Dodo complaint handling triggers ACMA investigation

Appeal knocked back

Dodo Australia is being investigated by the The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) after it breached the Telecommunications Act for its handling of customer complaints.

The inquiry was launched following advice from the Telecommunications Ombudsman (TIO) which highlighted a surge in customer complaints about the company's dispute resolution process.

Dodo failed to act on the breach following an order by the ACMA in September last year.

ACMA chairman Chris Chapman said Dodo will be fined if it does not comply with the order.

"ACMA is using its formal enforcement powers in order to ensure that customers of Dodo are offered the same level of consumer protection as customers of other telecommunications providers," Chapman said.

"ACMA still considers that Dodo has a sufficient way to go before it will become fully compliant with the Complaint Handling and Billing Codes, which are the important consumer protections we're interested in restoring."

The ACMA knocked back an appeal by Dodo in January this year.

The investigation was launched under section 121 of the Telecommunications Act.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
