Load of crap, I've been loyal customer for 3 years, paid part my bill today as all I can afford and said I cannot have service back on until paid rest. Told them can pay next week but said no payment no service told them to cancel my contract as if I was to complain every time service was crap on my broadband they would need to pay me. Worst company ever no sympathy for ppl well I'm going to BT
if you don't pay all of your bill they will usually cut you off until it is paid. bt and sky do the same.
as for cancelling the contract, you have to give 30 days notice of leaving as you are 'out of contract'. of course any monies owed will be followed up and chased. i know that virgin and bt chase owing amounts.
but....by not paying the owed amount promptly it will affect your credit rating and may compromise any future service be it with sky or bt and of course anything else where a form of credit is concerned.
i would have held off for a week, paid it and tried to reduce your package/haggled for a lower amount with retentions. .
