Moving into place with internet so what happens to current EE contract?

Hi everybody,

I'm currently on month 7 of an 18 month fibre contact with EE but due to some issues I'll be relocating. The issue is that that place already has internet so I don't need to move my contract to the new place.

If I cancel with EE what would I have to pay? I had a look on the EE site and it says that with the plan that I have I would have to pay nearly £20 for every month that is left on my contract. Is this right?

Some advice would be appreciated, thank you.

    Read the small print
    Your broadband contract sets out your rights should you wish to cancel the service. This includes how much notice is required, how to cancel, what equipment needs to be returned and what fees must be paid if you cancel during the minimum contract term.

    Termination fees
    Nearly all providers charge a termination fee if you cancel the service before the minimum agreed period has expired. Typically, you must pay all the remaining monthly subscription fees for the contract period. Even if your broadband deal has no minimum contract period, you may still be charged a cancellation fee if you cancel within the first year.

    You will need to pay for each outstanding month of the contract plus any early termination fee if mentioned in terms and conditions

    Price up your options .
    Move EE to new premises as presumably you have no contract with new premise supplier .
    Or pay off your existing contract you signed to 11 X £20

    Sounds like that's what you contractually agreed to when you committed to the contract with an 18 month minimum term. The fact that you are leaving them unable to supply due to your decision to relocate does not relieve you of your obligations under the contract.

    So yes, it's right, given the information you have presented here and reasonable inferences from it.
