The router has been recommended on another site. I might give it a try and see what it is like. But generally I will leave the setup as per my sig and just change username and password.

In the unlikely event that there is need for remote monitoring of your line it's probably a good idea to initially make sure that the supplied TTB modem/router connects OK and then keep it in reserve.

Good idea. It's a managed install so Engineer may ask for it anyway to test.

I think TalkTalk modem/routers have basically "plug and play" authorization and only need a wireless setup? Hopefully it should also be straight forward when you revert to your current modem/router kit.

Looks like it will be a very successful migration and I wish you well smile

Everything seems to be progressing. Got my go-live confirmation and TTB have set up a direct debit on my account. Wish OFCOM hadn't slowed the process down with a cooling-off period.

The cooling off period is one of the few ways to stop slamming or mistaken orders in a gaining provider led process. Otherwise I could go and sign up to a service at your address and it would just happen without you having the opportunity to stop it.

You could still sign up for me but it would just take longer. Don't see how two weeks breathing will stop slamming.

Quite a few years ago I was getting my ADSL BTw broadband from Tiscali and line rental from BT retail. I was notified (perhaps warned?) by Tiscali that TalkTalk would be taking over the line because Tiscali were ceasing broadband provision in the UK. Rather than risk the chance of TalkTalk full LLU (my exchange was TalkTalk LLU enabled at that time) I got a MAC (Migration Authorisation Code) from Tiscali and migrated to another BTw broadband provider. If I hadn't got a MAC and migrated then I could have been automatically transferred to TalkTalk full LLU without my specific authorisation for the move.

A "sorry you are leaving" email and/or letter from the losing provider seems OK, if one is intending to migrate these days, but I do like the idea of the additional requirement for a MAC as well.

BTW I was a very satisfied Tiscali ADSL customer at the time and it was a pity that I had to move frown

When I have been on BT based services I have had slowdowns at peak times. Not sure how it is now but in the last 3 years on Uno TTB backhaul I have been testing every hour and no peak slowdowns so either no one in my area is on TT or there is enough capacity to cope. I am hoping going with TTB directly will be the same. The TTB salesman was giving me the spiel about no slowdowns and I said I know, I have been testing a TTB line for the last 3 years. laugh
