      Switching today - fingers crossed

      Just need to tell someone. Should be switching from BT to Sky Max today. It's 12.19pm and BT broadband is still alive and kicking. Here's hoping they manage to transfer today and it all works out fine. Will write some updates throughout the day.

      Woops - was getting anxious over nothing. Just realised today's the 19th, not the 20th , which is when I should be connected. Will update tomorrow.

      I should have switched over yesterday, but nothing as of yet. Mind you, my BT broadband has been up and down all morning so fingers crossed it could be today.

      Good luck!

      I was activated today. My due date lol.

      Phone went dead at about 10.30 this morning after about 10 minutes phone was ok. Plugged in Sky router and connected at 8239 kps down and 766 kps up.

      I'm 1.5 km as crow flies from exchange, Noise margin 51dB, SNR 7dB

      For those of you waiting on activation you should check your order with the BT tracker to avoid disappointment. I was due to be activated on the 8th and it happened one week late.
