What to Do and When

What to do if things still aren’t right:

For Broadband and Telephony Complaints Only:

If after contacting us by phone, email or letter you’re not happy about the provision of the communication services you can :
Pass your complaint to our Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) scheme (which is run by Ombudsman Services: Communications) if:

  • your complaint has been going on for eight weeks.
  • we’ve sent you a ‘deadlock’ letter which means there’s nothing more we can do to solve your complaint. You can ask for a ‘deadlock’ letter at any time but please give us the chance to try and fix the problem first.

Ombudsman Services Communications provides a free independent service for customers who aren’t satisfied with the final outcome of their complaint. They’ll only take complaints that sit within the ADR scheme. They are unable to deal with complaints about commercial policy (like our prices or broadband availability). Nor can they deal with complaints from businesses with more than ten employees.

You must contact the Ombudsman within 12 months of getting your ‘deadlock’ letter.
