      Moving from another ISP... How will I know when Sky is activated?

      As title really. I am keen to get on and leave my "old" ISP so how do I know that Sky has been activated. Is it as simple as waiting for the "old" ISP to die? Presumably I won't be able to connect anymore?

      When you order Sky BB, you will get a letter with the expected activation date.
      If you have chosen to install it yourself, leave the box plugged in and when activated, the internet light ( the little i) will go solid green

      Hope this helps

      Basically yes, your old connection will stop so then plug in the sky router and it should be all systems go.
