TROY—Satisfaction with wireless providers is rebounding from 2021, showing the flexibility of providers to adapt to changing customer expectations, according to the J.D. Power 2022 U.S. Wireless Customer Care Study—Volume 1, released today.
“The industry is getting a grip on what the new norm is and have invested time and energy in training customer service representatives to best handle incoming requests based on customer preferences and issues,” said Ian Greenblatt, managing director at J.D. Power. “Making the connection with customers is imperative to keep satisfaction scores going up to pre-pandemic levels. For example, this volume of the study shows us that T-Mobile has made strong efforts to improve problem resolution satisfaction through its social media channel, which is seen in an increase in its satisfaction scores.”
