      Getting through to Zoe should mean that you're on SVBN.

      Re: Ok...new post: Lists of non sky llu exchanges & sky llu exchanges

      I don't think it's looking too good for me then!

      Although I pay Sky for Line Rental and Calls, I seem to get the BT Line Test facility when I dial 17070 and at the moment 150 is engaged (and it sounds like BT Lady who is telling me the number I have dialled is busy and to press 5 to use ringback)!

      I'm certain that I used to get "Welcome to Sky" when I dialled 150 in the past.

      Tracert to bbc.co.uk gives:

      2 cr0.wmdro.uk.easynet.net (87.xxx.xxx.xxx) 28.532 ms 28.864 ms 40.026 ms
      3 ip-87-87-137-129.easynet.co.uk (87.87.137.129) 23.219 ms 23.450 ms 23.480 ms
      4 te0-0-0-0.er11.thlon.ov.easynet.net (89.200.135.131) 35.881 ms 34.384 ms 32.047 ms
      5 212.58.238.189 (212.58.238.189) 28.562 ms 28.640 ms 28.263 ms
      6 * * *
      7 ae1.er01.rbsov.bbc.co.uk (132.185.254.46) 28.624 ms 28.070 ms 28.326 ms
      8 132.185.255.134 (132.185.255.134) 29.417 ms 29.674 ms 31.146 ms
      9 212.58.241.131 (212.58.241.131) 28.240 ms 29.445 ms 28.145 ms

      I joined all services before SVBN was invented.

      So what am I connected to at the exchange - a new ISAM (which seems to be a requirement for SBUF) or an old DSLAM/stinger (which will deny me access to SBUF)?
      Presumably the answer will determine whether or not I will be able to order SBUF tomorrow online?

      This shows you're on non-SVBN. From experience as well, most non-SVBN DSLAMs are labelled 'cr0, cr1 etc.' as opposed to ISAMs being labelled 'bm0, bm1, dr0 etc.'

      So it's likely to be no-go for me tomorrow then?

      Gave Sky a ring this morning to order Fibre and the young lady took all my details and said "I will check the way we have been trained to see what was available" then informed me that nothing was showing up on her system and to try again in a couple of weeks
      I'll try again tomorrow see what the score is then.

      Pete.

      Excellent info User05, thanks alot for clearing that up for us.

      so if ive got this right, ofcause there may be easynet entries in the tracert as thats Sky's back haul but its hop 2 that counts,
      if 2 is (#).(sauid).uk.easynet.net then you are on an old DSLAM and therefore not SVBN
      if 2 is (*).bb.sky.com or (*).(*).isp.sky.com then you may still not be on SVBN but should be on a new ISAM and ringing 17070 should confirm SVBN if get zoe or non SVBN if get bt test thingy.

      With regards to the ISAM connections i wonder if it could be the bb.sky.com ones that are SVBN and isp.sky.com that are still using wlr3 perhaps, and even if your still currently wlr3, would the fact that you are on an ISAM mean youd still be good for SBUF and migrated to SVBN as part of getting SBUF.

      anyway my hop 2 is a *.bb.sky.com connection and on 17070 i get the lovely Zoe so hopefully that means when BTO finally get my exchange/cab done i should be good to go for SBUF

      thanks again User05, ur a star

      I'm on SBUF, my hop 2 is also .bb.sky.com and I get to listen to the lovely Zoe too.

      So you should be golden.
