Does Anyone Know how long BT take to do the Whoosh test?

Hi All,
I have just decided to apply for Plusnets reasonably priced self-install and was wondering if anyone knows roughly how long Bt tend to take to carry out the 1st Stage line check to make sure the point-to-point distance is within the radsl limits??

I havn't been told..only how long it might take for line activation..which is all well and good if i pass??

Any help appreciated as i am panting at the prospect of having adsl at home (currently have at work but what fun can you have at work?)
regards

They're only £7 each, don't think it's going to break the bank.

Well in the end I went to a company called solwise and bought a few splitters and an rj11 to BT converter..that is all in place now...Modem ready..all the lights are GREEN! I think this indicates BT have done there part..but When i spoke with Tech support, they said cant do anything until BT have confirmed it all..argh..so close..especially as i have phoned and cancelled all my existing ISP and BT surftime..typical eh??haha well i hope bt do it quick now!!!! else i wont be getting my internet for days!

Just for your Info as well, managed to use the bt test account BT_TEST_USER@STARTUP_DOMAIN and got a connection with an IP address assigned to me..i know this isnt conclusive proof, I suppose but just goes to show the BT wheel turns very slowly!
