Expecting a battle, and to be told to return it to a dealer, I called 123, who answered within about 2 minutes, told me I needed Xtra, and transferred me. She put me through to the correct department which was nice, so I didnt have to negotiate Xtras phone menu.
30 seconds on hold, and about 30 seconds chatting to establish I knew what I was talking about, and my router -was- faulty (not my PC as first suggested by the rep), and he said "Thats fine sir, we will courier a new one to you immediately, along with a courier bag for the faulty one to send back".
Good service - thanks Telecom. (It surprised me).

There are some good folks in all companies. Working for a large organisation doesn't make anyone bad. But certainly we hear more about the bad experiences, so it's good to read about some good work done.
