What happened

Every single time I get the electronic foboff voice telling me anticipated wait time is over 30 minutes. Every. Single. Time. No option for them to ...

What I wish had happened

0800 number and answer their phone (in up to 5 minutes) or offer me a placeholding callback.

What happened

What happened

On the bill dated 24/04/2020 the electric charge for the period 10/04/2020 to 14/04/2020 (5 days) is £90.80! (We should only be...

What I wish had happened

I would have liked a simple explanation on why we received 4 bills, how these had been worked out and why when we have a smart meter they estimated readings. I want to pay the final bill - but I want confidence that it is correct.
