Whats up with TelstaClear Customer Care?

I dropped them an email asking a quick question about getting connected to their cable broadband

They send two replies

The first saying they are going to rpely

And the second telling me I should phone them to ask the same question

Now I understand they are primarily a pone company - but surely they shoudl have better systems in place than that. Here is a potentail customer that they have effectively just told to 'go take a hike'

Is this typical of their "service"?

TelstraClear are a great company, IF you can get behind the MASSIVE wall of stupid they put up to stop you. Why that wall's there, I have no clue.

TelstraClear SERVICES are great.
TelstraClear SERVICE is awful.

Yeah, it's tough to actually get through to them. My service stopped working 11 days ago (not TCL's fault) and I'm still waiting for it to be fixed. But once it's working it should mostly chug along like it had for the previous 11 years...

I think companies are slowly (yes, quite slowly) understanding that e-mails from customers are just as important as the phone calls they get.

At present, it's still best to phone large companies, considering they receive thousands of e-mails a day, not to mention having to get through their spam filters.

Well, every time we ring the customer help line (and manage to get through after 40 minutes), they say that someone will get back to us 'within 48 hours', but they don't.

Which is exactly why I sent them an email....

If you're located near a cabinet then stick with DSL, cable isn't worth it these days.

Buttonmash: TelstraClear SERVICES are great.

TelstraClear SERVICE is awful.


 

Thats why I have never joined them, plus the fact that they are ozzy owned, and I would prefer to support NZ owned companies. I do have a telstra fibre optic box sitting outside my house too all ready to connect, but when I emailed an enquiry once, I never got a reply. They are another one of these companies who think email enquiries are worth less than someone phoning up.
