Credit Management

There are occasions when we may need to suspend or disconnect your service. These situations are outlined in our general terms, which you can review here

What communications you can expect from us

We want you to know what is happening with your account, so we will attempt to communicate with you a number of times about an unpaid bill. Our aim is to let you know about your rights and obligations and support you to continue using our telecommunication service. It’s your responsibility to inform us if your contact details change.

We may attempt to communicate with you using more than one method and may also contact you at different times of the day.

If we contact you, please respond so we can make payment arrangements and avoid proceeding to disconnection. You can expect the following communications from us regarding an unpaid bill:

  1. An invoice that tells you the amount due and the due date
  2. A reminder notice 5 days later if the due date is missed
  3. A second reminder notice 5 days later
  4. Temporary service suspension 5 days later
  5. A further notice 7 days later that will specify the date on which we need to receive payment by to avoid a disconnection of your telecommunication service

Note: If we attempt to contact you by phone, we may not leave a voicemail, and we may ring you multiple times to speak with you. We do not use a blocked number.

In the event that a suspension leads to disconnection due to non-payment, we'll send you another notification detailing the consequences if your debt is referred to a collection agency. This may include a credit default and additional collection costs on top of your Now account balance.

If you're facing challenges, we're here to help. Reach out to us.

Feedback and Complaints

Making a complaint

As a team we strive to deliver on our promises. But we understand that sometimes you might want to let us know we've not lived up to what you were expecting. If this happens, it's really important to let us know. We take complaints from our customers seriously, not only because we want to put things right but it's a great source of learning for our people.

Over the Phone

Often the best way to get a problem solved is over the phone, you can call us on 0800 438 669

By Email

If you've tried calling or would rather, do it online then you can email us. Please ensure to include the nature of your complaint and any specific details you think would be useful to help us get to the bottom of it (things like dates, names, times).

What do we do with complaints?

We aim to provide an initial response within 24 hours of receiving your complaint (during our business hours of Monday - Friday, 8am - 9pm). We will make our best efforts to resolve complaints within 20 working days. Depending on the nature of the complaint it may take longer to investigate and come to a resolution that works best for you.

What if I need to take my complaint further?
