Exceeding customer expectations

EY’s annual survey of 2,500 UK households sheds new light on the broadband customer journey as consumer expectations continue to evolve

This year’s research reveals that 46% of consumers are increasingly overwhelmed by the range of bundles on offer, up 3% from last year, and introductory offers provide more of a source of confusion than clarity.

Customer service can act as a key differentiator and support premium positioning in the market, with 33% of households willing to pay more for their broadband bundle in return for good customer service. However, many UK households are still left dissatisfied with their customer support experience, with consumer challenges varying significantly by age.
