    Default Leaving BT They want nearly 90 for equipment

    Hi all.

    Please could anybody give advice. I am having financial problems and decided to cancel my BT phone, internet and tv and switch to Talk Talk to save 25 a month. My BT account contract is up start of October so I set up my new account to start in September.

    BT want paying for the part month which is fair but also want to charge me 65 for Broadband equipment and 24 for TV equipment which seems unfair.

    Is this right?
    I'm doing my best to reduce my spending and that feels like a kick in the teeth.

    Thanks in advance

    Did you not pay for the router when you started your broadband account with BT? I had to.

    I don't know to be honest. I will log onto my account and see if it's mentioned.

    Thanks

    It appears it is because I am leaving a few days early. Change the date to exactly 12 months into my contract and they won't charge me. Bit childish of them but oh well.

    Cheers all
