      To be activated on the 29th!!! :)

      I have ordered my products. Sky Broadband Unlimited + Freetime + Line Rental. Due to be activated on the 29th of March. Received my router already. Got one of the new Sagems (Wireless N compatible?) as the guy on the phone who was very helpful with processing my order at Sky Talk said they had been getting problems with routers across the country.

      Will post stats once DLM has finished as I believe you have to leave your router on for the full 10 days so they can stabilse your line. Purchased one of those Mobile Broadband deals for the meantime on the 3 network. Dongle pay-as-you-go. Getting 5.5mbps off this thing!! Surprisingly. Anyway, will let you all know asap.

      Think the current issue with the new router is that only the power light comes on.

      Only time will tell :P though I have just read something about that here in the "sky routers" section of the forums.

      EDIT: I have just looked on the brown internet box that Sky sent it in and on the box it says the router is "version 5" so hopefully the issues people are having with it previously have been ironed out.

      I had a call the other day, from someone with the new sagem router. It was only a few days old and it was a dodgy.

      Hopefully its a bad batch and you will get one from another batch.
