      Miss A pays BT for line rental on her line, and would prefer to avoid the hassle of changing the line. She also bought her own Sky TV contract after he moved out, so there IS sky tv at the address. She doesnt receive his bills for Sky TV, and this is how she knows he has changed the address on his Sky TV to his new address.

      I can possibly borrow a router rather than buy one, and after that all I'll need to do is find one on ebay that isnt there because of a billing dispute(?), but I've also considered that just a text to him of "Wow! I didnt know that any sky router will work on a sky broadband line.. Who'd have thought that getting an old sky router off ebay for a tenner would see you paying for my internet? I hope you have the unlimited package, otherwise the excess-usage charges this month are going to be pretty hefty for you" would make him ring up for a cancellation faster than one can say "touchee"

      That would do the trick. He'd soon cancel the BB account on the line.

      I would point out to him as well that HE is responsible for anything and everything downloaded on HIS ADSL contract with Sky

      Maybe a good case for an open wireless network with an SSID of 'UsemeImFree'

      ROFL nicely done

      I would also text saying you would hate to see him end up in trouble for the illegal downloading of movies via P2P, all traceable via his internet connection.
