Hi Orcon, I have really enjoyed your UFB Service the past almost two years. Unforunately I decided to change ISPs, as you didn't offer the plan I was after.

 

Now time for a story you may have heard before, I ring customer support and request disconnection and understand regarding the 30day notice and say that is fine. A few days later Orcon has been disconnected. Follow up email and Orcon expect me to pay until the notice period.

 

I am confused.. why would Orcon put through the disconnection request without waiting until the 30day notice we agreed? 

 

What are my options to get this resolved? Orcon customer service seem to just read things off the screen to you.

The First Half of the story is I contacted the first ISP to arrange the connection late december. I assumed back then that UFB transfers worked similar to that of ADSL. When there was no connection I asked my new ISP and they told me to contact Orcon. I was away at the time so contacted Orcon last week. 

 

To answer your question no I didn't. I thought that the date she gave me in February was the date of disconnection (after 30 day notice).

If you phone for a disconnection date always follow up with an email so that there is a trail  if this this sort of thing happens.

Yes get every thing in writing, although companies claim they record calls so there should still be a paper trail

Would like to thank Cam for his help resolving the matter. There was obviously some confusion with cancellation date and 30day notice. Thanks for everything for the advice, especially to get things in writing which would have saved a bit of hassle. 

 

Thread can now be closed as all is well. Thanks again.
