How Do I Complain to Gigaclear?

At some point, you might have a bad experience with Gigaclear. If this happens, you’ll need to make a Gigaclear complaint. There are a few steps to follow to make sure your Gigaclear complaint is dealt with appropriately, so follow the instructions and hopefully you can get a speedy resolution.

Gigaclear Customer Complaints Code

Gigaclear has a Customer Complaints Code that is approved by the telecommunications regulator, Ofcom. So you can be sure your complaint is taken seriously.

The Gigaclear Customer Complaints Code outlines the following:

  1. Upon receiving a complaint, Gigaclear will acknowledge your contact via telephone or in writing within 24 working hours.
  2. Gigaclear will keep you informed of the progress of your complaint, proposed actions and the expected time frame for resolution.
  3. Gigaclear's aim is to resolve complaints in a timely manner and will aim to reach a resolution plan within three working days.
  4. Complex complaints may take longer than 3 working days to provide a resolution plan. In these cases, Gigaclear will regularly update you on the progress and likely time frame for resolution.
  5. Gigaclear will advise you of the outcome of your complaint in writing, once a resolution has been agreed.

Steps to Make a Gigaclear Complaint

The first step to make a Gigaclear complaint is to get in touch with Gigaclear customer service. You can do this over the phone or by writing to Gigaclear. If you’re complaining over the phone, the representative you speak to will try to resolve your complaint right away - in fact, Gigaclear claims to solve the majority of customer complaints at the first point of contact.

You can make your complaint in the following ways:

Gigaclear Complaints Contact Options
Complaint Department Phone Email
Current live service 01865 591 131 [email protected]
Gigaclear Network 01865 591 137 [email protected]
Installations No Number Available [email protected]

If you’re making a complaint in writing, Gigaclear outlines in its complaints code that you will receive a confirmation that your complaint has been received within 24 working hours.

If you’re happy that your complaint has been resolved, Gigaclear will provide you with written confirmation that your complaint was successfully resolved. However, if you’re not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint then you can escalate the complaint to the second stage of the complaint process.

To escalate your complaint, you will need to email the Gigaclear Executive Office. Again, your complaint will be acknowledged within 24 working hours. The Executive Office will investigate the complaint thoroughly to make sure it was correctly dealt with in the first instance, and where possible, try to resolve the complaint. Below is the email address for the Gigaclear Executive Office.

You should give Gigaclear a few days to fully investigate the complaint and you can also request a second opinion from a member of the Senior Management Team if you’re still not happy with the outcome.

If you’ve exhausted all available options and Gigaclear haven’t been able to resolve your complaint, you can submit your Gigaclear complaint to the Telecommunications Ombudsman. This is an independent organisation that will look at both sides of the complaint and mediate to find a resolution. The Ombudsman will provide a binding resolution that Gigaclear must abide by.

You can only escalate complaints to the Ombudsman if you have met either of the following criteria:

OR

  • At least eight weeks have passed since you first made the complaint
  • You’ve received a “deadlock letter” from the provider

Below are the contact details for the Telecommunications Ombudsman.

If you’re getting in touch with the Ombudsman by phone, you should know that its opening hours are Monday to Friday from 8am until 8pm and Saturday from 9am until 1pm.

What does the Ombudsman do? The Ombudsman handles only the most serious complaints against Energy Suppliers, Broadband Companies and Mobile Providers. They are independant and the decisions the Ombudsman make are binding towards the supplier and providers. You can learn more about what the Ombudsman does in our Guide to the Energy Ombudsman.
