It seems the operator was taking my credit card details and not processing the payment! Leaving me with the impression the bill had been paid. Phone records show I queued for around 30 minutes a month to make payment. Or at least I thought I'd made payment. No director has contacted me. I've been left to the mercy of the same finance department that caused the problem in the first place. Telecoms companies only love NEW customers. There is no loyalty for existing customers in fact we get the worst deal. Come on Meinrad Spenger sort this out.

I've contacted some of the directors via Twitter ... I'll report back if they help me out or not!

How reliable are this company's accounts? I'm a customer of theirs and the mistakes they make sending double bills is incredible. I recently received a 300€ bill for the previous five months bills and one from 2010. Only the most recent was due to be paid. The rest I had already done so. In 2012 the cut me off for non-payment. I had paid and had to prove a credit-card transaction number for the bill ... difficult with no phone and no internet to an UK card company from Spain. Now they are claiming the 60€ from 2010 again! ... Incompetence gone crazy. If they make so many mistakes on a regular basis how can any their accounts be true? Customer TTE100317 of xtratelecom if any directors of this great new telecoms company want to help a client in distress.
