Are Broadband Providers on the top of your list of things to complain about?

Telecommunications providers and carriers have long been one of the services that consumer complain about the most. In fact, telecoms services topped the list of consumer complaints to the Commerce Commission every year since 2016, only to most to second place in 2019/2020 when Covid-19 complaints about Travel moved to the top spot.

In our increasingly connected world it’s unsurprising that broadband is so high on the list of complaints. We rely on our broadband connections more than ever for entertainment, staying connected with friends and family, and for work.
