      Previous Experience of BB Max ?

      Any1 who has had the experience of joining Sky MAX BroadBand Package? just wanted an estimated time to how long it took for the internet to be activated on your line? im looking to get the service ASAP! I just wanted to know an estimated time, for when you'll have an active internet connection?

      My situation at the moment is that i have Sky TV Package installation coming tomorow, I cant get BB Max as my phone line isnt active yet! but i do have a phone line, and a phone number to the house. But the phoneline is in major debt, thus disabling the phoneline.Im paying this debt off tomorow, and following that i wanted to order Sky BB Max. From here would any1 have an idea how long it would take for BB to be active on my line

      If any1 might have had this experience, or might know a bit of information i could use.
      Everything is useful, thanks alot !

      If your line is just blocked for billing you will have around a 10 day wait as the line is on the database already, just needs BT to go in and do their bit for the adsl hook up. If you talk to sky sales they will give you a rough activation date, no one can get it done much faster than 10 days unfortunately.

      Mine took a while about a month

      Something to do with the exchange and keep blowing something
      lost me because every-time they fixed it something else went wrong

      But saying that i must praise SKY i have had the max BB for over a year now and everything has been fine been off a couple of time but only for a few Mins

      So just letting you know that things can go wrong But like said on here normally get it on with in 10 days which is average i think.
