It is an issue that I have noticed in my conversations with business related phone and internet providers. Many times, I have heard, “My internet speed is so slow!” or, “I can’t get a hold of you!” and that is the worst way to deal with a situation. I do not think it is a good idea to take this type of approach.
It’s not a good idea to be constantly hounding your online or telecommuting provider. The only reason this is a problem is because you are constantly on the phone or your Internet connection is so slow that you have to wait for what seems like forever to get through. This is simply not a good way to deal with a situation. If the speed is so slow that you have to go on the phone for hours at a time, that’s not a good way to deal with it.
To make matters worse, the ISP that I use for my internet connection is the same ISP who recently sent an e-mail to my boss complaining about my phone bill. I have to explain to my boss that this is what I was doing when I was on the phone, and that it is illegal for me to be on the phone during business hours.
This kind of problem is no different than having a phone that you can’t talk on while you’re driving, or being stuck in traffic all the time. If you live in a large city, this is a problem, but it really applies to smaller towns and rural areas as well.
So if you’re stuck on the phone, you would think that your company’s phone is the first phone you would like to use. Sadly, that’s not the case. I use 2 other cell phones, and none of them work. That really sucks. I’ve also heard stories about working phones just hanging up just as your boss is about to call you to ask you to do something, and the line goes completely dead.
It can be a little unnerving for a business phone to go dead on you, because of the possibility of it being the end of your job. It happens all the time. I was recently fired for the same reason, and it took me several weeks to figure out why. The reason is that my phone did a lot of different things all at once and I simply couldnt keep it all straight.
Businesses these days are constantly being told by their customers that they need to do more than just get a phone number from them. People are constantly telling them that they need to deliver an incredible customer service experience, such as a phone that rings when you leave your desk, or an email address that actually gets through. So when your phone stops working, the only thing you can do is try and figure out what went wrong.
This is where the phone company comes into play. They are the ones who provide the phone line and the landline number so you can call and talk to a specific person or business. Their phone number is available to all of the other businesses in your area, but you are the only one who can actually call them.
This is why it’s so important to keep your phone number up to date. You don’t realize your phone is no longer available or your land line is no longer working until you try to call them and they tell you it’s not working. When your phone suddenly stops working, it’s not actually as traumatic as it may seem. It’s like you are the only one who is disconnected from the world.
Its true. The problem with this is that the phone companies actually have a very strict process for when they will give your phone back to you. If you go to the phone company’s website to tell them what happened, they will tell you that you should call the number that says they will “extend your service,” which is a very vague and imprecise phrase.
