WooHoo Ai Code of Practice
At WooHoo Ai Ireland (‘WAII’), we are passionate about customer service. Our aim is to provide you with the best possible service and experience and continue being recognised as Ireland’s most recommended network. Customer feedback is key, and we encourage our customers to give us feedback, positive or negative about our products and services so that we can try and address any issues raised. If you have a query or need to discuss any aspect of your service or experience, please contact our Customer Care team using the following contact points:
National Call: +353 (1) 211-8666 charged at 20c per call, or 60 seconds worth from your bundle minutes
Address: WooHoo AI Ireland Youghal Cork.
*Note: the online form and chat mediums can used as a first point of contact only if raising a complaint. If using chat as a means to submit a complaint, you must submit a private message to WooHoo AI so that it can be logged and recorded as a complaint.
Complaints Handling Policy
Definition of complaint: is an issue raised by a customer relating to a product or service or WAII’s complaint handling process which remains unresolved following an initial attempt by WAII to resolve it or where there has been no attempt by WAII to resolve it and the customer now expresses dissatisfaction through one of the channels set out in the code of practice – ultimately the issue remains unresolved to the customers satisfaction.
A complaint can only be logged / recorded on our systems once we are assured that we have already had an attempt to resolve the issue, but failed. For example if a customer raises an issue / concern with us we will endeavour to resolve the issue while being on the call, via chat or email i.e. first call resolution – that’s not deemed a complaint. Another example is where a customer raises an issue and it is not possible to provide a resolution immediately as the issue requires a full investigation. In this case, we would endeavour to provide a full response and resolution within the timeframes set out below – see targeted minimum resolution times for the five main categories of enquiry and /or complaint. Where a resolution cannot be reached within these target timescales, WAII will endeavour to notify the customer periodically of the status of the issue until a resolution is achieved. However, if the customer is not satisfied with the progress of the investigation or resolution proposed they may request to have the issue escalated to a supervisor or team leader – see internal escalation process below.
If the supervisor or team leader is unable to resolve the issue or you remain dissatisfied, it is at this point that you may request to log a complaint.
Complaint Handling Process & Escalation
Note above the contact points available for our Customer Care team – you can raise a complaint with them using your preferred method. Please quote your Unit number when submitting your complaint to help us keep track and record of your complaint.
Upon receipt of your complaint our Complaints Team will contact you within 48 hours to acknowledge your complaint and where possible provide you with a resolution. Our Complaints Team will endeavour to resolve your complaint within 10 working days. If however we are unable to resolve your complaint and/or provide you with a final resolution within 10 working days we will let you know the reason for the delay, the steps we are taking to resolve the complaint and advise you of a provisional resolution date. In addition we will provide details of our internal escalation process and contact details for ComReg should you wish to escalate externally.
All complaints will be recorded, including any related correspondence, and will be retained for one year past the Complaint Resolution date.
Categories of Enquiry/ Complaint

Escalations & Disputes
If you feel that our Customer Care team, including the Complaints Team have not fully resolved or handled your complaint in a satisfactory manner, you can refer your complaint to our Customer Care Manager. Our Customer Care Manager will further investigate your complaint, and endeavour to resolve this within 10 working days. The Manager will keep you up to date as the investigation progresses.
You can contact the Customer Care Manager as follows:
Letter: Customer Care Manager, WooHoo AI Ireland, Stone house youghal Cork Ireland.
Please note that in the instance of a billing error, we will reimburse the affected account as soon as we become aware of the discrepancy. All complaints requiring compensation are made on a case by case basis. This is regardless of whether a reimbursement or a settlement payment is being compensated.
WooHoo AI issues its bills once a month, with the payment due date printed on the bills. Bills for mobile services that are not paid within the credit period, and are still due after the expiry date, will be liable for disconnection – before doing this we will endeavour to contact you to remind you that your bill is overdue. In the case of a formal billing compliant being lodged by a customer and a dispute subsequently ensuing, the service will remain available to the customer while WAII is handling the dispute, providing that payment is made on any undisputed portion of outstanding bills and that WAII is satisfied that the complaint is a bona fide issue relating to the calculation of charges. Upon resolution of the dispute, any amount deemed due by WAII will become payable immediately, where it is outside the credit terms of the original bill. If not, WAII reserves all its contractual rights to terminate the contract and service of that customer if bills remain unpaid.
