That would have happened regardless of what they did with the call centres.

Yes indeed, without a doubt.

So they are importing the call centre staff from India etc.. ? Or employing existing immigrants here?

The location of the call centre is irrelevant, if it has the same tired scripts and incoherent staff then where is the advantage?

Location is relatively unimportant.

Technical competence is the primary issue, followed closely by the ability to understand and speak English clearly. Strong regional accents can be problematical, irrespective of whether the Call Centre is in London, Glasgow, Tyneside, Merseyside, Belfast or Mumbai.

It's the scripting that has always been the problem for me. The accents are normally easy enough to understand and the staff are polite. In some cases (Barclays/Woolwich) the Indian call centres are actually more effective.

To an extent I'm pleased as in my experience (and recently that has been far more extensive than I would like) BT customer support is abysmal. The only thing I have noticed is that if I'm talking to someone in the UK they tend to pick up on frustration a little better whereas in India they apologise a lot and it's obvious it's scripted. Once or twice I have spoken to someone in the UK that has been good, but it's the exception rather than the rule.

My biggest problem with BT is the lack of information given back. You report a problem and an "order" goes in, but there's no indication of what the problem is or what the course of action is going to be. Makes me feel like a mushroom..... Kept in the dark and fed *****.

Good news, smoother handling of calls/complaints and bringing more jobs back to the UK
