Thread: I hate them all

  1. #1

    I hate them all

    Internet (and landline) providers

    Just getting out of a 3 year contract (ended in december) for my landline ..... because ? ........... they had a clause in there saying if I cancelled (or transferred) at any time within the contract ... they wanted 36 times the monthly landline cost for loss of business - some £800+ !!!!
    ANY time within the contract !!
    Yes I'd signed it in a hurry and not read the clause

    They weren't that expensive p.m. but this clause SUCKED big time.. I only found out about it by chance after I tried to change providers last year, set everything in motion and then got a demand letter.

    Sooooo, I'm glad that 3 year contract ended in december - long time coming !!

    So now I'm going to bring my business landline provision to my IP and reduce the collective fee for both from £30 to about £21 p.m.!

    (The get-out clause is a bit better on this one by just wanting the remainder of any unused contract if I cancel mid term - standard practice?, lot better than full term anytime )

    Are you stuck in a contract? Name:  popcorn-and-drink-smiley-emoticon.gif

    That's not right at all WD

    Another thing that irritates me , is when a repeat (ongoing) customer special deal ends, I've had an IP company revert the deal to the old price after it finishes!, and you have to call again to re-negotiate the same deal - double grrrr, like as they assume you'll be ok with that !
