TROY, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Whether it’s a simple billing inquiry, a plan change or a technical issue, wireless providers are solving customer issues faster than ever, according to the J.D. Power 2023 U.S. Wireless Customer Care Study℠—Volume 1, released today.

Power. “It is particularly noteworthy that we’re seeing consistent improvement in both digital/automated and live channels via interaction with in-store and phone-based representatives.
