im still convinced that the Small claims court is our very good friend in all this T&C contract nonsense, it just takes a little coordinated thinking to get it right.
and if your (anyones)going to the trouble of sending your Letter Before Action (LBA) claiming your MAC code and the costs of ending the contract and costs (your generic per hour fee,travel costs, letters time,materials,research,etc [see: bank charges threads for all of these allowences etc]), then you might as well also add in the full monty.
any and all unlawful T&C clauses in there to be struck off,all costs of relocating to another ISP of your choice.
and getting a basic BT *DSL capable line installed and activated ,or even any wireless ISP inclusive connection fees, if that is your choice, if VM do activate this Phorm,etc.
everyone when talking about needing the T&C changing, forgets about the official BT diagrams of this upcoming trial, it clearly shows they are giving YOU no other option other than to be directly connected to the Deep Packet Interception kit so they can unlawfully put cookies on YOUR PC and check For them to see if they are legally allowed to Intercept you....
that is still clearly against the law, they can talk all they like about your T&C wont chance IF..... but if you decline or remove your authorisation to be intercepted at any time, then they are breaking the law, and the other documents and industry agreements etc, and NOT giving you the choice to never be intercepted by the DPI kit, a clear breach of any "in good faith" legal terms, or fair term for both partys in this CONSUMER Contract...
BTW, it appears you can use the moneyclaim online site for your Small claims, or just pop down your local court and get the N1 forms and leaflets explaining the procedure, you can also asked the court clerks to point you in the right direction as regards what other Leaflets you might want to use, claiming back fees or filling in forms for weaving costs for low income claiments etc apparently, again see the bank charges threads in the CAG.

I wondered if the company they sought advice from was also the same company advising BT in their webwise trials.
sp&*kCall must of forgot to pay those bluechip investors to sign up to their Board Of Directors, unlike K*nt.... he knows lots of them, i wonder if their not so happy with him right now , they too must have lost a few quid off their shares portfolio options
