Fault-Reporting Call Centre for Telecommunications Operators

During 2010, OTE focused on more effectively managing its relationship with Operators and on improving the quality of the services provided. Significant efforts were made to systematically monitor and analyse the Operators market, with the aim of identifying trends and recording emerging client needs, by accurately determining and studying each customer's individual profile. In 2010, the number of Wholesale Line Rental Services faults addressed was 5.630, of which only 73 took more than 20 days to resolve.
