switching providers


[link to this post]
 
on the day the change occurs how do you know that it is done?

Got activation email from xilo this morning but still able to connect to O2

IPStream <-> IPStream ~
Which ISP you can connect to depends upon something called SSB (Service Selection Barring). SSB and stage 1 Authentication is carried out at the bRAS, so in effect all BTw do is change on their records which ISP you are allowed to connect to. Sometimes there is a slight overlap where for a couple of days you may be able to connect to both ISPs until the migration has been fully completed.


do I just disconnect and try to connect to xilo?

Yes.

If it doesn't work, switch back for an hour or so. It's quite common for both to work for a bit, as kitz says.
