      Talking Re: Activated now then please post info here

      Order Date -20th Feb
      Migration - From Fasthosts (ultra reliable, ultra expensive)
      Router Arrived - 26th Feb
      Connection Due - 1st March
      Actually Connected -1st March, was on Fasthosts over breakfast, Sky by the time I had got back from dropping the kids off at school (20 mins)
      Up sync speed - 8096
      Down sync speed
      - 768
      Distance from the exchange - 0.8 miles

      I am, so far, very pleased!

      I should also add that when I signed up, the chap on the phone (Jason) told me that my line would support speeds up to 7.1mb and I am actually getting about 6.9mb when plugged into the router so he was pretty accurate.

      Order Date 2nd February 2007
      Migration Migrated from Eclipse
      Router Arrived 24th February 2007
      Connection Due 19th February 2007 (received notification on 24th February 2007)
      Actually Connected 26th February 2007 as router wouldn't pick up the IP from Sky (Sky blamed BT which was ******)
      Up sync speed 448
      Down sync speed 7040
      Actually getting 376 up and 2083 down

      Yes those dates are correct - Sky activated my line 5 days before telling me the date and sending my router.

      It was the same for me, although it was 3 days in my case and not 5 before they sent me me router or actually told me the date.
