  • Intermittent service

Sometimes when you have been subscribing to a particular provider for long, it might not be such a simple choice. You could be unsure, scared and the provider would put the best foot forward in trying to dissuade you. But you must stick to your guns. Don’t settle for anything less.

The biggest advantage of making a switch is that the provider always has the best rates, discounts and offers for new customers. Once you decide to switch, the new provider will pamper you with options. These could include,

  • Arrangement to transfer line rental
  • Set up new account
  • Transfer phone number
  • Additional discounts
  • Combo offers
  • Free routers/modems
  • Free internet/talktime
  • Lucrative packages

Sometimes the new provider might even go that extra mile to secure you the MAC code that is required t o switch your broadband account. You don’t even have to make a phone call and voila your account’s switched.

But the golden rule while choosing or making a new deal is, never rush. Take a calm collected decision after carefully going through the fine print of every available offer. Weigh your options, what you would gain or lose if you continued with your existing provider.

However the only problem while switching is though they might spoil you with offers, the new provider will also ask you to sign a contract. You will have to sign a basic minimum 12-month or 18-month contract with the new provider.
