      New Connection from cable.
      Router Arrived - 21st Dec 2006
      Connection Due - 14th Nov 2006
      Actually Connected - It works but apparently I've not been 'activated' yet as Sky are saying I don't have broadband...when I clearly do.
      Up sync speed - 768 kbps
      Down sync speed - 1088 kbps (That isn't a typo and I'm not missing any numbers. I'm on Max too!)
      Distance from the exchange - 2.8km apparently

      Order Date.............sometime mid november
      New Connection
      or
      Migration................migration
      Router Arrived...........approx 14th december
      Connection Due...........no idea? ( have never been informed! )
      Actually Connected.......( found it was connected on the 17th Dec when our old isp stopped working for some reason? )
      Up sync speed............416 ( although we're on the MAX....supposedly )
      Down sync speed..........varies between approx 3800 to about 4300 if i reboot the router
      Distance from the exchange..You are around 2.52 kilometres from your exchange (as the crow flies).

      We'll be contacting the BB team after the new year regarding no letter yet informing as to when we're supposed to 'go live' and also our upload speed of 416 and the fact we were told we wouldnt lose our old isp BEFORE we went 'live'. I just hope that like others here they don't accidentally cut us off!
