Live Chat ( almost ) restored.

Thank you for (almost) restoring Live Chat, as a vital means of communication used by disable persons, ( hard of hearing ).

 

 

It was an irresponsible decision in the first place,...

 

however, it is good to know that PlusNet has, eventually responded in a positive manner, to customer complaints regarding the disabling of Live Chat for disabled people in favour of more able hearing people...

 

Today.. Wednesday 12 September 2017  shows Live Chat now available, all day for the rest of the week,.

 

Wednesday-Friday: 7:30am - 10:00pm

  Here`s hoping that it will be fully restored over the weekends,  .... soon...

Re: Live Chat ( almost ) restored.

disabling of live chat did not just affect those with a hard of hearing.
it affected those with no disabilties too.
no live chat certainly didn't favour me as i neither have the time not patience to wait in a 30+ min call queue.

so we should not turn this into a "those with disability" debate.

Re: Live Chat ( almost ) restored.

yes its working ,, BUT for how long  the Status post says "" We're continuing to monitor the chats coming in alongside the impact on our call wait times, ""

so what this infers is that if Call wait times increase as per usual , Chat will be turned off in favour of phone Crazy2

Now once again i will say this shows that PN staff are in short supply Lips are sealed

And i will also add that Not everyone is interested in Bookface and twits , so the only contact is here or phone !  if ya can get through when chat is unavailable Ticked off

Re: Live Chat ( almost ) restored.

it doesn't take rocket science to work out what is going on here.

1) it's still the "summer holiday" period
2) they have limited staff as it is
3) various staff are off on their holidays

thus they don't have the required amount of staff to maintain support levels on all platforms.
clearly they are not able, or more likely willing, to bring in more staff.
so they've had to reduce support service.

my question would be, if you are reducing support service, and thus the overall product that one subscribes to, where is the reduction in monthly fee to compensate for the reduced service being supplied?

Re: Live Chat ( almost ) restored.

how is that making excuses?
i'm merely offering what i suspect is going on.

surely even you didn't read my post as trying to stand in PNs corner on this? if you did then you need to go have a rest.

and yes, people without kids will often use september to go on holiday, as it's cheaper and everywhere isn't full of damn kids.

Ermmm...beg to differ on that. Everywhere is full of grown up kids. Grin

Presumably you haven't had a chance to breed yet Grin

I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

Re: Live Chat ( almost ) restored.

don't want any, not that it's got anything to do with the issue in this thread.
