      Help please..MAC code

      Hi,
      Here is the story. Have got sky bb but it is not in my name and the person who's name it is in is moving out, so I need a new isp. Now the ex flatmate has said that sky said they don't provide a MAC code.

      This is what was said....I asked for that but she said there won’t be one as it will be cancelled automatically in my name as I am moving, so you will just need to find another provider and if they say there is a tag on the line for a previous provider eg sky, then you have to say that was the previous occupier.

      Now is that right?

      Yup. Because the owner of the account is moving you will have to find your own ISP. You can't have a MAC because you are not the current owner.

      Sadly this means you are going to have to wait until Sky BB is switched off before you can proceed.

      aol do a 1 month trial on dial up [then usually offer another month free] when your flat mate moves out is her/his year contract finished if so get her to cancel and re apply yourself [but you would need to take a sky package or keep the sky package your on ]]

      Yup, you can use Virgin Pay as you Go dial up. Probably others too.

      I don't know if there is a BT number you could call to speed up clearing the line, but either way you are going to be off broadband for a bit.

      Virgin Dial-up - the link is hard to find on their site!
