brookz: 30mins later and I finally got them to divert calls to my cellphone, silly voip.


why didn't you just do this yourself ?, cant you set this automatically to failover to your phone or do it from a web or voice portal if needed  , why do you need a call center to do this for you ?

I doubt anybody in Orcon gets paid that much, even Scott Bartlett.

You would be surprised. Wouldn't that be nice. Pay of my house in 2-3 years. *sigh*

Sorry getting off topic.

Thanks for the heads up. I was considering Orcon but have crossed them off my options list.

TelstraClear's overseas support was terrible too but it has been much better for me in the last year or so. They have got to the solution I need in a shorter time.

I did actually read from the start , you posted here fine so was thinking this shouldn't be a problem or did I miss something ?

Th whole idea of having intelligent platforms or some cases semi intelligent is that you can control via web or voice portal, VoIP is far more intelligent and gives you greater control. It always fascinates me why some one would wait for long periods in queses when they have the control themselves to do what they want.

Anyway.....

Personally I don't like the idea of outsourcing to the Philippines as it takes jobs away from NZ'ers who deserve them and that ISP slowly loses that personal touch and you start to be treated just like a another one of the flock.

From what I believe a callcenter job like this in the Philippines is around 740,000 Peso per year about $25,000 NZD and its hard work for them as like us they struggle to understand Our Kiwi accent as we talk very fast compared to Americans who teach them English.
Saying that 740000 per year is a very good job and this person is allot better off then a large chunk of the population. However higher quality staff are paid more and cost more to the company who outsources.

But then we won't get any really interesting threads about how crappy a call center is lol....

This is nothing new is it? Orcon has always had terrible support. Wouldn't go near them!

Snap and Telecom are my favourites. Have to say WorldXChange is bloody good to deal with too. Vodafone is a bit hit and miss some times but generally pretty good. Telstra is rubbish.

johnr: 

Vodafone NZ is 100% NZ based over 3 sites in Auckland and all Vodafone NZ employed mobile and fixed line

I am sure I have pointed this out more than once to you


True, I always forget whether Vodafone do or don't ... maybe I have permanent brain damage from when I had to deal with the old outsourced to Egypt CS several years ago.... Tongue Out

Why don't you join a real ISP then? Join VodafoneNZ. Their Call Centres are based in New Zealand.. They are very helpful. Unless you're an ape who doesn't speak English you'll more than likely get your problems sorted with VodafoneNZ. + Vodafone have the best Home Package of SKY/Phone/Internet plan at the moment.

+ With their recent acquisition of Telstra Clear they'll be even better..

That's pretty offensive don't you think, most of the outsourced call center staff will speak multiple languages with English mainly a second one, that's more than I can do how about you ?, If Apes  can speak multiple languages then they are probably a much superior species, But I will point out I do find that comment offensive.

I wasn't referring to the Call Centre staff. ;)

In re. to people's complaints. I personally understand Telecom's Filipino Call Centre staff very easy.

I have also found them to be good. Talk very clearly and can understand them. Not like some of the mumblers I have had on local call centers
