Codes of Practice

Consumer Codes of Practice

Purpose of this Code of Practice

The code informs you about our products, services, and customer care policies. We have prepared it in line with guidance published by Oftel (the regulator, which is now Ofcom) on 15th August 2003.

Our Commitment to you:

Whilst we may not provide all the component parts of our services ourselves we will liaise with our suppliers to ensure that any problems with their services are resolved promptly.

We are committed to providing you with the highest quality of customer service. When we purchase our services from wholesale provider(s), we choose those providers carefully to ensure that you get a high-quality service. We make every reasonable effort to supply services that satisfy your requirements. We work to all relevant laws and regulations.

Price and Tariffs:

Because there are so many different rates that depend upon usage and volumes and other separately negotiated criteria, and the changes in tariffs are being updated constantly, it is not possible to publish a standard set of rates that would apply to all customers.

Our pricing structure is available from our Customer Service Team on 01622 238 448 and on our website. We will write to you in advance if we change the pricing structure on any current products and services.

Your own tariff can be obtained by emailing our Customer Relations Team on cs@rtfnetworks.co.uk

Faults and Repairs:

If you experience a fault with any of our services, please call our Customer Service Team on 01622 238 448. We aim to have any faults investigated and repaired within 2 days. Details of our fault handling procedure can be found here.

Compensation and Refunds:

Our service provision to you is dependent upon the continued operation of the major networks, in particular, Openreach. If service is lost for any reason, we will claim compensation on your behalf at the scales appropriate to your network.

Our policy is set out in the RTF Networks Ltd Terms & Conditions.
