Minimum contracts

What's a chap to do if he wants t'internet, phone, tv etc, but isn't likely to be staying for a year (and isn't allowed to put up a satellite dish)? I would have stayed for longer but a) I'm expected to work full-time hours on 3/4 pay and holidays and b) might have another post lined up elsewhere.
Everywhere seems to be offering min. 1 year packages which aren't an awful lot of use to us at the moment. We could just about get by with no phone (Swisscom payphones are quite cheap for international calls) or tv, but I think Mrs Boris would quite like t'internet so she can wazz my wages on eBay.
Any suggestions welcome.

Tony

Re: Minimum contracts

Me? Making my pregnant wife and mother of one already work? Are you mad?
Heh heh, the cash would be nice, but by the time the childcare bill comes in, there ain't much point.
We only found out about the second baby the other day!

Re: Minimum contracts

usually, leaving the country gets you out of these domestic service contracts.

Re: Minimum contracts

Awesome! As soon as the pay packet stops rattling around the inside of the empty account, it's off to Cablecom, then...
