Direct Save Telecom broadband customer service contacts, problems and complaints

How to contact DST customer services and technical support

However reliable a provider may be, there may be times when you need a little help. Whether that’s technical support, a complaint, or something else, being able to contact Direct Save Telecom to get help is essential. This guide to DST customer service and support will tell you how to get in touch with Direct Save Telecom, including customer service opening hours and telephone numbers.

How to contact Direct Save Telecom broadband support and customer service

You have three options for contacting DST: an online contact form, in writing to their postal address, and by phone. 

But the Direct Save Telecom website is a little misleading; it mentions 24/7 customer service a few times but when you dig into the details of its customer service opening hours it does not actually seem to offer 24/7 cover. This is worth bearing in mind if all-hours support is important for you.

Direct Save Telecom contact numbers

While we may do most things online now, sometimes we want to discuss something with a real person. Any provider that doesn’t offer live customer support isn’t one you want to do business with. Fortunately, Direct Save Telecom does have live support available over the phone.

Direct Save Telecom live chat

If you want to talk to someone right now but can’t or don’t want to use the phone, you can use a live chat to talk to Direct Save Telecom.
