Wireless providers doing a better job of solving customer problems: J.D. Power

TROY–Whether it’s a simple billing inquiry, a plan change or a technical issue, wireless providers are solving customer issues faster than ever, according to the J.D. Power 2023 U.S. Wireless Customer Care Study Volume 1.

This decrease in problem resolution time across digital (website and app), phone and in-store channels is driving significant improvements in customer satisfaction, up 14 points (on a 1,000-point scale) to 808 in 2023.

“After a period of fighting through staffing challenges and investing heavily in more dynamic, advanced tool-enabled digital customer support solutions, wireless providers are now reaping the dividends of that hard work in the form of faster customer care resolution and more satisfied customers,” said Ian Greenblatt, managing director of technology, media and telecommunications telecom at J.D. Power. “It is particularly noteworthy that we’re seeing consistent improvement in both digital-automated and live channels via interaction with in-store and phone-based representatives. It is clear from the data that the top-performing wireless providers take a systemic, channel-coordinated approach to customer care and problem resolution.”
