Where applicable the minimum contract term for our services will be 12 months. We aim to provide services within three working days of your original request, subject to the availability and installation of any equipment and, where appropriate, lines to your premises. If we need to carry out a survey of your premises or lay additional cabling, we will inform you of the revised timescales as soon as we can.
If you decide to cancel your order or agreement before we have provided the services, you may do so without charge within fourteen days of your order being placed. For cancellations after fourteen days, we will charge you an administration fee as set out in your contract. If you wish to terminate your contract within the minimum term of 12 months, please email us at email@example.com. We will charge you a fee as set out in your contract. After the minimum term you can cancel any service by calling our Customer Service Helpdesk on 01275 871122, giving us 1 months’ notice.

Our policy is to assess each claim on a case by case basis. We aim to investigate any claims and respond within 4 working days. Any refunds that are due will be credited to the next month’s invoice.
Our pricing structure is available from our Customer Service Team on 01275 871122. We will write to you in advance if we change the pricing structure on your products and services.
We will bill you monthly, quarterly or annually depending on the service provided. You can choose to pay us via a range of options including credit card, cheque and direct debit. These are agreed at the start of your contract. If you wish to change your method of payment at any time, please call our Customer Service Team.
We provide itemised bills as part of our service to you
If you have difficulty paying your bill, please contact us on 01275 871122 and we will try to arrange a different method of payment. We will do all we can to help our customers to manage their bills and avoid disconnection. In any event, you will be given 48 hours’ notice of any decision to disconnect your services.
We make every effort to ensure that our customers are happy with the level of service, and the products and service they receive from us. However, despite our best efforts, things can go wrong. We take customer complaints very seriously and aim to resolve them quickly and efficiently.

FIBREHOP is a trading style of TRIANGLE NETWORKS LTD, an independent company that delivers communications services to business and consumer customers. While we may not provide all the component parts of our services ourselves, we do take responsibility for the services delivered to you.
As such, in the event of an issue we will liaise with our suppliers to ensure that any problems with their services are resolved promptly. We make every effort to ensure that our customers are happy with the level of service, and the products and service they receive from us. However, despite our best efforts, things can go wrong.
We take customer complaints very seriously and aim to resolve them quickly and efficiently. If you have a complaint about any part of our service, please contact our Customer Service Team using one of the following: By Phone: 01275 871122 By Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, By Letter: 7A Triangle Centre, Kenn Road, Clevedon BS21 6HX.
If you telephone, our advisors will ask you about your complaint and seek to resolve the problem while you are on the line. During any discussions we will protect the privacy of the information that we hold on you. To do this we may have to ask questions to confirm that we are speaking to the right person.
If you make your complaint by email or in writing, we will acknowledge receipt, advise how and when we will next respond and provide you with a contact point for checking progress on the resolution of your complaint. We will try to resolve your complaint quickly and efficiently, and to keep you informed at all times. We normally aim to resolve complaints within 10 working days but, depending on the nature of the complaint, this is not always possible. However, if you are not happy with progress in resolving your complaint you can ask the person to whom you are speaking to escalate the matter to their manager, and ultimately to the Managing Director.
If we cannot resolve the problem, we will write to you to say so. If it has been more than 8 weeks from the date you first contacted us to complain or you have received a letter from us saying that your complaint has reached “deadlock”, then you may ask for help from: The Ombudsman Services (see details below): Ombudsman Services – Communications 3300 Daresbury Park, Halton, Cheshire, WA4 4HS T: 0330 440 1614 E: email@example.com W: www.ombudsman-services.org Ombudsman Services is an independent organisation which is approved by Ofcom to provide an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) service. Ofcom-approved ADR services sort out disputes between communications providers and their consumer and small business customers. Their job is to investigate complaints fairly by listening to both sides of the story. They look at the facts given to them before recommending any action that may be needed to put things right.
Alternatively, if at any time you are not satisfied with the progress of your complaint you can ask us to agree an early referral to ADR (i.e. that we issue a deadlock letter). However, we may decline to do so if we do believe we will shortly resolve your complaint and are taking active steps to do so.
