Interesting.

I think a great answer to this is everyone should have a MAC linked to their phone number (just like a meter point refernce for gas/electric/water/phone etc) and that MAC can be given to any new supplier (again just like gas/electric/water /phone etc) when we want to.

The fact we have to wait on the whim of a private company is very unfair.

Not that I'm waiting for a MAC nor am I leaving Plus. However, if I did I would want to move anytime I wanted and let Plus chase me for any monies.

That is how the rest of private industry works and that's what we should have for MAC codes.

Isn't that called a CBUK number? Each line has one when ADSL was provisioned on it. They used to use a form of it before MAC codes, but MAC codes were bought in to improve migration and speed it up, and make it all better for the customer.

No idea TBH. What I do know is one of my referrals (up to 2mb, BB+ £14.99) from August 2005 enquired yesterday about leaving and was told a price of £83.75 would have to be paid.

If I moved electricty company and was due the old company money then any claim of due monies would not affect the move to a new supplier. The old company would have to chase for it.

That sounds best for the consumer.

You are aware that even though plus.net complys with the migration code policy, they are not actually listed with OFCOM as a member of the scheme.

So technically, they could just tell everyone to shove their MACs up.....er.. somewhere and tell you that you won't be getting one :S
