August 19th 2014
Mobile network EE has introduced a new ‘queue jumping’ service charge that allows its customer callers to get quicker service if they agree to pay 50 pence extra.
The new service, which claims to offer customers the chance to avoid a lengthy wait on the end of a line, has been met with mixed opinion from customers, consumer watchdogs and trading authorities alike. Whilst the service is on one hand initially meant as a service-booster, others argue it is swindling customers by making them pay more for standard service.
Andrew Griffiths, a non-EE customer, said to BBC Radio 4’s You and Yours that he would consider switching if EE were the only company to offer such a service.
However, other customers flocked to Twitter to vent their anger and disapproval.
“As an already paying @EE customer, why should I have to wait longer for help because someone else with no patience can pay to jump the queue?” tweeted @DarrenLeeC.
“I have been a customer of @EE for 10 years now. The call jump system they want to introduce is disgusting, I’ll be off to O2 then,” ranted @curexcomplex.
The main complaints over the proposed service revolve around beliefs that it is largely discriminatory, pricing people out of good service by offering superior treatment to those able to pay for it.
“I thought it was a bad idea for a company to offer to provide what really ought to be a standard level of customer service for a fee,” Andrew Griffiths said.
“It makes you think that perhaps they might not be trying too hard to answer the non-prioritised calls.”
Some experts have also questioned the practicality of the service, regarding whether EE is indeed equipped to handle the unprecedented amount of people that may wish to ‘jump the queue’. The company has said it will not be hiring any extra staff to cope with the potential increase in expectations. However, it says the 50p fee per customer will go towards strengthening its call service.
“EE’S goal is to set the highest customer standard for customer service in the telecoms sector,” a spokesperson said. “To support that ambition we’re investing significantly in our retail stores, contact centres and account management websites and apps.
“We’ve already committed to returning over 1000 roles to the UK from overseas call centres, and have already opened two new UK centres. To contribute to this and other investments in service we have introduced some small charges for certain customer services.”
