If you go through a cashback site you can get 3 months free (ends in 5 days) and £38 back if it's any help

Why a MAC?
Im leaving Sky FU for Plusnet UF and both parties said it is not needed (changeover on the 13/03/13). I hope they're not wrong.

If you are Fully LLU'd then no,no Mac Code will be given because it falls outside the Mac code system scope, only BTW and SMPF LLU (ADSL ONLY)connections,safeguarded by the Mac code

So if you are FU then the gaining provider will have to have the line transfared back to the BTW system, then they will be able to place your FTTC order,Unlikely that both with active on the same day, as normally the BTwholesale data base has to update before any isp can place an order for xDSL products , So unless Plusnet have some way around this your line and telephony service will switch to plusnet on that day, but be prepared for a wait maybe only a few days before the order can be placed, then the normal process of being given a FTTC install date

If you are fully LLU'd with sky then the Mac code system is not applicable, plusnet would need to do a return to donor order basically, to get your line re connected or whatever needs doing before broadband services can be ordered on this line, and as result of the line being disconnected from sky's llu any active broadband will not be present on the line after plusnet have had it transfered to them

But if you are SMPF Broadband only is on sky's LLU then yes the mac code process would apply and sky are obligated to supply you one upon your request

Possibly the easiest way of you finding out if your line is full or partial llu is to input your telephone number into the bt wholesale adsl checker, if Full llu's it will not give any speed estimates for your line,
failing that run a tracert and if the 1st hop after the router is an Easynet.net switch, then you most probably will be only SMPF partial LLU so would there fore require a Mac code
