    Lightyear customer service quality

    We define the quality of a broker's customer service based on its response speed (e.g. if they answer the phone within a few minutes, it counts as quick, but if they make you wait a lot, that’s considered a poor response speed) and their response relevance (i.e. whether they provide a clear answer to your questions or an ambiguous one that needs further clarification).

    Response speed at Lightyear


    Lightyear is quite unpredictable. Sometimes answers come pretty fast, but getting feedback only after 2 days is also not unheard of.
