I suspect part of the churn fee is to make sure that Telecom makes a buck,
regardless of who is stealing customers from who...
As for $100 a pop... Perhaps the Xtra/JetStream/Telecom (HelpDesk group of
the day) people aren't able to make this change, so it needs to go via a
"technician", which means you have a handling fee plus the X seconds of time
it takes for the tech to locate the user (by phone number I guess) and
select a different ISP to route their traffic to. (Please tell me it's that
simple... If not, perhaps it's time someone wrote an app to make it that
Interesting to note that if an ISP converts it's existing JetStream
customers over to UBS, and runs out of "Churn credits", they then have to
start paying Telecom... For existing customers!
Just my 2c.
And expressly not the view of my employer.
