Industry-leading service and support

HomeWhy Colt?Customer Service

People expect the same from business providers as they do in the consumer world, but most of the telecoms industry hasn’t kept up with the pace. In fact, old-school telcos can be seen as being slow and hard to deal with. At Colt, we know that's just not right. We want to go above and beyond for our customers with our vision to be the most customer oriented business in our industry. 

We build intelligence into everything we do, from the network through to how we deliver, which is why our Net Promoter Score score leads the industry. But we’re aiming higher. We’re investing not just in our network, but into the service and support that goes with it, to ensure that we’re constantly exceeding your expectations.

We work harder for our customers

At Colt we respond quickly when we're needed and keep customers in the loop every step of the way. Here are some of the ways we work harder to deliver a great service:

Right-first-time delivery, every time

We know first impressions count. As a Colt customer you can expect a personal service, including a personal email from one of our Directors within 24 hours of you joining, a welcome call and a dedicated order owner. 

We’ve also got the processes in place to make sure you’re getting what you need, when you need it. You’ll have a contractual delivery date within three working days and we’re cutting down lead times by working more closely with our suppliers. 

Reliable, stable services

We work hard to keep our network up and running.

We own the fibre making up the Colt IQ Network which means we can get straight to any problems and fix them quickly. We’ve set up automatic notifications to quickly spot issues and we’ve got 24/7 network monitoring to ensure reliability.

Our service is centred around support and we have multiple technical teams on the end of the phone if you need them.

Great service at the core

We work to understand what you need and know a good experience isn't one size fits all.

We’ve been investing in customer support, which means we’ve got the people, as well as the technology to provide a personalised service.

Whether it’s advice on the phone or help over online chatwe work in a way that suits you best.  



"Colt were much faster in delivery than our previous supplier and we able to save over 30% by moving to the Colt solution. If we had to rate Colt it would be 10 out of 10.”

"We're very pleased with the customer service, infrastructure and expertise of Colt, and we're moving our entire organisational structure to the cloud."
