Adrian Holmes started this petition to Ofcom and

On March 1st this year the Post Office sent an email to 450,000 broadband customers that it would be transferring our accounts to Shell Energy on 16th of March. There was no previous indication that the Post Office was looking at ditching it's broadband and phone line service.
Like many others I think, I became a Post Office customer in order to support an organisation that I believed was essential to the local community.

I now find myself wondering how our accounts are being transferred to Shell Energy, a giant corporation with an appalling record on environmental and human rights in areas like the Niger Delta.
There has been no consultation with customers, who ought to be regarded as stakeholders in the Post Office broadband business.

I am calling on Ofcom the UK Government Office for Communications as regulator for broadband and phone services, to put a halt to this transfer and investigate the process by which the Post Office has gone about this deal. I consider it unethical that a company whose main business in exploiting fossil fuels is able to acquire 450,000 broadband and phone customers in this way.
I don't think that the broadband market is well served by handing so many customers to one supplier without any kind of assessment of the consequences on fair competition practice.
