I've been trying to call in & have been getting kicked all afternoon.

Either getting the "Sorry, this service is overloaded" or get thru - go thru the authentication then get the "Goodbye" and disconnect...

Getting a little infuriated.

When you say calling Vodafone are you talking about fixed line or mobile?

They had an email outage yesterday morning that probably drove a lot of additional traffic to an already busy call centre... that may account for it.

Anything I can help with?

I've been ringing through to Broadband customer service the last few days and been having an average of a 30 minute wait.
There's been various introductory messages that there are ongoing issues and there will be long delays.

The last couple times I didnt get an option to choose which queue to go into and someone from the sales team ends up answering and transferring to another queue.

A little earlier I got through to someone who didn't have their headset connected properly, tried to fix it and subsequently cut me off. Back on the queue again (15 minutes later)

Doesn't look like Vodafone has streamlined the fixed line/Broadband customer services (or experiencing growing pains)

The fixed line guys are still the Ihug team of old, and unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it) they're experiencing serious levels of growth, far oustripping our ability to recruit, train and deploy help desk staff. As I've said elsewhere, this is a big problem for the fixed line guys at the moment so I'd try some alternate channels while this is going on.

Feel free to email me your needs and I'll see who I can get to contact you. It might be easier.

Cheers

Paul

Meeting all day yesterday...  Anyway.  Cheers for the response, Paul.
I'm interested in peoples experience with VFs text update - post NZ Post Pmt. 

"Gr8, yr NZ Post paymnt of XX was sucessful. Yr bill balance is still $1.16"

Cool, I'll put the last bit in...

Subsequent text - "Gr8, yr NZ Post paymnt of $1.16 was sucessful. Yr bill balance is still $1.16"

WTF...

This has happened on two seperate billings & payments.  No decent explaination from Custy Svcs. 

Just a rant.  Would like to see it fixed.  Cheers
