Ofcom also concluded that there has been a sharp rise in complaints from customers and that Plusnet’s share in it is more than double in the last three months of 2018.
TalkTalk and the complains:
“The TalkTalk cannot really hide from this anymore. Their customer service is not up to the mark. They need to learn and manage the complaints properly and without any problem. They need to find better ways to handle customer complains.”, says the director of market intelligence, Ofcom.
The latest talk from the firm is that the number of complaints about broadband has now come down. Most of our customers are now satisfied with the way they react to the complaints. They also say that though there are some results are still disappointing, there are many customers who are actually supporting and staying with the company. Firms and broadband companies are now working on enhancing their services. TalkTalk has now closed the call centres in India. They have now provided online tools and other applications to resolve the issues that the customers get. They are also working on new WiFi routers that help in strengthening the reliability.
Now, all broadband companies have started working on improving their services properly. Customer satisfaction has now become a priority for most of the broadband companies. The Ofcom survey has helped them find their place in the market and hence they are all working hard to become better. The companies will keep improving and enhancing their services.
