New information in BT availability check

I'm moving on 20th February and today had a look at what http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/adslchecker.welcome says for my line.
It includes this useful information in the results:

There is currently a Broadband cease pending or in progress against this line. This cease is due to complete by 20th February 2013. This will not stop you ordering Broadband from a new supplier, but it will delay the provision of the new Broadband service.

Yes, it does give some pretty informative results now, I'm assuming that result relates to the new line?

That is the result for my existing line. I've tried to get something for where I'm moving to but the check by address gives nothing extra and the new telephone number won't be recognised until the BT databases are updated after it goes live.

Re: New information in BT availability check

For interest, if you check your current property using its address rather than your phone number does it give the additional information?

No, nothing extra on the current property when checked by address.

Re: New information in BT availability check

Definitely is just phone-number based information then. Sad
