Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Is anything in the contract about that obligation please?
there isn't anything specific in the contract saying they would or wouldn't disclose the information. They will only tell us they are using a third party. We signed up we didn't think this would be an issue. We work with other suppliers providing they same service, they have always provided any required information
Did they ever tell you they were directly providing the service rather than 3rd party?
no, we have always known it would be provided by a third party. We just pay their bill, any support issues they are our point of contact. As an example though my home broadband is supplied by EE, but I know BT own the infrastructure it runs on.
Ok. They do not have to disclose it.
As you say you can go to Tiscali who sell the service but as you say BT own it and just rent it out to them.
So unless they are doing anything that is misleading then no they do not have to tell you.
Tiscali dont say come to use for broadband, provided by BT
Your contract is with the company you contracted with
well I cant tell if we are being mislead or not as I have no information on it or anyway to prove it is what they are selling
Their contract is with the third party.
As long as the company you contracted are providing the service then that is enough
agreed, but Tiscali would tell the customer the problem is with BT :)
You have no right to demand who their provider is.
No they wouldn't neessarily - you would get through to Tiscali helpline, not BT
OK, if that's the law nothing I can do - Thank you
then the BT engineer turns up at your house
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Yes but in THAT example its a matter of contract between Tiscali and BT
Its nothing to do with you, their arrangements
im not blaming you, if that's the law then nothing I, or you can do
The same with Tesco selling beans, they dont tell you who has made them. It could well be Heinz
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
nope that's all, thank you
Great. Can I help with anything else today that might be troubling you?
nope that's it
