I just wanted someones advise, and I apologise if this has been asked before. Feel free to point me in the direction of the relevent post.
Two friends of mine are wanting to get Broadband at their flat, however there maybe a stumbling block.
They are both on a budget (as we all are) and need to avoid any charges for the installation or that arise from the installation.
After having a brieft chat with someine from Orange he pointed out that if the line at the property was not connected it would cost them £60 to have it connected.
So my question is: How do you establish if it's connected or not? Just to point out when I say connected I mean to the exchange, there is NO service at this time, as they do not rent a line from anyone.
I did connect a corded phone to the master socket, and got what can only be described as the "unobtainable" tone after about 1-2 seconds of silence.
Would this indicate that though the line is not "live" it IS connected to the exchange?
I appreciate any help given, and I apologise for the long post.
