How can I take the matter further?

  1. If you don’t feel your complaint has been resolved after speaking to one of our customer service advisors, please ask to speak to a team manager. The team manager will deal with your complaint and will then aim to contact you within 3 working days.
  2. If you are still not satisfied after speaking to a team manager, you may ask the team manager to escalate your complaint to our CEO’s office. Please give a team 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.

You will be assigned a dedicated person who will own your complaint and keep you fully updated. If we are unable to resolve your matter to your satisfaction within 12 weeks, a deadlock letter will be issued.

 

  1. If you are still not satisfied after speaking with the CEO’s office, you can ask the telecommunications Ombudsman (Ombudsman Service: Communication) to independently review your complaint. Ombudsman Service: Communication will not look at cases that are less than 8 weeks old unless you have received a deadlock letter from the CEO’s office which means that there is nothing further we can do to resolve your complaint.
