      Time to see who can connect me quickest

      I've finally had enough waiting for sky broadband and ordered broadband from NTL on cable now.Sky order still active, whoever connects me 1st get's my business.
      I was supposed to be activated on the 12th Sept lost my previous ISP on the 15th Sept.Numerous phone calls all promising activation within 48hrs,then told cabling fault at Aylesbury exchange will be 7-10 days till your connected, that ended on the 6th Oct.Sky response was then to wait another 7 days.Sky also told me to get a MAC code now will take 15 days then 15 days to untag the line then i can get another isp.They don't know i have cable access at my address.
      NTL can connect me on the 18th Oct, so i wonder who will connect me 1st.

      Let the race begin.

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.

      Spoke to sky yesterday and they have still had no response from easynet about the hardware fault in the exchange,So they have no idea when anything will happen.

      NTL still on course for 18th Oct. now odds on to connect me 1st.

      Bit of good news though.I spoke to sky tv and now have 25% a month off my tv package for the year,so if i ever get connected to sky BB i will effectively be getting paid 1.88 a month to have it.

      NTL win,connected this morning as promised and up and running with no problems.
      Sky still have no idea when the exchange tie pins wil be sorted,So unfortunately sky is a no go now.
      Will still look up this forum from time to time as the mother in-law is on sky now.
