To cancel services provided by Northern Telecom (those that Northern Telecom bill you for directly) please either email or write to the address provided. We will require all cancellation requests to be submitted as a written request in the form of an email or if you cannot access the Internet send the same details in a letter to our main office address shown.
Note that if you are billed directly by the network provider your cancellation must be made DIRECTLY with the network.
Our minimum term contract periods are:
- Fixed lines (inc ADSL & Fibre) 36 months
- Leased lines 36 months
Some services take a little time to cancel, as they require us to work with special industry processes (such as ADSL). When you cancel your service, we aim to advise you of the time period from us receiving your cancellation request to the time at which the service is withdrawn. During this period, you remain liable for the costs of any services we provide.
Disconnections and cancellation of services
We reserve the right to suspend or cancel your service within the contracted timescales – for example, if you do not pay your bill.
