I’m on virgin with a BT line and want to change to BT broadband
So do I have to get a Mac code to transfer or just give months notice to virgin
Will it be easy then to get on bb with BT as its their line im already on

And is there a break in betwen

Get a MAC code , otherwise you will have to be disconnected fully , then wait for ages to be reconnected , with a MAC code they just transfer the connection at the exchange without full disconnection .

Do i give notice at the same time or by asking for the mac they assume you are leaving anyway

Do NOT cancel. If you cancel the exchange connection will be terminated and you will have to wait for up to three weeks for a new one.

Ask for the MAC If you don't use the MAC, if you change your mind about moving, nothing will change.
If you sign up to another ISP, once the transfer is is confirmed, the period of notice to Virgin is deemed to have been given from the day you asked for the MAC.

You may lose the connection for an hour when the actual transfer takes place.
