Ohh no NRC.

NRC? Do you mean ETC (early termination charge)?

This is a sore point with me in all telco contracts. They want a one- or two-year term, or even three, and in exchange give you a discount on the installation and a tiny MRC reduction. But if you cancel early, they demand full payment for all the remaining months! I realize that the contract is written this way, but why? It doesnâ??t seem fair at all, and as a service provider myself, I know this is actually a huge unearned windfall for the provider. 

To make things worse, many providers subtly plant an â??auto-renewâ?? clause in their contracts. You miss canceling but the end of the contract date, and BOOM, youâ??re on the hook for another two years!

 Iâ??ve been burned by this more than once.

After a few days I received a quote from my new rep quoting a MRC 3x what Iâ??m currently paying for existing xconâ??s as well as a hefty NRC as well.  Anyone have any experience with this kind of thing?  Anyone care to share what an average copper xcon, single floor, meet-me-room to cage, Ethernet from carrier circuit costs?  (This xcon is approx 30 feet..)
