Telecommunications Complaints in Context for October – December 2017

Complaints to the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman as a proportion of services in operation (SIO) for participating service providers increased to 8.7 complaints per 10,000 services for the period October to December 2017.

This is higher than the previous quarter, at 8.3, but below the high point of 9.0 complaints per 10,000 SIO recorded in April – June 2017. The full report, including participant ratios, can be found on the Communications Alliance website.
