Is the business being sold or is your contract being assigned?

Im not sure. Attached is the email they sent. our original contract with Solution Telecom, now they tell me its moving to iDaq.

Does the contract allow them to assign?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Not sure, attached is what we signed. I have requested a copy of the T&C to see if its worded as you say.

I just found this in their T&C...

10.1 The Service Provider may, but the Customer shall not (without the prior written consent of the Service Provider such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), assign or delegate or otherwise deal with all or any of itsrights or obligations under this Agreement.
10.2 The Customer agrees without restriction in the case of liquidation, insolvency or business re-organization to inform the Service Provider at the earliest opportunity. The Service Provider can only provide services where there is a written service agreement in place, and change of business name, trading style or ownership will result in suspension of services unless a new network agreement is in place and all outstanding charges are settled at the time of the change. A surety may be required before service is provided for the incoming administration.

Thank you. Its bad news I am afraid, you are contractually bound, this is because they can assign or sell the contract and you agree to allow it without restriction.
I am sorry if this is nor the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
