    Then they are in breach of an ofcom ruling.

    New Rules by Ofcom on switching With the introduction of new rules, OFCOM … New Rules by Ofcom on switching With the introduction of new rules, OFCOM has curtailed the rogue practices by some ISPs who effectively prevented customers from migrating to new ISPs by not issuing MAC code. The following are the salient points of the new rules: [LIST][*]The existing broadband provider must supply a MAC on request by the customer within five working days, along with its expiry date, and must not charge for this service[*]The new provider must accept a valid MAC.[*][COLOR=Blue]The existing provider cannot withhold a MAC for any reason like debt collection, or for contractual reasons[/COLOR][*][COLOR=RoyalBlue]If the customer requests for a MAC inside the minimum contract period the customer will still be liable for any contractual obligations (including paying subscription charges for the minimum contract period, etc)[/COLOR][*]The provider must explain the reasons to the customer if a MAC cannot be issued.[*]Providers should offer the customer reasonable assistance in migrating from or to another provider[*]The provider must not disconnect a customer’s service if a MAC is requested[*]The provider must provide two different ways to obtain a MAC (e.g. by phone, post, website, etc)[*]A provider must re-issue a MAC on subsequent requests if the previous MAC has expired[*]The new provider can still refuse to supply a service for business reasons including credit worthiness[*]It is only compulsory for an ISP to provide a MAC for home consumers and small businesses (with fewer than ten employees).[/LIST]

    your more than welcome! I would wanna change to o2, but tit's the hassle of doing it

    I've been with AOL about 9 years, At first they was fine, as they were one of the only providers offering unlimited internet etc
    But in the past year they have let me down a lot. and for around the past 7 months, they have blocked all my Battlefield games too the *******s. The one game i played the most
    It's AOL's fault and they blame EA.
    Im hoping to go to O2 as soon as possible
