How to cancel italk Broadband

What you need to know about cancelling italk Broadband

If you’re currently subscribed to italk Broadband, but you’ve decided the service is no longer working out, we have some tips on how to cancel. Find out how much it will cost and how to get in touch with this easy guide.

What to do before you cancel italk Broadband

As long as you’re out of contract, cancelling italk Broadband will be a simple process. In most cases, you shouldn't have to do much admin and a new provider should do most of the work for you.

If you’re still under contract with italk, things get a little trickier. Before you cancel, it’s important to check the small print of your original agreement. You should also pay special attention to when you signed up, and how long your contract was for.

Check your contract

If you’re still in contract with italk, leaving early will mean you have to pay a termination fee. 

If you can, it’s best to wait until your contract ends before you look for another provider.

Find a new broadband deal

Unless you’re cancelling because you no longer need broadband (or maybe you’re moving into somewhere with a contract already in place), you need to look elsewhere. 

Make sure you spend time browsing the current broadband deals, so you can decide which provider you’re switching to. You’ll need your new broadband package in place, so everything can be cancelled and arranged quickly.

Finding a new provider is simple with Broadband Genie. To get started, enter your address and find out what’s available in your area:

Expert Summary

Whatever your reason to cancel your italk contract, it’s something that you should have little problem doing. In many cases, you won’t even have to worry about sorting out your direct debit. Your new provider will make the admin arrangements for you (this currently won't be the case if you're moving to Virgin Media or possibly a smaller, independent broadband provider).
