Zen Internet down? Here’s what to do.

Start by resetting your router to see if that solves the issue.

If not, check the service status and outages for your area. You can do so via the Zen Internet website, or an independent broadband outage map. (You’ll need to use your phone’s 4G to do so, of course.)

If there is indeed an outage in your area that Zen and/or Openreach are aware of, you may need to just sit and wait for it to be fixed. This usually takes a couple of hours, but you can contact Zen for more information.

If no outage has been reported, get in touch with Zen using the customer service methods above. They’ll investigate, and either look into solving the problem on their side, or talk you through troubleshooting at home.

Zen Internet complaints

Any complaints should first go through the normal Zen Internet customer service channels, as listed above.

If doing so isn’t successful, or if you aren’t happy with how the provider handled the issue, you can escalate it.

See the full breakdown of Zen’s complaints procedure on their complaints page, including the full code of practice.

How to report a Zen Internet complaint the right way

First, go through the normal customer service channels as above. An advisor will investigate and help you solve any issues.

If you’re not happy, you can ask to be escalated to the specialist complaints team, where your query will be treated as a complaint. You can also contact them at At this stage, you’ll be assigned a dedicated Complaints Resolution Manager. They’ll conduct a full review of your issue, the history of your account, and your interactions with Zen to try and find a resolution.

If necessary, you can escalate this further to the Customer Excellence Manager or to the Head of Customer Excellence.

Didn’t get your problem resolved?

If you cannot find a satisfactory resolution with Zen, the next step is to bring in an independent adjudicator.

Escalate your issue to an Alternative Dispute Resolution process through CISAS. CISAS is the Communication and Internet Service Adjudication Scheme, which is Ofcom-approved and managed by CEDR (Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution).
