An anonymous reader writes: Los Angeles Assemblyman Mike Gatto has introduced a bill that would allow Californians to cancel their internet or cable services online with ‘one click.’ The bill reads, ”AB 2867 allows Californians to conveniently unsubscribe from a service with a simple click of the mouse,’ said Assemblyman Gatto. ‘It just makes sense, that if you are able to sign-up for a service online, you should also be able to cancel it the same way.’ Rapid advancements in technology grant consumers a wide variety of cable, internet and phone service products from which they may choose, and while companies make it simple to buy or upgrade services, a cancellation request is usually a prolonged ordeal where customers are sometimes pressured into extending their contracts. AB 2867 provides a convenient and consumer-friendly option for Californians to remove unwanted services without a long phone call.’
Bill AB 2867 would in theory spare you from an 18-minute call with a Comcast representative in regard to cancelling your service.
