Aussie Broadband celebrates Canstar win – for the second year in a row
Media Release | Tuesday, 7 July 2020 | 1 min read
Aussie Broadband has won the Canstar Blue Award for Most Satisfied Customers for the second consecutive year.
The internet service provider was rated five stars for speed and reliability, customer service, value for money and overall customer satisfaction in 2020.
Managing Director, Phillip Britt thanked his team for delivering excellent customer service despite the added pressure due to the pandemic.
“We’re extremely pleased and humbled to see that Australians have once again rated Aussie Broadband as the best NBN Provider for customer service. Canstar are a trusted provider of independent research,” he said.
“A huge thank you to our amazing team for their sheer hard work and resilience during what has been an incredibly busy period.”
Phil said that customers prefer speaking to someone in Australia for tech support.
“Feedback from our customers show they appreciate that our operations are 100 percent onshore. Customers regularly tell us that they feel like they are treated as a person by our call centre team, rather than a number,” Phil said.
Aussie Broadband is a challenger internet service provider, with a reputation for providing high-quality internet and transparent customer service.
The company has evolved over the past 16 years from a start-up in a Morwell lounge room to the fifth largest provider of NBN services across Australia today.
Phil said that despite COVID-19 and rapid growth, consumer demand for reliable and stable internet has never been higher.
“We’ve grown from 20,000 customers to 254,000 in the last four years, with over 100,000 of those signing up in the last 12 months.
“Not surprising, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the whole telco industry.
“According to our data, daytime usage peak is still higher than normal which suggests that many people are still working from home. And evening peak is still around 10% higher than this time last year. This means demand for a decent internet service provider has never been greater,” he said.
“With feedback and metrics from our CX research, reviews and awards for customer service such as this award from Canstar, we believe we are now providing one of the highest quality customer service call centre experiences in Australian telco,” Phil said.
