I already gave my notice, so I simply call them and tell them to charge me up to the 6th of april but to cancel my service on the 30th of march for instance?
I believe so.
That's what I meant, at least.
Might be wise to get a 2nd opinion from the ISP who is 'WINNING' your business, but basically, yes.
I take it that you are getting the 10 or higher speed DSL from an Indie, you want it on the same line as where your Bell DSL is now, and are concerned about not being charged for the install.
One OTHER idea, which could work ONLY if you wanted the new service on a different line or on a dry loop - you could force another line on a different wire pair for the new service, leaving the old one to expire as currently arranged.
That last method would only be OK if you had a dry loop and not a full phone line bringing your OLD DSL from Bell, as you would not want to pay extra for a dry loop for the new DSL if you did not need one.
One exception to that last situation might be if you were going to Ananac, who is currently also offering FREE dry loops for 24 or more months, and if you were also happy with the rest of their terms, such as paying ahead to get their best rate, wanted their unlimited monthly usage, and so on, in which case you might not care whether your old line continued with just phone on it.
In some ways that would be more complicated, as you would most likely have to run a new wire in your house (from the new DSL demarc point to wherever your DSL modem is located), but easier in others as there would be no interference from other phone gear on your new DSL wire and no filters needed anywhere, and if you ever had a change of mind in future, each wire would not be sharing 2 services and you could cancel whatever you wished without worrying about the other.
And you were hoping for a simple answer.
