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, as you’ll need to 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:
