      The 3 day period you are referring to is different from the 10 day training period. You may have seen the BT Myths and Legends which available from different sources on the web. I base my advice on that given to me, when I moved to ADSLMax while with Plusnet. I believe once a line has been 'trained' moving to another provider does not alter it, although I am not 100% sure. There are conflicting opinions on whether to reboot, disconnect or power off the router during the training period, I used the power off method and it worked for me. Some say that this signals a fault to the exchange, but others say the equipment knows the difference between a user switch off and a fault. Given the sophistication of the equipment, I think the latter is more likely.

      Re: Can you tell if you're capped?

      I believe that switching the router on and off a couple of times does no harm at all. I have, however, heard that continuously rebooting many times within, say, an hour, can cause the BRAS to reprofile (the number of times and within what period are unknown to me).

      If anyone can comment further I would be happy to hear it.

      If switching on and off is part and parcel of modem useage, why the Heck didn't they add an on/off switch?
