With Bink Broadband being an ISP, we are required to have a Complaints Code to protect:
This Complaints Code covers the internet and/or telephone service (if you have chosen to use it) provided to you by Bink Broadband.
At Bink Broadband we are committed to addressing your queries or complaints as quickly and fairly as possible. All our members of staff are trained on our Complaints Code and will always follow it, to make sure this happens.
If you are not completely satisfied with the service you have received, please let us know as soon as possible by contacting our Customer Support Team using either our support telephone number, chat facility or email address. If preferred, you can send a letter to the address provided below. If you are unable to make the complaint yourself, someone else that you have ‘nominated’ to manage your account on your behalf can make the complaint for you. If you haven’t already nominated a person, you can contact our Customer Support Team to help you with this.
Contacting our Customer Support Team:
We will always try our best to resolve your query or complaint on your first contact with us by phone or chat facility. If you raise your complaint by email or post, we will endeavour to reach a resolution within 48 working hours of receiving your complaint. Where it is not possible to find a resolution quickly, we will provide you with a "Resolution Plan" which will include the steps we plan to take to look further into your query or complaint and the anticipated timeframes we will do this in.
After receiving our written response to your initial query or complaint, if you are not completely satisfied with how this has been handled or think we have not resolved it completely, you can escalate it to our Complaints Team. In order to do this please either email: firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a letter at the address for “Post” set out above. Once we have received your email or letter, we will acknowledge it within 48 working hours and endeavour to respond to you within 10 working days.
Should you still not be satisfied with our response, at your request, the complaint will then be escalated to our Customer Services Manager who will investigate further and reply via either email or post within a further 10 working days.
We will treat your complaint as resolved in a way you are satisfied with, if:
If we cannot resolve your complaint (in a way you are satisfied with) within a period of 8 weeks, or if agreed before the 8 weeks are up if unable to do anything more to resolve the issue, we will issue a ‘deadlock’ letter. You can then, if you choose, make a complaint through Ombudsman Services. Ombudsman Services offers an independent alternative dispute resolution scheme. It is approved by Ofcom for the handling of consumer disputes. Its services are free of charge for residential and small business customers.
Please note that Ombudsman Services will only deal with your complaint if you have first followed Bink Broadband’s complaints procedure in full. If Ombudsman Services does deal with your complaint, then an independent adjudicator will decide how your issue should be resolved, based on the details of your complaint.
If you’re unhappy with the way we or Ombudsman Services deal with your complaint, you can contact Ofcom, the independent regulator and competition authority for the UK communications industries, at Ofcom Contact Centre, Riverside House, 2A Southwark Bridge Road, London SE1 9HA, Tel: +44 (0) 300 123 3333 or +44 (0) 20 7981 3040, website: www.ofcom.org.uk
You can also get further help and advice from your local Citizens Advice Bureau, although this is not part of our formal complaints procedure.
If you choose Bink Broadbands telephony service, you can ask your existing telephone provider to transfer (or “port”) your old number to our service. If porting a number is possible, we will email you with a “porting date”. This is only done once agreeing to a date with your existing telephone provider, which depends on all the “Activation Steps” needed for the transfer being in place. If the number transfer has not happened 1 business day after the porting date, you are entitled to claim compensation from us.
We calculate the compensation you are entitled to by dividing your applicable monthly subscription payment (including any discount being applied) by the number of days in that month and then multiplying this by the number of days’ delay for which you can claim compensation. Any compensation you are awarded will be added to your next monthly bill, as a credit.
Any compensation you are awarded will fully and finally settle any claim you may have against us (now or in the future) in respect of the delay.
Bink Broadband welcomes all customers, and we are committed to providing a supportive and non-discriminatory environment. To help our customers with special requirements, this Complaints Code and any of our literature, including all our legal pages can be supplied in large print, Braille or audio versions upon request.
For any assistance with special requirements please contact our Customer Support Team by email, telephone or letter, as set out previously.
