How can I force a MAC code?


You can't force a MAC code from any ISP - however, if you ask I am sure you
will get one?

How can I force THEM to refund what they owe?


Have you tried posting on the Bulldog forum on ADSLguide? Seems like some
staff members are now posting there and may be able to help you.. - of
course you could tell your credit card company not to allow them to debit
money from your credit card... and inform Bulldog you withdraw your
authorisation for them to do so.

Sunil

I was more hoping for details of authorities that regulate
ISPs/communication companies that had teeth!


The official regulator is Ofcom (www.ofcom.org.uk) and it's always
worth firing off a complaint to them about dodgy services.

Be aware however that Ofcom give the impression of being very much on
the side of big business and have publicly stated they want to have a
light regulatory touch. Don't expect much more than a written
statement as a response.

I thought people with Bulldogbroadband issues may like to know that th
CEO there is Mr Emanuele Angelidis. His email address i
and phone number 0207 1641000
If he can't get it sorted then maybe you're with the wrong provider

No prob :-) It is the media (especially in London) that I
blame for confusion in all this, as they *could* have got it
right. Then again, when press releases from telecom firms in
London also show the wrong format, years after the change, why
should I expect the media to get it right ? Peter M, in Wales!
