Sunrise Mobile internet unlimited cancellation

Hi guys,

I've recently order Sunrise Mobile internet unlimited in an attractive price thinking I will give it a shot since there is no minimum duration of the contract. If it will be not fast enough, I will just cancel.

So I've got it yesterday and maximum speed I was able to get was 30 Mbps, which is not satisfying at all (they advertise with 300). I ask them about the cancellation and was really surprised to hear that my contract if for 24 months.

Here is that offer:
https://www.sunrise.ch/en/residentia...unlimited.html

If you take a look it says:
Minimum duration: no minimum duration
Cancellation: The subscription may be terminated at any time with a notice period of 60 days.

When I was talking with their employee through their chat, I send that link that I pasted above to discuss more clearly. Do you know what employee did say? That she cannot open that link. Link to their own website.

I am confused and don't know if that is their policy or they just have a big mess there.

Did someone of you also experienced something like this? For me it is clear that this offer is without minimum duration, but maybe I'm wrong.

Re: Sunrise Mobile internet unlimited cancellation

If you are referring to the discount they had, that was indeed 24 months minimum duration. I'm using that too.


Now the action is over, there is only the regular price and indeed no 24 month minimum.

It was pretty clear when I took the option that it was a 24 month deal."up to: 300 Mbit/s" allows for you being only able to get 30Mbit/s. Just tested on my phone and it's 150 for me at this moment. The option you link to is only mobile internet, so maybe it wasn't the same as what I got, which is unlimited everything for a much lower than usual price.

Call them again if this was not taken during a special offer. The staff don't always get it right.

Re: Sunrise Mobile internet unlimited cancellation

Guys, this offer is still available, so you can see how they present that:

https://www.sunrise.ch/en/residentia...unlimited.html

It is 19 chf per month. If somehow this link works differently for you I am posting screenshots:






Don't get me wrong. I know how the world works and that small text is important. But if this above is not true to what you buy, then this is a completely direct lie.

Then you definitely have a case and should call them again.

Re: Sunrise Mobile internet unlimited cancellation

Call them. Also most likely when you signed up, you probably got an email with agreement details. What does it say there??

dschungelkompass.ch lists all "special offers" available in the telecom branch:
https://www.dschungelkompass.ch/news/aktionen/

Also your offer is listed there, clearly with a 24 months minimum duration.
https://www.dschungelkompass.ch/news...statt-49.xhtml

May be lightly deceptive with an entry page stating no minimum duration and a change on the next step/page, but as @jjake writes, it was stated also in that page, while still hidden behind the i icon.

Don't think you will find any valid legal grounds to fight this, but there might be goodwill on sunrise's side such as allowing you to step back from the contract. But I doubt ...

It's more than likely that at the time you ordered the big discount was due to you being locked in for 24 months. Always read the small print and terms and conditions at the time you order.

Regarding opening the link, some companies do not give internet access to their call center employees.

I had this offer, and it was dreadful.

The internet stability was awful (I live near Baden, and it just kept cutting out) and very quickly, I just stopped using it.

I told Sunrise how dreadful the reliability was, and asked if i could cancel that (19 CHF/month) contract and sign up for a 40 CHF/month home internet contract instead ? After all, they'd be getting twice as much money out of me.

Their reply... no. You'd need to pay 400+ CHF to buy your way out of the 24-month contract.

They did, several months later, finally agree to cancel my contract, but seriously, I wouldn't recommend any Sunrise 4G+ offers, unless there's a "no minimum contract" clause. Or, better yet, go with Yallo (who use Sunrise's network) as often they have better prices/terms and conditions.

So many people get suckered in by theselow prices, not realising that the service is terrible and the ISP conditions regarding privacy etc are really sub-par. I tried Sunrise out of curiousity last year and I had 3 days of outage starting on my first day of connection. I immediately cancelled my contract.

I would much rather pay more for a fast and stable internet connection with good privacy and net neutrality conditions and that's why I stick with Init7.

Re: Sunrise Mobile internet unlimited cancellation

Got something like this earlier this year from one of the shops (the mobile internet only abo) and after some days of frustration due to the super slow speed, I called them. But the guys on the phone are not the same as the guys from the shop… so they told me to go back to the shop. I went back to the shop with some screenshots of the speedtests I did throughout the few days showing speeds of less than 1Mbps, and they promptly cancelled the contract, though I am out of pocket by about Fr.20 for the simcard.

Same scenario with me.

Back in February when I arrived in CH, had to rent an AirBnB (with very poor internet connection) while looking for a more permanent residence.
I went with a mobile 4G router offer from Sunrise. It was 19CHF and didn't pay attention to the 24 months clause.

Sadly, internet via 4G is atrocious.

I found myself a permanent apartment since september. I signed up for a DSL connection, I went to a Sunrise shop and showed them screenshots of my speed with the 4G router, I keep calling tech support and for almost a month now, they keep stalling with my request to cancel the contract.

My question here is, how did you manage to convince them to cancel without paying the 400+ CHF fee? Did you request speaking with a manager or superior?

I guess you'd have to convince them or a reasonable person that what they have offered is not as described and/or not fit for purpose. If you have records of complaints from February this would help. If you have a convincing argument but telephoning doesn't help, if it were me I'd write to them and stop paying, contesting any Betreibung which might come. If you only just now decide that it's not what you want then you'll probably be unlucky. I find 4G internet to be sufficient for email/ youtube etc but if you're not getting what was sold to you then you have a right to complain.

Re: Sunrise Mobile internet unlimited cancellation

Now the minimum duration is updated as follows:

No minimum duration unless subscription is taken with a promotional offer.

I guess you took the promotional offer and is stuck with it for 24 months.

I think its very bad practice that they update the conditions as they go alonmg.. clearly from the replies here on EF it was surely not stated before

Actually that aspect doesn't really matter.
I think by law they are required to accept the premature cancelation of a contract, without fees, if the service provided is not up to par.

In cases like mine, the 4G internet connection that's supposed to be provided, is almost non-existent. It's not my fault.

If they want to penalize me with 400CHF for the cancelation, I will refuse to pay and contact the Ombudscom.
