Re: [IA] moving and MC is trying to charge friend disconnect fee

yaaaayyY!!!! v_lestat See Profile, the cable and internet expert has returned!

i suspected so but the moving to an area outside of their coverage would supersede that wouldnt it?

I don't know why that would supersede anything. There is nothing in our current laws that would supersede a contract because you moved.

Because it's the right and ethical thing to do, but we all know that's not how Mediacom does business.

This is no different than a cell company's ETF. You enter into an agreement with the company to buy service for a period of time. If you break that agreement before the it jas matured then you are charged an ETF.

Mediacom is simply holding the customer to the agreement that they agreed to. If Mediacom disconnected the service early then there would be a valid argument for not having to pay the ETF.

I've seen USCC let people out for moving. Of course they will terminate you anyway if you roam to much.

That's neither here, nor there.

I was speaking to the legal aspect... we all know Mediacom is evil... I can attest to the fact. I remember knockout dragout screaming arguments between myself and management officials about their first "home networking" product and it being required to have their old "Max" internet speeds... Along with the $150 installation fee...

One of the main reasons I was happy to separate myself from them in 2007.
