Or the services you can only cancel once a year,
may not give early notice of cancellation, and if
you miss the window, you're on the hook another year.
Any contract we do with our customers is always
MCP - Minimum Contract Period with automatic
month to month renewals at the end - unless we're
buying the facility from another carrier, then we mirror their terms.
Colo providers try to set it up so that the terms
for all your different services with them expire
on different intervals to try to make it
impossible for you to ever cancel without lots of pain.

NRC? Do you mean ETC (early termination charge)?
This is a sore point with me in all telco
contracts. They want a one- or two-year term, or
even three, and in exchange give you a discount
on the installation and a tiny MRC reduction.
But if you cancel early, they demand full
payment for all the remaining months! I realize
that the contract is written this way, but why?
It doesnât seem fair at all, and as a service
provider myself, I know this is actually a huge
unearned windfall for the provider.
To make things worse, many providers subtly
plant an âauto-renewâ clause in their
contracts. You miss canceling but the end of the
contract date, and BOOM, youâre on the hook for another two years!
Iâve been burned by this more than once.
