Purpose of this code

Mainly, our Customer Service team can be contacted from Monday to Thursday, between the hours of 9:00am and 6:00pm and 9:00am to 4:00pm on Fridays. An out of hours service is available at all other times by using the customer service numbers detailed below.

By phone: 01635 276300
By email: firstname.lastname@example.org
By post: White Horse Telecom Ltd, Potting Shed 13, Leverton Farm Buildings, Leverton, Hungerford, Berkshire, RG17 0TA
Our range of services
For more details of any of our products or services please contact our Customer Service team on 01635 276300. Or visit our website at http://www.whitehorsetelecom.co.uk
Upon the agreement of price and/or product you will be required to sign a contract. Your White Horse Telecom Account Manager will forward the relevant contract to you and our standard terms and conditions will apply. Some specific product/service terms and conditions will apply and these will be communicated to you by your Account Manager. Minimum contract periods are specific to the product; however, in most instances minimum contract is expected to be twelve (12) months, with a thirty (30) day notice period.
There are a number of ways to report a fault to White Horse Telecom’s staff.
Through all the above methods it will be necessary to note the number/products affected by the fault with as much detail as possible about the fault behaviour. You may be asked to collate further detail in the case of network faults.
Due to the wide range of products and services available from White Horse Telecom, pricing is available through discussions with your Account Manager. New business pricing is subject to your requirements and will be confirmed by way of proposal in writing before any contractual agreements are made.
Requesting cancellation from services
Should you wish to cancel a product and/or service before we have activated any internal instruction to proceed, you may do so without notice, in writing. However, should you wish to cancel a product/service that has been activated/dispatched you will be required to give thirty days’ notice and return any hardware with any security seals intact, by courier within forty eight hours. Should you fail to do so; full invoice value for either product and/or service will be due under standard payment terms and conditions. Any charges incurred within the thirty day notice period will also be subject to standard terms and conditions of payment.
Should you have signed to a service/product that has been activated and has in excess of the thirty day contractual obligation, you may be required to pay the full liability for that period.
Requesting terminations from White Horse Telecom services and/or products
To request a termination/transfer from White Horse Telecom services you are required to submit a letter by email or post indicating the relevant numbers that you wish to cancel. This written correspondence will act as your thirty day notice period and as such should be noted to that effect. Standard termination/transfer templates are available on request from the Customer Service team on 01635 276300.
Various payment methods and terms are available and can be discussed with your White Horse Telecom Account Manager and/or our Accounts department on 01635 276300. Our standard acceptable terms for line rental and call charges are on a fourteen (14) day basis by Direct Debit.
Line rentals and other fixed charges are billed one month in advance and call charges, once month in arrears.
Customers are normally required to pay their bills within fourteen days of receipt or within the agreed terms. Where this doesn't happen then White Horse Telecom may chase payment by calling and/or sending reminders.
If there is no response to the initial contact made and/or full payment of the arrears is not made, then the customer's services may be restricted. The customer will be reminded that continued non-payment will lead to full disconnection of the service. We will follow this with debt recovery procedures, which would include the disclosure of relevant customer information to the appropriate credit vetting agencies leading to a possible bad credit history.
White Horse Telecom reserves the right to suspend all services without notice if the company has grounds to believe that there is an unacceptable credit risk.
Any customer must settle all outstanding debts and may be subject to additional credit checking and reconnection charges before service is re-provided.
The existence of this code will be brought to the attention of customers experiencing payment difficulties.
Customer service and complaints
We believe that every customer deserves and expects their enquiries and requirements to be handled swiftly, personably and professionally.
Our dedicated Customer Service team maintain regular contact with all our customers to ensure all service needs are met and we adopt a 'single point of contact' rule so you can be assured of getting through to the right person straight away, rather than being faced with automated call handling to complicate or delay your call.
As a team we endeavour to ensure that all aspects of our service to you are of the utmost importance, however, despite our best intentions, things can go wrong. Any complaint will always be taken seriously and we aim to provide an amicable and quick resolution for all parties concerned.
In addition to contacting our Customer Service team on 01635 276300, it is advised that complaints are made in writing to your Account Manager.
It will be our aim to keep you up to date with all advances regarding your complaint; however, should you feel this method still fails your expectation and your complaint has remained unresolved for a period in excess of eight (8) weeks, it is recommended you contact the Managing Director.
Compensation and refund policy
Our compensation and refund policies are in line with our Terms and Conditions and are normally executed by way of a credit note against invoice. Under circumstances where contract conditions no longer apply and a customer no longer receives invoices, refund or compensation will be made by cheque.
Independent complaints procedure
In addition to contacting the Managing Director, you may wish to consider an independent adjudicator.
The Ombudsman Service: Communications is approved by Ofcom.
A complaint can be referred to the Ombudsman Service if three (3) months has passed since the complaint was first made or that you have received confirmation from White Horse Telecom stating that the issue has reached 'deadlock'.
The Ombudsman Service will take information from both parties and make an unbiased decision based on the merits of the case.
