If you have an issue you can’t resolve directly the TIO can be great for mediating the situation. 


Typically however, they would require you to have attempted to reasonably resolve the complaint with the telco directly, so lodging an official complaint.


going to the TIO over ever little thing does nothing but overload the already overloaded TIO with basic issues which likely would have been resolved directly in 1/3rd the time. In turn making it slower and less helpful for people who actually need it.

Hey 21FMpbLfp,

Thank you for your post. I am sorry to hear you have had to engage the TIO, was there an outstanding issue you needed a hand with?

Happy to help any way we can.
