      technically yes however if your friend is using the net at the same time. Sky would be aware of the same login being used twice

      It is not possible for two people to log on at the same time with the same details.

      Stand outside the exchange and wait for the BT Engineer to turn up. When he does, slip him 20 and tell him to come back on Friday. Just an idea.

      By the way, I'm in the same position as you, expecting to be cut off because my router's not going to turn up in time for my activation. I've got to the point where I just laugh about it. What else can you do with these jokers?

      Where Sky could be really smart, is to issue a Username and Password that lasted for say 7 days, so that you could use that in your router until their router turns up.
