      Welcome to the site Lawman

      Sorry to hear that talk about bad timing

      I guess its now going to cost you an extra months money to leave IDNET but I guess the savings you make with SkyBB will more make up for that.

      Good luck with your move to sky and keep us posted.

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

      I'm already a expert, (ntl / pipex / BT / Aol / F2S / and now IDnet...)
      I want my professor-ship

      I rang sky and have done a prelim. booking, I only have to supply my Mac code when it arrives.
      Sky quoted me, 14.5 MB line Speed,
      I think with a bit of arm twisting, I can accept that,...(for Now)

      Yep they did me, I originally rang up with some Questions,
      Before I commit myself, they asked me for my sky code,
      I told them I was waiting for my ISP Mac Code, so I will hold off for now.
      and the Lady said no problem we can still do a prelim order,
      and when you get your mac, just ring it in, and the order will be completed.

      Now thats interesting as I called before I placed my order to ensure I would get LLU and not DSLMax and was told I would and as soon as I have my MAC to call them back and they would place the order, so if what you are saying is true maybe they have had so many people phoning in they decided to change they way the do it.

      There really quick at learning thats fro sure

      Surely your not suggesting, I'm telling Porky's we duel at dawn!!.. stanmore is only a couple of miles away
      Rest assured what I said was True... I've got my email add.
      and when I get my Mac...I just ring them and choose option 3 on the menu..
