      I've also ordered Sky BB, signed up on Saturday, router should be here by Friday, and the service switched over by the Friday after that. Got the Max package. I'm on a long line (4-5km), currently syncing at ~4400/448 on maxdsl, hoping for the same on the downstream with a higher upstream.

      Found the sky order process very efficent indeed. Gave them the code and my MAC code, chose package and that was it done. Hopefully aftersales will be as good as that.
