      Connection times?

      Basically i get this when checking online:
      "Sky Broadband Unlimited
      Your order is progressing and we aim to have your Broadband up and running by the end of the day on: 16/08/2010 "

      To all those who have gone through this, does that mean by 5PM or Midnight? Getting fedup of waiting for the internet at home when we have had everything else connected for 3 weeks now.

      Annoying as it's now the end of the business day and it still hasn't been turned on - just checked online - not at home so do you reckon it is on and the online mysky just takes longer to update?

      It may be, although they give themselves a buffer of 3 days. There is a member on here who was not due to be switched on until today, but was actually switched on over a week ago. The actual time depends on when the BTO engineers visit the exchange. Sky are at BTO's mercy with that, they can only put in the order and hope that they comply..

      Well i just checked online again and it says it has all gone through and lists the speed i should get and all that.

      Girlfriend messaged me tested all phone sockets in the house and not one of them shows as internet connected, reckon it takes a couple hours to "warm up" ?
