Looking to change your ADSL ISP?

The ability of users to be able to switch between ISPs is currently not facilitated in the way BT runs ADSL. However, this may all be about to change. BT have proposed a method which would allow
the user to switch between the ISP without the need for an engineer to visit the users home to replace the equipment with identical equipment (what would be required at present). Hence, the need
for a second install fee would not be necessary, but an admin fee would be charged for the process.
BT do however fail to mention whether it will be possible to change ISP within the minimum 12 month term of an ADSL contract. There are currently no time scales for this, but I would guesstimate at
it not being available before the end of August, and possibly later still. Lets hope I'm proved wrong.
