      Nope, but I wouldn't expect L1 to know. I tried the checker with some local friends' numbers/postcodes (one of whom already has FTTC with PlusNet) and neither offered it.

      I presume you mean 1.5 "Mb". MB does not mean Mb. If you had a 1.5MB connection you would have a connection of over 8Mb!

      If you could get 19.5 "MB" you could download at up to 156Mb/s! That would be one very fast connection.

      Re: Boom! Here we go - ordering now live

      The Sky line checker seems very sketchy. I have Sky BB but it wouldn't recognise my number and only worked on my address the second time round. But it says I can get 31mb which I'd be happy with, I'm synced at around 6mb now so a hefty increase

      Will be ordering tonight hopefully

      Cool beans! Did you have to go the phone route in the end?

      No.. As usual, I think I've been mugged off by Sky.. No email confirmation yet, still no order on my Sky page and now it's saying "Not available" and takes me to the old registration page. Oh well, it was a nice dream for a couple of hours.
