My experience is the exact opposite. On telecom the longest I ever waited was 1-2 minutes at peak times. At vodafone the last time I rang was a 40 minute wait before someone picked up. To not have callback on a landline is completely unacceptable. I do not use a mobile.

It doesnt run off of a landline due to technical reasons. Mainly transport of caller ID over an IVR isnt always accurate. It shouldnt be deemed unacceptable due to you not having a mobile. How do you speak with us if your landline faults?

The fix for the landline call backs would be the IVR asks what number you want to be called back on. Also it would be good if it asks what time you want to get a call.

Caller ID isnt accurate.



So do what the Telecom broadband one does and ask to key in a call back number.

I edited my post above and stated that before seeing this.

The call back system is in stage 1 of many stages. Stage 1 has proved its worthiness.
I would suggest features are to come.

Just out of interest, are the various parts the company are made up of still having their own call centres, or are they all under one centre? ie, when I worked there, the Paradise/Clear/Saturn elements were combined into one massive faults centre.

There are still separate call centres for different business areas. We'll integrate everything eventually, but it pays to keep in mind that these things take time and affect jobs.

I honestly don't know what more we can say on the subject that hasn't already been discussed in this 6 page thread.

There is cross skilling going on in various departments. I do business fixed line provisioning for what was ihug but have recently been learning/doing some of the basic stuff for what was TCL.

I know some people in front line rolls also learning other systems.




Please note: I have a professional bias towards Vodafone.
