      look outside to see if you can see a BTO van beside your nearest Green Box in the street.
      I did pass a BTO engineer with his head down a hole a couple of street down cursing "They f***ing said there was already f***ing down here". Doubt it's anything to do with me. but I should have offered him a hand.

      Give it time though and I am sure everything will be connected just fine.

      Your order is progressing and we aim to have your Broadband up and running by the end of the day on: 29/03/2011"

      I can't find a way to track it on the BT site without an order number. At what point would you bite the bullet and call sky?
      *Fingers crossed* everything activates okay as ADSL24 screwed me about and cancelled my order on activation day.
      If you really wanted you could try calling sky

      If it is SVBN
      Tier 1 can run a line test and usually are able to tell if it is active.

      Normally if it is not active it will say no termination to CP equipment

      If it wasn't active, then the circuit ID wouldn't be present to run a CAT test. 530 Order Completed, in penfold, will show an activation or the commission date/time in lama.

      These are my router stats so far. Noise margin is incredibly high but will post stats if DLM improves anything.
