One of the downsides to moving house is the complete loss of internet access for an extended period. Yes, technically, you can get it switched over seamlessly. In my case, though, the previous tenant hadn’t even cancelled his phone service, so it’s been a lot more long-winded and painful. I should have a phone line again by Wednesday (after 3 calls to BT, the last of which took 20 minutes). 48 hours after that, I’ll be able to order ADSL, the provision of which takes five working days.
