Dish Network Customer Service

Or not.

I have been on hold for 37 minutes. At 24 minutes the repeating music was interrupted to tell me that “We are experiencing an extremely high call volume.”

What this means is that Dish has chosen to provide poor service by understaffing their customer service.

As if my time, other customers time, is worth nothing. bo

Happy that we are already using Fubo for the Women’s World Cup because Dish does not carry our local Fox Channel. Dish is on their last legs in this household.

NB: It is now 48 minutes.
