It's a trap! Be careful of auto-renewals hidden in your phone and internet bill!

Warning: Buyer Beware

A vicious trend has developed among prominent carrier service providers called auto-renewals also known as "evergreen" clauses. Hidden in your carrier service contract is language that automatically renews your services, preventing any opportunity to explore options to optimize or reduce cost on your carrier services.

It's vital that you periodically review your carrier service contract and acknowledge the termination date. Be wary of auto-renewal verbiage sent by the carrier along the lines of:

"Unless notified within 90 days of contract expiration date of intent to cancel services, contract will automatically renew for the same term at the same time."

Locating the auto-renewal clause can be like searching for a needle in a haystack. ATS recommends that you call the customer service line of your carrier provider to obtain the termination date of your contract and request this in writing. This simple process can save you thousands of dollars.

Let ATS Communications help! Send us your contract and carrier service bill and we will perform a carrier service review at no charge. Contact the ATS Carrier Service Department at 925-609-6834 or email to get the process started.
