Complaint regarding technical support

I have been a subscriber for 5 years.  Until this year I have receved fantastic all-American technical support. 


During the past two days I have spent 3 and a half hours in the chat box with agents in India and Panama.  Their customer service is appalling.  Rude.  Obviously scripte .  No answer to telephone calls.   Only robo answers that cannot help you.


I am seriously thinking of purchasing a subscription to another provider.  I used to love chatting with the Geek Squad who ALWAYS fixed my problem.  Now I get so frustrated I yell, cuss, and finally give up.  My problems are NEVER solved.


1.  Agents are working on too many computers at once. 

C'mon Geek Squad.  Do you want to keep your customers or not?

2.  Nobody in Customer Service can speak English.  I am English and know when someone cannot!

3.  3 1/2 hours trying to get the Geek Squad to help me is unacceptable.

4.  Today, three times agents hung up on me.  Four agents refused to call me even though there is a button in the chat box that says call the agent!  Remove that button.
