You agreed to abide by the terms of the contract when you established service. One of those terms is to pay the $150 early cancellation should you not fulfill the term commitments.
An official Earthlink rep who has posted here at DSLR describes it best here
: "Your phone company needs to do various things to your line before you are able to receive a DSL signal into your home. These various things do come with a price, and we (EarthLink) are financially penalized if you do not keep your DSL circuit active for 12 months."
