      Connection before Activation Date

      Hi

      I ordered Sky broadband last week and the router arrived this morning. They have given me an activation date on 7th July.

      I've set the router up and my netbook has detected the connection. Typed in the network code and got connected.

      So has it been activated before scheduled? I haven't used the Sky CD as my netbook doesn't have a CD drive.

      Thanks
