My daughter ordered a BT Infinity package online for her new house. The builder had already installed the equipment so all BT had to do was send the Router and Youview box in the post. This was on the 30th of March. On the 5th of April she decided to cancel as she soon found out she would have to get an outdoor aeriel installed to get more than the 10 channels with the package.
Even though she cancelled on the 5th of April BT didn't switch off the service until the 13th of April.
On the 24th of April she got a bill for £101.44 saying it had to be paid by 25th April.
Unless you dig deep down into the terms and conditions you would assume "Cancel within 14 days" was a no cost option.
I'm sorry to hear about the problems she had. Did your daughter get everything sorted in the end? If you need any help at all please let me know.
can you help
I do think this needs to be looked into. If you are happy, I'd like my team to go over everything and see if there is anything that we can do to help you. We'll be able to speak with you about it providing your daughter has given permission and you can, privately, provide us with the account number.
