Well I got my MAC key on Saturday via the Plusnet portal....took less than a day to arrive!! So ordered Sky on Saturday and got the ball rolling....will let you know how it goes.
One more question....I currently get my phone line through Plusnet (£11 a month)...will I be able to keep that with them or will I need to swap it to BT....or will I HAVE to get Skytalk?

Okay, pretty convinced that I am going to switch but reading other threads on here (about incorrectly placed ceases and "tie pairs") has got me nervous.
If you are migrating from a maxDSL service to an LLU one, what sort of 'drastic' problems might you encounter ? By drastic I mean problems that leave you with no BB connection at all for weeks on end rather than not getting the full 16MB for example. ie if moving from a maxDSL to LLU, should ceases even come into the equation ?

Don't think so - I'm only on dial-up at the mo, while waiting for Sky to pull their finger out, and I used the username and password from my letter without any problem.

Just to bounce a question I asked above...
I currently get my phone line through Plusnet (£11 a month)...will I be able to keep that with them or will I need to swap it to BT or will I HAVE to get Skytalk?

You DONT HAVE to get SkyTalk!
Sky Broadband only Requires a BT line, Not a BT Telephony Service (Bt Together Option 1) Though I maybe mistaken!

Well - just ordered Sky BB over the phone
The guy definitely said I could get the Max package, so went with that.
Hardware/paperwork should be with me in 5-10 days time. Activation date is 15 days time
The only thing he told me over the phone about my account was what my email address was going to be, which is OK.
I assume stuff like payment details (DD information,etc) will come in the paperwork ?
Fingers crossed that everything goes to plan.
