Am i reading this correct, can anyone confirm?
British Gas charge £249 to install Hive for you. If you have one of their protection products you can have it for £9 a month on a 24 month term. But if you cancel within the first 12 months you pay £150 fee upfront to cancel or £70 fee if you cancel within the second year.
Therefore if you get it installed then cancel straight away doesn't this make it cheaper? £150 cancellation fee plus the first £9 payment after install (total £159)
Or have i got this completely wrong?
