An angry customer said this in a review "Stay away from this company! UPC Chello made me sign a contract in a language that I do not understand, and have been forcing me to pay monthly bills since I have been out of the country. I have contacted them repeatedly, with no response, and am now being bullied by a collection agency into paying a significant fine. As I am young, I was a little naive going into this, but I have now been advised that being forced to sign a contract in another language is illegal, and the contract is unenforceable. Furthermore, being bullied into paying for the internet after having tried to terminate the contract on several occasions is not ok. This company is truly terrible. Please do not make the same mistake I did and trust these scammers".
