Home Internet and 2-years contract cancellation clause in Poland

Good evening!

I'm an expat that recently relocated to a new flat where internet is not already provided.

I went to Inea (among the available internet companies in my area) to sign a new home internet contract but I slowed down when I realized that the contract for non-students last minimum 2 years and the cancellation penalty is huge (I would have to pay all the remaining months with an extra fee), since I'm not sure that I'll stay in that flat for many months or even in Poland for more than 1 year.

Are you informed about internet companies that have more flexible contracts with the cancellation clause?

Thanks in advance.

Most contracts for a broadband internet in Poland last 1 or 2 years. In fact I do not reckon now any major Polish internet prowider which offers shorter contracts.

For a mobile internet (of course with data limits) the cheapest option is Virgin Mobile in my opinion - no contracts at all, 2GB of data (obviously expandable) and free calls to PLAY/VM for only 19pln/month.

You can also try to contact any local wireless ISP in your area. They may be more flexible. Or just find a neighbor in your wifi range and try to get along with him to pay for sharing.

Hi Looker and thank you for the reply!

Indeed I thought even about Wireless providers, but actually I've an hard time to get infos not knowing the language.

I know where I live in Poznan other providers than Inea operates but in some of their sites is kinda hard to find the contract clauses.

This provider for example is active in my area:
echostar.pl/

Do you have some names of other home internet companies?
Thank you a lot!

From the well known possibilities of a landline, wired broadband internet check:
Orange (min. 12 month contract):
orange.pl/internet_stacjonarny_indywidualny.phtml
and Netia:
netia.pl/oferta-dom/internet.html
(Now I noticed that they offer also short 6-months contracts for students)

Here you can also get information about possibilities of WIFI in your place (English version available - click on the US flag)
gdzienet.pl
Give the city and address, then search / sign up for offer, and put an e-mail address on which you should get details from providers in range.

Wow thanks Looker!

I already contacted thru gdzienet the available wireless companies in my area and anyway in the next days I'll go to Orange and Netia offices.

Thank you a lot!

You're welcome, I'll just add that it depends on the phone line in your apartment (if you have any - or in the close area; neighbors) - which of the two providers - Orange or Netia could offer their services for you.
