Customer service

We remain determined to improve customer service and further understand customers' needs so we can serve them in the most effective and efficient manner. Key to this is ensuring our networks are reliable.

 

More information on our approach to customer service across our UK and US operations can be found in the Strategic Review sections of our Annual Report and Accounts 2012/13.

 

Our key performance indicators in this area are the results of customer satisfaction surveys and network reliability
