      Word of advice if you're doing a cease/provide from LLU

      Just a quickie to let you know how mine worked out so far. I was LLU with Plusnet & SkyBB told me I would have to wait 5 days for the BT system to catch up once my Plusnet was ceased before I would be able to order with Sky.

      That wasn't the case for me at all. My Plusnet was working until the early hours of this morning, then died. I had a look at the availability checkers on both Bulldog & UKOnline this morning and both said my line was free and I could sign up for ADSL with them.

      So I called Sky and was able to place my order today, despite my LLU being cancelled the same day.

      Short version : If you cease your LLU, check your availability on an online checker. Don't wait for 5 days just because Sky say you should....

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.

      My LLU marker was cleared the same day it was cancelled too. Was glad I wouldn't have to spend an extra week on dialup.

      So maybe they can clear them faster than they claim to be able to do with ISP Stream ?
