To change your internet provider, let your new ISP take care of it!
A few years ago, it was mandatory to write a cancellation letter to his operator to terminate his subscription. Now switching to an internet operator is much simpler, at least if you want to keep your landline number from your old to your new operator. In this case, it is the new operator who takes care of everything. He will take charge of the subscription to the new contract, keep the landline number on the new subscription and especially cancel the contract of the former operator.

As the website of ARCEP (the French telecoms policeman) indicates: "The subscriber must not terminate the contract which binds him to the operator he wishes to leave; it is the new operator of its choice that takes this step in its place as part of the implementation of its portability application. "

How much does it cost to change ISPs?
Here, there are no obvious answers: it depends on the context. Depending on the type of contract you have taken out with your previous operator, why do you change your operator (do you move out, did you lose your job?), Your remaining commitment, or if you move from ADSL to fiber, all at a potential cost. But there are points common to all these situations to know.
Depending on whether one is hired or not, or that one's personal situation is particular, termination fees can vary greatly.
An almost systematic cancellation fee for all operators, but …
Unlike mobile offers, all ISPs, whether Orange, Sosh, SFR, RED, Bouygues Telecom or Free, ask their customers to pay a cancellation fee if they want to go to one of their competitor. These fees differ from one operator to another, but are generally in the range of 50 to 70 euros.
RED regularly offers rebate offerings to encourage users to change ISPs.
The good news is that these same operators are almost always offering offers for reimbursement of the cancellation fees of the former operator. Refunds that can go up to 100 euros following the offers of ISPs and which are usually done directly on invoices (not direct payment).
