Can I use my account in a different location without BB?

Just wondering as I used to do it with AOL, sign in on a different pc (but that was dial-up on both machines). Have BB here now, but am going away and wondering if i can use my plusnet account on another pc,, they dont have BB..only dial-up modem. :?:

You can use your PN account for a dialup connection BUT it will assign you the same IP address as your BB connection so you need to disconnect BB before you go otherwise the PN routers get confused where to route returned data to. So only one of dialp or BB must be connected at any one time.

The number to dial is under connection settings -> connection details and there is a downloadable setup file to configure a dialup modem connection on Windows.

You will be charged 1p/min for the call, the same as if you had a free PAYG dialup account.

You can also login to the portal from any ISP connection, it does not have to be PN, and you can also use webmail from any ISP as well.
