Re: Do you think you want Vodafone Broadband ?

[ Edited ]

Ok. 24 hours after the the email putting me through security I get an e-mail saying it wasn't successful, apparently my postcode is wrong now. I moved house 12 months ago, tried to update my details in 'My Vodafone'. Now call me a pessimist, but do you think that has worked ? Another 5 minute wait for my broadband to come back to edit this post - anyway - it has occurred to me that they successfully sent me my new shiny and overall useless broadband router to the right postcode. Yes, they seemed to know it then, but they don't know it now....... How strange.

 

I can't wait to start mailing out this entire thread on Social Media, customer service at its most diabolical. Actually calling it customer service is a joke. They have invented 'Customer Antagonist'. Or even 'What is a customer, and do we care ?'

Re: Do you think you want Vodafone Broadband ?

Well the sage continues. After trying to get through security again over e-mail last night, i have heard nothing more.

 

However new random texts have started to arrive this morning 'My fixed line order has been cancelled', whatever that means.

Thanks @Sukhi, I am pleased to say that as of 8am this morning I am not a broadband customer anymore, and have enjoyed perfectly stable internet for the past 3 hours. I have TV in my bedroom again and all of my devices are working in perfect harmony. Even better than that the new Sky Q hub has meshed with all of my other Sky Q equipment so now I have amazing WiFi coverage.

 

Vodafone however still haven't responded to my complaint, responded to my private message from this very forum, responded to the fact that my Sure Signal failed last week and still haven't given me the refund of my Broadband connection fee after telling me to leave.

Re: Do you think you want Vodafone Broadband ?

Progress... maybe today is my day. A very helpful chap just e-mailed me regarding my private message and is kindly going to ship me a new Sure Signal. Only the complaints team and my broadband connection fee to go. Unless of course anything else crops up in the mean time. I wonder if this had anything to do with me e-mailing the COO of Customer Support at Vodafone overnight, or just coincidence.

Re: Do you think you want Vodafone Broadband ?

It seems the e-mail overnight wasn't a coincidence. Just received a very pleasant e-mail responding to my overnight message advising me that the credit for my connection fee has been applied to my account and apologising profusely for the service I have received. I have already had the communicatoin regarding my Sure Signal this morning, so that finally appears to be my situation resolved.

 

Just a shame really that it became such a protracted and painful process.

 

Thanks for the supporting comments on this thread.

Re: Do you think you want Vodafone Broadband ?

@Sukhi, so is this the way we all need to go to get our issues resolved?

 

Email the COO?

Re: Do you think you want Vodafone Broadband ?

Well - you thought I had gone. Sailed off into the sunset like some smug customer who found a route through the 'system'. I must confess, I thought it was too good to be true. An e-mail today back to the 'Directors Office' who had allegedly brought an end to the situation:

 

Hi,
 
I am afraid this is still not resolved. I missed a call from the Vodafone Rotherham number on Friday, took the call today.
 
1) They still thought that my address is my old address, despite multiple attempts to change this, havd to give my old address details to get through security.
2) They still thought I have fixed line/broadband services from Vodafone, despite this being allegedly cancelled and gone.
3) I didn't get as far as settling the reason for the call because I am afraid I lost my temper at the poor chap who called me out of regrettable frustration on my part, but there was an implication of an outstanding balance before he hung up on me (understandably).
 
Please help me resolve this, I have become frustrated to the point of anger and that is not fair on the people that are calling me, but this simply cannot continue.
 
So - are we saying even the directors office cannot resolve the confusion and poor organsiation that is Vodafone ? Let's find out.......

Re: Do you think you want Vodafone Broadband ?

@markdotjames - 5 weeks of your life you won't get back Smiley Happy Really pleased you're nearly there though, but really, it shouldn't be this difficult for any of us.

 

Good work, hope you reach resolution.
