See how the rates have suddenly increased by almost 30% once we have reduced the minimum contract period* to 1 month: from 28.10 to 35.90 Euros.

This is actually the critically important point - the minimum contract period.
Many foreigners make this mistake - conclude a seemingly cheap contract, two months later see that the provider cannot guarantee the promised speed and are forced to remain bound to a 12- or 24-month contract.

We want to learn from other people's mistakes and look only for providers with a short (1 month) contract period.

For additional 7.80 Euro (35.90 - 28.10) you will get the possibility to "fire" unreliable providers.

In the next article on the exemplary contract completion with O2 you will learn how to conclude a contract, recall the contract or terminate it. See the link below.

* - the minimum contract period see the column on the top left of screenshot 7: Filter tariffs -> Terms of new Contract -> 1 month max.
