Signed up 5 weeks ago, still not connected. Normal?

I signed up and was charged 5 weeks ago and although I finally received the router over a week ago I haven't had any email or communication from Plusnet since the 28th Feb. Was told the delay was because we had two phone lines (true, 15 years ago) and they didnt know which one to use but didnt bother to tell me this or ask me!


Am getting a bit fed up to be honest as thought this company would be better than the abysmal service we've had from TalkTalk, who have failed to provide any internet at all since 31st December.

When can I expect to have internet?
