If you recall, when we moved in, my ADSL order was delayed, because there was a block on the line. That block was the previous ADSL.
When I was informed that the line was clear, I gave my provider the go ahead, and mine was set up.
It would appear that the order to remove the previous order was somehow delayed.. and on Tuesday, the people in the exchange switched off my ADSL!! The engineer called them from here, and they plugged it back in!
If my backside wasn’t so numb from sitting using dial up, it’d be funny!
