EE brings back all customer service calls to the UK and Ireland

EE has announced that all of its EE Pay Monthly, Pay As You Go, Broadband and TV customer service calls are now being answered by customer service staff in the UK and Ireland, marking a first for the industry. The move is the latest in a line of initiatives EE has introduced in its drive to become number one for service in the UK mobile industry.

As part of the move, EE, part of BT Group, has created over 1,000 new jobs in the UK and Ireland across its North Tyneside, Darlington, Plymouth and Merthyr Tydfil sites.

Marc Allera, EE CEO said, "customer service is a top priority for us, and 2016 was a landmark year in the service that we provided to our customers. We've delivered on the pledge we made last April to answer all EE customer service calls in the UK and Ireland, and are making strong progress towards our commitment to expand EE's superfast 4G coverage to 95% of the UK landmass by 2020. We're passionate about making our service the best in the industry, so you can expect more to come soon."

Customers are now benefitting from the latest updates to the My EE app, which provides people with more flexibility and control over their account, including checking data usage, available allowances and add-ons, as well as getting advice on everything from how to pay their bills to checking their balance on-the-go.

In late 2016, EE also launched an innovative Network Status Checker tool to provide real-time and personal updates to customers about network performance. Customers can set tailored alerts for places that are important to them, such as their place of work, their home or the home of a loved one, and they will receive personalised alerts if there are network issues.
