Hi thanks for your report!
I only have a MBP 2017 so unfortunately I cannot verify that.
But reports are rolling in over at WifiSpoof that it stopped working on brand new MacBooks. It's a commercial product so they'll try hard to find out what's going on.
You could try the free trial version of wifispoof.com to confirm that it's not working on your MacBook. It would be rather radical if Apple stopped this functionality just like that.
(Also, please try a few different MAC addresses, also with known Apple vendor prefixes. Because I know that a whole range of addresses won't be accepted whatever you do. But you probably already tried.)
Seems to be working for these guys?
Hi Madhava, thank you for that link! I'm sure, however, that they refer to "mojave dark mode theme improvements" introduced in their 3.4.3 version.

Let me also refer again to these guys who are actively trying to triage the issue, without luck though.
I'm sorry to hear that. Given that Apple cares a lot for iPhone MAC addresses to be random, I can only hope that this was a mistake on their side. But then again I understand they might want to be the good guys for airport internet providers.
I was afraid this were be a pure hardware limitation, until there was one guy who said it worked with factory-shipped High Sierra, but others said it didn't. So we simply don't know.
It would be great if you could boot your MacBook with another operating system, say, Ubuntu directly from a USB stick and try to change your MAC. If it works, we'd immediately know this is a software blockage, not a hardware issue.
Yes, that's what I've read. But just as with everything, some dongles work, some don't. That's up to the dongle vendor, I suppose. I have more luck with USB-A Ethernet dongles than USB-C on a 2017 MBP.
