From the 4/27/2012 Q&A:
http://www.swtor.com/blog/community-qa-april-27th-2012
Quote:
Arymono: When will character transfers be available for everybody?

Dallas Dickinson (Senior Producer, Live Services): We will be rolling out our Character Transfer Service in early summer. First well have some targeted free transfers from/to specific servers, but that will be followed with a broader system where you can either take advantage of free promotional transfers to specific servers or paid transfers to the server of your choice. We know everyone has more questions about character transfer, and well reveal more details closer to the launch date.
And again...
Quote:
DrakeAssaShin: What is being done to address low population servers?

Dallas: The Character Transfer Service, as mentioned above, will be offering free transfers from/to specific servers. This should allow the most motivated players to get onto a higher population server.
Big news for the SWTOR community, especially those on low population (and super high population) servers. I am personally very pleased that BW is making this first wave of transfers free; good costumer service move on their part.

No exact ETA on the date of these transfers, but I imagine that "Early summer" means sometime in June.

hopefully this will make some people happy. though i think they should force a few servers to close moving all the players. atleast people can not say bioware isnt listening and reacting in a positive manner.

sure it may be the summer before they come in , but i could see that being a logistics nightmare to move all those players properly

im actually really pleased to see this information. a little bummed that the free transfers are only to specific servers though. I hope some good ones are on the list.

Free and paid for.

Does this mean free is from high to low pop servers, and paid for is going the other way? I hope not, and really can't understand why they don't just merge some servers. Surely character transfers will just exacerbate the problem on the low pop servers.

Meanwhile, Guild Wars 2 have transfers in... the beta.

I love SWTOR and i don't plan to leave it, but we need it sooner.
