I will never be a customer, or refer any family/friends to xnet ever again, directly becuase of them charging me for a full month of usage when my internet had been moved over to a new ISP.

They said Telecom charge us, so we have to charge you.... this is rubbish! Telecom wouldn't charge two ISP's for the same line.

Goodbye xnet....

They would if no-one notifies the losing provider to cancel service.

Yeah but it seems like Xnet just decide to ignore the win back notification from Telecom and keep charging until the customer specifically calls to cancel the account, at least in my experience this is what they do.

Slightly different problem with the reverse result!

In early march my mother was moving from one property to another. There was a few weeks between moving out and moving into the new property, so we did not call Xnet until the day ofter she moved out of the old property. We found that the new people who were moving in a few days later had asked for the internet to be put on a day before mum moved out. Mum's account was canceled by the new tenant's provider. If she wanted to be connected again with Xnet she had to re-apply. This was not going to be an option as the plan she had been on has been discontinued and the current plans on offer were far more than she required and a lot more money. I found it amazing that another provider can cancel your account without your consent. Obviously Xnet do get disconnection notifications.

Weird, I thought that Xnet had removed the 30-day contract sign in? I've been told it's 5 days before hand and then it closes?

And I just reverified(moving back to telecom for better you tube playlist performance...while I do my summer gardening) and I've been told Telecom churned the VFX number on teh 22nd and gave a close notification and that they'll get a message today when my broadband gets churned and that my bill period and final bill ends on the 30th :) although I'll double check that tonight and get in writing/email the final close verification etc

Termination
43. If you do not pay any of the invoices we send to you or you otherwise fail to meet your responsibilities to us we may end our contract with you immediately without notice. Ending the contract between us in this way shall not release you from any outstanding obligations or responsibilities you owe to us.
44. If you want to end the contract between us please write to us at PO Box 3296, Shortland Street, Auckland. Our agreement will end and all charges will cease 30 days after you give us notice that you wish to end this contract provided you have paid us in full all outstanding amounts due to us.
45. On termination of our contract with you, we will cease providing our services to you and all amounts which you owe to us will immediately become due and payable. We shall not be liable to you for any loss or damage suffered, or claimed to have been suffered, by you on or following termination of the supply of our services to you."



The above quoted from http://www.xnet.co.nz/pdfs/terms_wxc.pdf

I have now drafted my 'please cancel' letter for posting to the above address. Unsure why other means of notice aren't OK but based on comments here, figure i'm going to have to play it 'by the letter'.




No signature to see here, move along...

Well mine just churned over, ringing up Xnet for final bill + getting it in writing that it's terminated, with no fee's for October.

Also, if anyone saw the speedtest thread from last week, where i got 0.8 down, 0.6 up :S








Also thought it would be a good idea to run some normal NZ tests:

Slingshot NZ Test:
Xnet 3.8mbp down, 0.7 up
Telecom 11.9 down, 0.8 up


Consumerspeedtest.org.nz
Xnet 4.3mbp down 0.6 up
Telecom 12.7 down, 0.8 up 

Happy Chappy :) For now at least
