If you want to understand why call centers are inevitably outsourced to developing countries by ISP's I recommend reading this recent blog post by John Linton, CEO of Exetel an medium sized ISP in Australia.

I always cringe when I call Filipino call centres.

In my experience 7/8 times I have had to talk to the floor manager as well as make a complaints via the companies emails to get anything done due to stalling tactics or inability of the staff.

Not to mention the comprehension issues both ways.
