What happens if I'm not satisfied?

If you are still not satisfied after speaking to a manager, you may ask the manager to escalate your complaint to our CEO's office. Please give the manager the opportunity to resolve your complaint first before contacting the CEO's office. You can also send your complaint directly by post to the address below. The CEO's office try to respond to every complaint received within 5 working days of receipt. You will be assigned a dedicated person who will own your complaint and keep you fully updated.

If you are still not satisfied after speaking with the CEO's office, you can ask the telecommunications ombudsman, Ombudsman Service: Communications to independently review your complaint.

Please remember that the ombudsman will not accept cases that are less than 8 weeks old unless you have received a deadlock letter from the CEO's office, which means there is nothing further we can do to resolve your complaint. You can contact the ombudsman using these details:
