J.D. Power and Associates recently released their latest Wireless Customer Care Performance Study and Verizon Wireless beats out Alltel, T-Mobile, and AT&T to claim top honors in customer service. It seems that Verizon’s ability to solve a problem in one call is the deciding factor in making its customers happy. Even if hold times are at an all time high, increasing 34% since 2003, people are happier if they only have to call once. The study, which was based upon responses by 11,000 people who had used their provider’s Customer Care service, also found that 75% of people contact customer care via the phone, 24% actually go into a store, and a mere 1% contact Customer Care via email or the internet. What’s your take on it? Are you happy with your provider’s customer service?
