Call Centre Wait Times

Just an annoyed rant.

Tried two or three times today to contact customer support to upgrade my services. Wait times are 30 minutes. Tried chat and was 28th in the queue. Why is there no email address I can send a request to?  Is this really award winning support? 

 

Not impressed!

Re: Call Centre Wait Times

Good Evening, 

 

Unfortunately our queue times for our technical support department are a little long at the moment and we don't have any publicly facing email addresses as these would inherently attract spam and make finding actual customer issues much harder.

 

If there's anything we can do to help via the forums however please let us know and we'll do what we can

Are you suggesting I should request prices for an upgrade via the forums? If so where should I post such a request?

Re: Call Centre Wait Times

For pricing and offers, your best bet is chat or calling unfortunately, as that's account specific, it'd breach DPA to post personal details on the forums, most issues like provisioning and technical support can be handled via here. 

 

I'd suggest calling our options team sometime before midday as that's when they are quieter to look at this, however I do have a colleague who can give you a quick call to discuss things tonight if you'd prefer?

It's really not a problem, I'll be the first to admit the wait times aren't always ideal so sometimes these things help, Doug is a great guy though and will sort you out with something good price wise Smiley

Re: Call Centre Wait Times

Hi

I have just joined the community although I have been a customer since 2008, having just read this thread and comment I must add my own comments. Over the years I too have had this issue of trying to contact tech support and had to wait for ages hanging on the phone. At times I have been lucky and got connected quite quickly but that is rare, the last time I queried this issue and was told that plus are opening a new call centre and are taking on more staff to ease this problem. I don't have many issue's albeit throttling back or as it's liked to be called these day's line management of my BB line. Trying to contact Plus via email direct with a tech issue is impossible now I have discovered the email link has been removed, by doing this your service has become worse.
