AUSTIN: (TEXAS): After an onslaught of complaints, direct sales computer king Dell Inc. has stopped routing corporate customers to a technical support call center in Bangalore, India.

Tech support for Optiplex desktop and Latitude notebook computers will be handled from call centers in Texas, Idaho and Tennessee, Dell spokesman Jon Weisblatt told The Associated Press Monday.

"Customers weren't satisfied with the level of support they were receiving, so we're moving some calls around to make sure they don't feel that way anymore," Weisblatt said.

The development was first reported Saturday by the Austin American-Statesman.

Weisblatt would not discuss the nature of the dissatisfaction, but some US customers have complained that Indian support operators Indian support operators are difficult to communicate with because of thick accents and scripted responses.
