Cancelling with a ISP

Does anybody know how much 'notice' you have to give an ISP if you want to cancel. If anyone knows this for virgin.net it would be extremely helpful! I tried to e-mail them and ask but they insist on calling a phone number...

Thanks :)

I think it will depend on your contract, but something worth knowing is to ask for a "Migration Number" That way your new supplier will find it easier to manage the changeover.

Also, I think that you will have to phone to cancel, you have to with Tiscali.

Well according to this site click here virgin have no 12 month contract so you should be able to cancel at any time without notice. It is probably ethical/courteous to give them some sort of notice though, say 7 days? If you pay by direct debit, just ask your bank to cancel the direct debit. If you pay via your credit/debit card though you cannot cancel it.

You say "but they insist on calling a phone number". Did they give you the phone number? Do you have a problem with that?

Thanks for the replies. pj123, I just find it a bit weird that they can't give me an answer via e-mail like they have done many times before.

Thanks again :)

Possibly want you to phone them, so that they can convince you that you have made a mistake by changing ISP's ;o)

Phone them, and see what happens.

Thanks for all the advice. I'll ring them but I'm going to switch ISP's anyway. :)

P.S. I realise my 'pants' grammar in the thread title!
