Early cancellation fees are charged to any customer leaving NOW Broadband before the end of their 12 month contract. The cancellation process is the same but you will be charged a fee for each month remaining on your contract.

- Can I cancel my broadband if NOW raises the prices?
Rules set by Ofcom allow you to leave your broadband contract without paying the cancellation charges if your provider raises its prices mid-term. NOW is required to give you 30 days notice of any price increase and you can then cancel within the next 30 days.
- Can I cancel my broadband if it is too slow?
You do not have a right to cancel for free due to download speed. NOW may allow you to cancel for free if you do not get their minimum guaranteed speed. NOW has not signed up to the voluntary broadband speed code of practice so leaving without penalty not guaranteed. It is possible NOW will release you without penalty, but you may have to pursue it as a complaint.
