Be Broadband has offered some practical tips for consumers looking to switch internet service provider (ISP).

The broadband provider said this process is relatively straightforward, and can result in significant internet bill reductions.

First of all, consumers need to contact their existing broadband provider and obtain their Migration Authorisation Code (MAC), Be explained.

They then need to provide this MAC key to a new supplier along with completed order forms, the ISP added.

From start to finish, this process usually takes between four and five working days.

"Check your current contract, as some providers charge their customers for moving to another provider before a specified date," Be Broadband urged.

The firm explained that a household may lose its broadband connection temporarily, although downtime should not be prolonged during the switchover.

Be Broadband recently urged consumers with UK Online – which is closing down in January 2011 – to consider taking out one of its broadband deals.
