SharePoll: It’s suspected that Ofcom wants to change the current broadband migration process so that the gaining provider leads the process with third party verification. What do you think about this?

The UK communication regulator, Ofcom, has recently launched a second consultation outlining potential changes to the current broadband Migration Authorisation Code (MAC) process. To replace the current methods, the regulator has presented three options including a Gaining Provider Led (GPL) solution, which includes a third party verification process; a Losing Provider Led solution, which is similar to the current MAC process but addresses problems with the back end systems; and a third option which basically just enhances the Gaining Provider and Losing Provider Led processes.

However, it seems that the regulator is favouring the Gaining Provider Led option with the use of using a Third Party Verification system, despite it being the more costly option. Following on from this, we would like to know what your thoughts are on their favoured choice and we have added a new poll to gather your responses. Remember you can also leave us a comment below.

  1. I think too many people may have forgotten the past issues of line slamming and this problems getting the issues resolved, with Ofcom not really having must understanding about the industry it is supposed to be regulating this could just be another disaster.
    f it had a similar route as a current migration of a phone line process then this may work, with the current set-up for phone lines, the gaining provider issues the request but before it goes through the loosing provider has the chance to stop the move, and this would be helpful where a loosing provider is hard to reach or goes out of business, as long as there is some type of process to stop loosing providers just denying the request for no good reason.
