J.D. Power and Associates have just released two studies into broadband customer satisfaction and we’ve finished in first place on both of them. To celebrate, we're giving away a year’s free home broadband!

The studies, the J.D. Power and Associates 2008 UK Fixed Broadband ISP Customer Satisfaction StudySM and the J.D. Power and Associates 2008 UK Mobile Broadband ISP Customer Satisfaction StudySM, gave each provider a score out of a maximum of 1000. Our Home Broadband scored 767, while our Mobile Broadband scored 712.

The research looked at five key factors that affect how satisfied customers are with their broadband. J.D. Power and Associates judged these to be, in order of importance, performance and reliability; billing; cost of the service; and customer service/technical support.

“This is a fantastic recognition of the focus we’ve had on the customer experience,” said Peter Rampling, O2’s Marketing Director. “For both our mobile and home broadband services, we took our time coming to market to place the necessary emphasis on getting the customer experience right. This report demonstrates that we were right to take this approach.”
