Today I have spent almost an hour on three separate occasions trying to cancel my account which is due to run out on November 6 2016 I have been unable to get any where this evening I spoke to someone on the chat part of bt only to be told
(A) that they were untrained at this sort of thing and
(B) they suggested that I call bt on landline to cancel.
I was then passed to a supervisor who told me if I cancelled my account it would cost me 531 pound, i asked what for a month then where did he get that number from he declined to answer, in august when I first attempted to cancel I was told it would cost 209 pounds because I had a box, I told them I did not have a bt box, I was then offered a very low new contract almost half my current rate.
I said I would accept it provisionally provided that if I felt inclined I could cancel again before Nov 6 2016, I was told I would have to give 30 days notice and would therefore have to cancel on Oct 6 2016 today so I tried. Eventually I received a call from the BT options department they asked why I wanted to cancel I gave several reasons such as mobile signal was crap, telephone repairs were not carried out properly etc etc, then I asked so can you cancel it . He said he would not cancel it, I asked if he was refusing to cancel my bt on Nov 6 when it ends and he replied he would not cancel it.
