Should I request a PAC, STAC or disconnection?

Transferring numbers to a new network provider (PAC)

If you wish to keep your existing number by transferring it to a new network, you can request a Porting Authorisation Code (PAC).

PAC codes must be used within 30 days, at which point they are redundant, and a new PAC must be generated by following the same procedure.

Disconnection

If you choose to cancel your plan.com contract by removing a service (or multiple services) from our network, you must provide 30 days’ notice. This applies even if you are outside of your minimum termination period (as outlined in your plan.com customer contract).

The easiest way to request a disconnection is via go.plan, which enables you to set a disconnection date and will immediately inform you about any related termination fees.

STAC

If you choose to cancel your plan.com contract by removing a service from our network and connect a new service on a different service with a new number, you can request a Service Termination Authorisation Code (STAC).

A STAC affords you exactly the same rights as a PAC except it will not transfer your number.

However, please be aware that your service(s) will not be disconnected from the plan.com network until the code has been received and activated by the new service provider. Therefore, you will continue to pay for the plan.com service up until that transfer has actually occurred.

Please note that to keep a number, it must be transferred – you cannot keep a number without it being transferred and all numbers will be put back into general circulation and may be used by a different customer at a later date.


Want to find out when your contract ends and any costs that may be payable?

You can request information about any charges (including termination fees) associated with transfer or disconnection requests without initiating a transfer or disconnection by visiting go.plan.com which will give you an immediate summary. Otherwise, you can text INFO to 85075 or call 03300 88 18 18.


Billing: what you need to know if you do decide to leave

You’ll be billed as normal until the date we disconnect or transfer your number.

Your final bill will be invoiced once your service has disconnected and we’ve calculated and reflected on your invoice any Termination Fees, accrued but unpaid monthly fixed charges, any additional accrued but unpaid call, text and data usage.


How long does it take to receive my PAC, STAC or Switching Information?

Business contracts work slightly different to a standard consumer contract as tariffs tend to be more complex which is why Ofcom’s lead times differ when it comes to issuing codes to business customers.

Here’s a breakdown of the methods you can request a PAC, the lead times for issuing you your PAC or STAC and how you will receive it.

Single service contract cancellations Multiple service contract cancellations (2-24 services) Multiple service contract cancellations (25+ services)
Free text1 Immediately if possible but otherwise within two hours (by phone or text)1
Email Two working days Two working days Ten working days
Phone Immediately if possible but otherwise within two hours (by phone or text) Immediately if possible but otherwise within two hours (by phone or text) Ten working days (by email)

1 You can only make requests by text if your contract is in respect of a single service. The text must be sent from the service relating to the request for it to be valid.


Who can request a PAC code or a disconnection?

To transfer (PAC) or disconnect a service, you must be the person who signed the contract or an authorised signatory on the account.

If you have been supplied a plan.com service by your business but did not sign the contract, you will not be able to transfer or disconnect the service. Similarly, if you work for the company but you are not the signatory or an authorised signatory, you will not be able to make a transfer or disconnection request so please contact your employer.


Terms and conditions

Validity of PAC/STAC

Both PAC and STAC codes must be activated within 30 days of issue, after which point they are redundant and a new PAC or STAC must be generated by following the same procedure.

Date of Disconnection

If you choose to cancel a plan.com service using either a PAC or STAC, that service will cease to on the date that the PAC or STAC is activated. Notwithstanding any terms in your contract, there will be no 30-day notice period for termination.

Costs of Termination

If you choose to cancel a plan.com service, you will be required to pay the aggregate of:

  • any Charges that have been accrued on the service up to and including the date of disconnection (including any fixed monthly service charges and any variable charges including roaming charges and any additional call, text or data (including roaming) charges and
  • any Termination Fee that may payable under any contract you have with plan.com or any of its affiliates, which shall be calculated from and including (i) the date of disconnection to (ii) the date that represents the end of any minimum Service Term under your plan.com contract; and
  • any Termination Fee that may be payable under any finance contract that you may have entered into with plan.com, an affiliate of plan.com or a finance company in respect of the financing of any equipment.

At the time of issuing your PAC or STAC (as applicable) we will notify you of any costs, fees or charges that you will be liable to pay if you do disconnect together with an explanation of any accrued costs, fees or charges that may not be able to be calculated until after the date we issued the PAC or STAC. In the case of single service contract cancellations, we will notify you via whichever method you chose to contact us. In the case of a multiple service contract we will notify you by email.

If you have multiple services but only wish to transfer or disconnect some of the services, you will still be charged termination fees but only for the services that are within their minimum contract term. In these cases, the termination fee will be proportional to the number of services being terminated.

"Termination Fee (or Early Termination Charges)" - if you are within your minimum contract term , you will be charged a termination fee equivalent to the monthly fixed charge multiplied by the remaining time until expiry of that minimum contract term. For example if your contract contains a 24-month Service Term and you have four months and 15 days remaining, your termination fee will be calculated as Fixed Monthly tariff x Four months and 15 days)
