How do you tell if broadband has arrived?

Hi all,

How can you tell whether broadband has been turned on for your telephone line?

How do you tell if broadband has arrived?

There are two ways.

1: Wait for your ISP to inform you

2: Plug your ADSL connection equipment in (if you have any), and see if it sync's with the exchange.

Number 2 is not a sure sign that your will remain ADSL enabled, and only waiting until the ISP contacts you will gurentee this.

How do you tell if broadband has arrived?

One way, if you've already got your modem or router is to plug it in to your phone line. Routers (at least) have a light labelled "ADSL" or "SYNC" (or similar) which shows a working connection.

Not foolproof but a good start. +Net only send out the equipment (if you've ordered it from them) after BT say the line is active.

At least, that's my understanding. Hope this helps.
