How to cancel your John Lewis Broadband service
While there are no early termination fees for cancelling if you are out of contract, John Lewis has a regular £25 disconnection cost that everyone must pay, regardless of contract status.
Signing up for a new broadband plan on the Openreach (BT line) telephone network is the simplest way to cancel John Lewis.
Because this is the same network that John Lewis uses, your new provider will manage the process, and you may not need to contact John Lewis at all. Look for a new deal, join up, and then sit back and wait for the transition. If you are switching networks or no longer require broadband, you must contact John Lewis and ask for the service to be terminated.
The best way to do this is to call 0800 022 3300. (lines are open daily from 9 am to 6 pm for customer service queries).
