Thought i was on 12 month contract ?

Took out contract last Sept, found that the upload speeds were ridiculous, so had to upgrade to a higher download to get a better upload speed, even tho we get the lowest download speeds, went to not renew our contract to find out we still have 10 months of 18 month contract!!!!! So when we changed in January it started a new contract and it was a 18 month one..  i never take out 18 month contracts !!!!! really not happy,  i did not know agree to a new contract ? What can i do, i no longer want the service. And unfair contract

Standard at PN, though not it's parent.
When your new contract started you'll have been sent an e mail from ( PN)
detailing length amongst other things.

Hi there.

 

From looking at your account we can see that the 18 month contract was agreed when you upgraded your fibre package. This ticket was left on your account at the time: https://www.plus.net/wizard/?p=view_question&id=142006165

I would not of agreed for 18 month contract, and we had to go for the higher download to get a better upload,, we don't even get 30mb to our line, but are paying for 78,.I really am not happy, anything I can do about it ? 

we are moving away form UK, and can't even transfer this to another property as we ae touring the world, i was expecting a easy cancellation when i logged on yesterday, and now find i have 10 months left which is gonna cost over £150 to change

If this was a straightforward upgrade via the portal , as opposed to renegotiating a new deal, then I thought it had been established here https://community.plus.net/t5/Fibre-Broadband/Query-about-upgrading-account/m-p/1467669 that it did NOT start a new contract

Re: Thought i was on 12 month contract ?

we were disgusted at our upload speed as we couldn't even send pictures via email, so called them many times asking what was going on, it was much worse than our previous supplier, they told us the upload speed was slow as we were on the low download speed ( 30mb deal i think ) they told us we had to pay for the higher download service to get a better upload speed, no where was we told it was a new contract of 18 months, our old contract was 12 months which started sept 16 , thats why i logged on yesterday to end contract to find i still had 10 months left !!!!!

Re: Thought i was on 12 month contract ?

Sorry about the delay. I've discussed this with my manager and as a gesture of goodwill we're happy to write off the contract you and waive the early termination fees.

 

Please note that a cessation charge of £30 may still be applicable if your service isn't transferred to another provider that uses BT equipment at the exchange. More info can be found on the link above.

Thank you very much.
How do I go about cancelling our order. Do we give 4 weeks notice ?
If so how do I do this ?

Fix
No problems at all. We’d just need 14 days notice and I’d advise giving our customer options team a quick call tomorrow on 0800 013 2632 (option 1 then 2).

Sounds like it's going to be epic, though I've never been to that area of the world before. Enjoy!

I'm off to New Zealand next year for a month which I'm really looking forward to.

 

So will call next week to sort out a day for everything to end if that's ok.

That's cool, if you contact us on the number/options above you should get through quite speedily.
