Ofcom has given Three, a mobile operator in the UK, a £250,000 fine for mishandling customer complaints. Following an investigation, the regulator found that Three hadn’t handled subscriber criticisms in a “fair and timely manner.” This included “closing” cases before they were resolved and failing to log appropriate customer calls as complaints.
“When things go wrong, customers are not only entitled to complain to their provider, but must have confidence that their complaint will be dealt with fairly,” Claudio Pollack, Ofcom’s Consumer and Content Group Director said.
Ofcom says Three has taken measures to ensure these issues don’t arise again.
