Customer Complaints Code

All our systems have been designed and developed in-house to ensure we have the most flexible path to delivering the solutions our customers require

The purpose of this code of practice

This guide has been developed to help you to understand the relationship you have as a customer of OpenITC. It will enable you to:

Most of OpenITC's services have 1 month minimum contract period. However, you may have agreed to other contract terms at sign-up time. You may view your contract end date within our customer control panel available through our control panel.

Some services take a little time to cancel, as they require us to work with special industry processes (such as ADSL). When you cancel your service, we aim to advise you of the time period from us receiving your cancellation request to the time at which the service is withdrawn. During this period, you remain liable for the costs of any services we provide.

Disconnections and cancellation of services

We reserve the right to suspend or cancel your service within the contracted timescales - for example, if you do not pay your bill.

Complaints

If you would like to register a complaint, here are a number of different ways you can contact us:

By Email: You can e-mail us your complaint via support@openitc.co.uk

By Phone: You can contact the Customer Care team directly on +44 (0)333 340 6736 from 9.00am to 5.00pm. We are closed on weekends and bank holidays.

By Letter: If you prefer to put the complaint in writing, you can send it to the following address:

OpenITC, International House, 24 Holborn Viaduct, CITY OF LONDON, London EC1A 2BN

What happens once we receive your complaint?

We will acknowledge all complaints received by letter, fax or e-mail within 14 working days of receiving your complaint.

Dispute resolution

If we are unable to resolve your complaint satisfactorily, we will issue a ”deadlock” letter so that you may make a complaint through Ombudsman Services: Communications, an independent alternative dispute resolution scheme. We can provide you with details of this service.  Alternatively if more than three months has passed since you first made your complaint, please contact the ADR scheme directly.

Fault Repair

Faults can be reported around the clock via email at support@openitc.co.uk . To report a fault to one of our representatives please call +44 (0)333 340 6736 during office hours.  However unless otherwise stated in your service agreement, engineers only attend to faults in normal working hours (Monday – Friday 9am to 5pm, excluding bank holidays). Faults can occur on the OpenITC Network, or another operator’s network, as well as your own equipment.

If the fault is reported during normal working hours, we will try to establish the location of the fault. We may request that you carry out some simple checks to help us establish the cause of the fault. Repairing faults on our network is part of the maintenance cover we provide with our service. If the fault is not on our network then we may not be responsible for its repair. If the fault is on the BT network (in the case of ADSL and SDSL Broadband) then you may need to report this fault to BT directly. To report a BT fault call one of the following numbers.

BT Residential customers call 0800 800 151
BT Business customers call 0800 800 154

We reserve the right to charge for any abortive work or visit arising from faults over which we have no control. Should an engineer need to visit your premises we will agree this with you.

General philosophy
