Telecoms and pay-TV complaints data


These quarterly publications present data relating to complaints recorded by Ofcom against the largest telecoms and pay-TV providers. They are intended to help consumers make better informed decisions. We believe that the publication of such information is useful for consumers, especially those who are thinking about changing provider or purchasing a new service.

We also believe that publication of provider-specific complaint volumes incentivises providers to improve their performance.

Telecoms and pay-TV complaints Q1 (January to March) 2018

This document presents data on the number of complaints made by residential consumers to Ofcom about the largest telecoms and pay-TV providers in the quarter January 2018 to March 2018.

The four services covered in this report are: fixed line telephony (landline), fixed broadband (fixed broadband), pay-monthly mobile telephony (pay-monthly mobile) and pay TV (pay TV).

This document is intended to help consumers make better informed decisions, especially those who are thinking about changing provider or purchasing a new service. We also believe that publication of provider-specific complaint volumes incentivises providers to improve their performance. Complaint volume data is one of a number of measures that can provide an indication of service quality. In May 2018, we published our second annual service quality report, 'Choosing the best broadband, mobile and landline provider', to provide an annual update on a range of other service quality metrics such as customer satisfaction.

The next complaints publication will include data for the period April to June 2018, and we expect to publish it in October 2018.
