Alright, a bit of basic background here I'm a 'net nerd and consider the internet a vital service along with water and electricity. Also for those of you that don't know ISP stands for Internet Service Provider; as in the people you pay money to and in return they give you an internet connection (and in Australia are generally all fairly sucky and poor value).
Now last year I moved, and my new exchange was ADSL2+ (fast cheap internet) enabled, I was a fool and didn't check this until after I'd transferred my old standard ADSL account across (hey, I had an awful lot on my mind). So I thought, well it'll cost me money to break my 12 month contract I'll just sit it out and then when it expires I'll switch. 11 months and about 3 weeks later we find ourselves at today, a few weeks back all the ports for ADSL2+ at my exchange filled up (talk about bad timing) but to make matters even more annoying after emailing my ISP and telling them "Hey, look my contract's almost over and I don't want to sign up again" they tell me I needed to give them 30 days notice! Wait, WHAT‽
I thought the whole point of my contract expiring was that our agreement ends, I stop giving you money; you stop giving me internet. So I can either go on for another month (out of contract) or I can pay a cancellation fee and get out at the end of my contract; something I could have done from the start, back when it would have got me my desired ADSL2+.
The whole situation at this point is sucky, particularly when I look and realize that had I have known this say a month or more ago, I could have actually got ADSL2+
