TalkTalk most complained-about home broadband and landline provider

BT and Vodafone top complaints table for pay-monthly mobile

BT is most complained-about pay-TV provider

Ofcom has today published the latest league tables on the complaints it receives about the UK's major providers of telecoms and pay-TV services.

The quarterly report reveals the number of complaints made to Ofcom about the UK's largest providers of home broadband, landline telephone, pay-monthly mobile and pay-TV services, between October and December last year.

The overall volume of complaints in the quarter across all four services remained broadly in-line with the previous period. Broadband and landline services continued to generate the highest volume of complaints.

TalkTalk was the most complained-about provider for broadband and landline services. The company's main complaint driver was faults and other problems with its services.

BT and Vodafone drew the highest complaints figures for mobile services, and BT was the subject of the most complaints about pay-TV. For both services, customers' main problems related to complaints handling, billing, prices and charges.

Jane Rumble, Ofcom's Director of Consumer Policy, said: These figures give people the information they need to shop around and compare providers' performance.

The scorecards also motivate companies to improve their performance, and we want to see them follow through on their promises to give customers better service.

Complaint volumes is one of many measures that can shine a light on service quality. Next month, we will publish our annual provider comparison report, which will present a range of other indicators such as customer satisfaction.
