After trying to get through on the phone and giving up ofter 30 mins I decided to try the support chat for my broadband account query, straight away I was told I needed to call....

 

What is the point of having this service if they can't do anything apart from tell me to call?

 

 

 

My query was an account query but i had all of the account information ready to go....

They should offer a Callback facility, so you're in the queue and they call you back later. I wish more companies would do this.

Spark have a call back service.  But 4/5 times they never call back.

You have to wonder why these companies don't have a good email support service. It is just so much easier. Some ISPs don't reply to emails at all. 
 hat is why I like Bigpipes system, for most things it is far quicker and easier just to email.

Hi Blake, we'd like to be able to answer ALL customer's queries at every customer touch point but unfortunately there are some queries like payment queries that need to be dealt with by specialised teams to process.

 

As mentioned we had '0' call wait time at that moment so for the best way to get the issue sorted as quickly as possible. 

 

Cheers

Call their support line to tell them about the support problems?

Kind of a weird term as has multiple meanings. Is that a new thing to call it?
