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.

Making meaningful changes

We're always listening for new ways to improve our services, and we're constantly using that insight to iterate a better experience for you as a customer.

We also want to be transparent about where we can improve, how we can listen and all the improvements we can still implement to make your experience as a customer even better. See below some of the ways we're making meaningful changes to our services thanks to your ongoing communication.

Right the first time, and then every time after that.

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. 

Services you can count on.

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.

Customer first, always.

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.
