BT wouldn't give me a MAC code at this stage into my contract surly?
MACs don't exist any more. Even when they did there were no circumstances in which they could refuse to issue one within five working days of the request.
To migrate now you just place your order with your chosen new supplier. As with gas and electricity. Link
I am 10 months in, by the time I move I will be 11 just the right time to give my notice. Biut what is going to happen is they will renew my contract without any offers which I simply can not afford. I could phone them now and try and give them notice to leave, they might do what most providers do and try every trick under the sun to get me to stay.
Only you know the actual dates. The migration process now seems to take precisely 14 calendar days from order to transfer. There is a mandatory ten-working day period set by Ofcom during which you can change your mind and cancel the migration without penalty by contacting the gaining ISP again. Ofcom being as they are don't know that anywhere works outside Mon-Fri
, hence the 14 calendar days or maybe more at Bank Holidays.
You have no longer have any need whatsoever to contact your existing ISP to migrate to another
, and they are forbidden to contact you to try to persuade you to stay. If you do contact them, then you may very well say something that gives them a reason to offer you something - people normally do this looking for a good retention deal.
Ofcom migration rules
effective 20 June 2015.
The new ISP might not be too happy with a house move so soon after joining, but unless it is covered in their T & Cs I doubt if they can do anything about it. Perhaps ask them first?
The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.
