Customers with Special Needs
We will always give priority to customers with Special Needs wherever possible.
We want to ensure that we give you the best possible service. However, things do go wrong, and when they do we need to know about it so that we can ensure a satisfactory resolution.
We aim to correct the problem you encounter to your satisfaction and our Customer Support Team will try to solve your problem as soon as possible via our normal fault reporting channels.
If you still feel that your complaint has not been dealt with to your satisfaction you may contact the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority.
It will be quicker if you contact us directly before referring the matter to the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority as they will need to be satisfied that we have had an opportunity to deal with your complaint. If you have not been in contact with us first the Authority will probably refer the matter back to us.
The Gibraltar Regulatory Authority is the Government Department set up to regulate telecommunications in Gibraltar. It is empowered by law to ensure that all telecommunications operators meet their obligations under the Regulations. It can also arbitrate, with your prior agreement, any dispute/complaint you may have involving our services. This scheme offers an easier resolution to disputes without engaging in potentially expensive legal action. Please however be advised that any application to arbitration does not discharge or relieve you of any obligations you may have to pay us any amount that is not in dispute.
Please contact us, or the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority, if you require further information on arbitration.
