Counting the cost of the unknown
In every business, it’s often what you don’t see that gets you. We analyzed call-in-rate data from a major ISP in North America and some fascinating facts emerged. While everyone expects network drop-outs to generate the most calls, that’s only the tip of the iceberg. What lurked beneath were a number of significant Wi-Fi-specific problem areas that–when combined–accounted for 25% of technical support calls. Such issues can be challenging for an ISP to resolve, particularly if they lack the network insights and support tools to identify and fix them.
