I know a few ISP's do this, but others don't, I was wondering that now Plusnet have submitted my order to BT (At last!) do they come back to me with a firm activation date, or is it a case of waiting and seeing via the tracker?
You should get a email from Plusnet to say that you are activated.
However this is the daft bit. When your ADSL is switched on your 0808 connection is switched off :? so you will have difficulty connecting to read the mail.
If you don't know it already then go to the Customer Support section of this portal and make a note of the phone number to use in the 0845 range, as you will need to switch to this as your dial up once activated.
