Microsoft Sending All XP and Vista Tech Support Calls To India?

Microsoft is sending ALL of its XP and Vista tech support calls to India starting March 29th, according to a call center insider. Previously, the call volume was split between a site in North America and locations in Deli and Bangalore.

Our tipster says:

    “I know a lot of the agents in Deli and Bangalore; they are very smart and typically great troubleshooters – but I am also a realist, and I know that when I call support, I don’t like to lose 50% of the call to “communications issues”.

    Anyway, I just thought people should know. We have been told the decision was made by the outsourcer AND Microsoft, and that it was because it makes more money for the company.”
