Be wary of Telecom companies

Jenny from Hillcrest

Just to let you all know, I have been dealing with a particular telecom company. I signed up for a $95 plan last year and after the expiration of the plan, I have to pay $140. Initially, they provided the freebies but started charging for it without giving notice after the expiration date. When asked about the notification for what they are going to charge after expiration period, they said the bill of $140 is the notification and the responsibility lies with us, the consumers. They also require 30 days notice to cancel account which is included in the "hidden clause" and 3 working days to action a cancellation.

Then, the new package that they offer are more expensive than the one I signed up for. In another country, consumers would have been given the option to renew the same package and not pay double after the expiration period.

It was a disappointing encounter. Be wary of their tactics.

cheers, Jenny
