[link to this post]
 
shocking levels of service from Demon....

first off make the cancelations team none customer facing and then do everything to avoid giving you a MAC code.

MAC address? Rather a different thing from a Migration Authorisation Code (MAC). If you requested a MAC address, I'm not surprised you got nowhere.

Incidentally, a MAC code would be a Migration Authorisation Code code.

Aren't Demon C & W, as was Bulldog?

Now part of Vodafone.

Vodafone bought C&W who bought Thus who bought Demon from its founders, I think.

MAC address = Media Access Control Address = a globally unique physical identifier of networked devices.

It is never issued by ISPs and can't be, but usually by the manufacturers of the devices.

Well, I've read of users changing the MAC addy of their router to fake their connection in some way and many routers have a GUI for changing the MAC addy.

I always thought the MAC address was burnt into the device.
