Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

before filing formal complaints, however 1) This company refuses to leadership divulge contact info even when upon request 2)A level of arrogance was evident that they had no intentions of being courteous I am a broker for telecommunications including those provided by the subject of this complaint. I have NEVER seen such horrible handling of objections or customer service, ever.

If resolution is not made, I cannot encourage my clients to work with this company and I have also reported this to corporation I represent that it does not act with respect or integrity and representation for sales should be discontinued. SERVICE: Sporatic
and frequently interrupted, far less reliable than competitors I have used, Modem has to be reset nearly every other day and rebooted, BILLING: The main problem I encountered was a sudden interruption of service, within the first 6 weeks of being a brand new customer. I went to the Century Link website and attempted to create my online account was unable to because I did not have the actual account number as it was not listed on my service order nor a preassigned PIN.As I was unsure as
the billing practices and cycles, I was not sure when to look for a statement (from time of install, etc). And I never received one.

In the interim my internet was disrupted and because the service is so terrible I assumed it was the modem again. My children are homeschooled and I work from home, all need internet access. We have lost approximately 2o hours of productivity due to internet loss.I contacted CL live chat agent who apologized and took my payment via the chat. I told him I am setting up for automatic payment and he said no problem. Now despite a clear error in getting statements to me I am being charged a reconnect feeREPS: 2 were helpful(Sean M),2 as a business owner should be terminated ID 352 Edgar rude,demeaning,mocking, interrupted and shouted over me, told me I should take it up with the Post Office because their "system" says the statement was mailed and they didnt receive it back from the USPS ID 3355 supervisor abrupt,disinterest

I'm not sure I'm understanding

April bill from install to May 7th was $52?

Sean M. (77131): Something had happened with your order where from April 10th to May 7th we were not billing you. So those days were put on your May bill.
