      Can I get my stats before going live?

      Hi,

      If I plug my Sky Hub in before my activate date, am I able to get my line attenuation and noise margin.
      Or does it need to get the ADSL signal?

      Thanks
      Regards,
      CBG (Garry)

      You can certainly plug it in before the 'live' date, but you can only get the stats once the BTO Engineer has hooked you up at the exchange. Sometimes this is done a couple of days early.

      Officially you aren't meant to do ths or use it before the 'live date' but Sky doesn't tend to complain about it.

      If ADSL has been activated on your line, the router will sync with the exchange thus giving you your stats. Until ADSL is activated you will get nothing.
