Been on the phone for 50 minutes been put on hold at least 8 times.

 

 

I just needed them to update my plan pricing from the current $115 for unlimited VDSL with phone to the $99 plan for exactly the same thing.

 

 

Why is this so hard?

 

 

 

What should have been a 3 minute phone conversation to say "I can do that no problems, type a bit, then done. can I help you with anything else today?"

I feel your pain.

Had a 40+min call and multiple transfers just to get someone to understand I wanted to cancel my acc and pay the early termination fee.

Took an hour on the phone to spark to pay my bill




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.
