TROY, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--From small business to large enterprise, each business wireline segment has different needs from their provider and those needs are increasingly being met, according to the J.D. Power 2023 U.S. Business Wireline Satisfaction Study,SM released today. Overall satisfaction has increased across all three segments: small business (+30 on a 1,000-point scale), medium business (+14) and large enterprise (+13).
“Business wireline providers have shown they can be nimble and cater to each business segment’s needs,” said Ian Greenblatt, managing director at J.D. Power. “Specifically, we see that small business customers quickly want to be informed of outages, why they were caused and that their provider is on top of it. Medium business customers need efficiency, specifically with access to bill pay on mobile apps and customer service contact. Large enterprise customers are receiving provider communications in their preferred format and although they say receiving fewer communications this year than last, they are just as likely to say the frequency as ‘just right.’ Business customer service cannot be a one-size-fits-all approach; flexibility and resiliency is key to continuing an increase in satisfaction.”
In the large enterprise segment, AT&T ranks highest for a sixth consecutive year, with a score of 886. Verizon (880) ranks second.
In the medium business segment, AT&T ranks highest with a score of 861. Verizon (860) ranks second.
In the small business segment, Verizon ranks highest for a fifth consecutive year with a score of 828. AT&T (813) ranks second.
The 2023 U.S. Business Wireline Satisfaction Study is based on responses from 5,141 business customers of data and voice services. The study evaluates business wireline experiences across six factors: performance and reliability; cost of service; communications; sales representatives and account executives; billing; and customer service. The large enterprise segment includes businesses with 500 or more employees; the medium business segment includes businesses with 20 to 499 employees; and the small business segment includes businesses with less than 20 employees. The study was fielded from March through May 2023.
