We have a dedicated team of trained Customer Care Agents in place to investigate and resolve your complaints.
If you are not happy with the Customer Care Agent or the way in which they handle your complaint you can ask to have the matter escalated to a supervisor or manager in the appropriate area. The supervisor or manager will provide you with a revised resolution timeframe. It may not be possible to speak to a supervisor immediately however they will return your call within 24 hours .
He / she will review and discuss the issue with you and try to reach a satisfactory resolution.
If, having contacted the manager/supervisor you feel that we have still not dealt with your complaint satisfactorily, you can ask for the matter to be reviewed by the Head of Operations.
Digiweb will do its utmost to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction. However, if you are not satisfied with the resolution of your complaint, you also have a right to seek independent advice from the bodies below:
