2 BB Accounts - 1 phone line

  Jax1311 16:24 31 Jul 2006

Due to various reasons I have had to move back to my parents home recently. my mum has BT Yahoo Broadband. I am an AOL Platinum Broadband user. I was wondering if it possible to set up 2 BB accounts through one PC, with one phone line.

Can you not just use AOL for your emails and import your favs? That way you can 'share' the bill for the BB with only the one account.

I am no expert but I would say two BB connections to one line would be impossible, although I suppose some sort of multiplexer could be used, if that is the correct terminology.

The problem being AOL will not let me cancel as I'm still in contract, as is my mum. Therefore we are paying for 2 accounts anyway.

I would say the only option is to install a second phone line, but you may well be charged by the ISP to transfer to the new line on top of BT charges for the second line.

If it were me I would bite the bullet and pay any penalty feee to cancel one of the services, have you explained your circumstances to AOL?

Sorry to confirm - one line, one broadband account.

Even if it is possible I can`t ever seeing it working properly tend to agree with phono here, cancel one.

OK, thanks guys. You confirmed what I thought really but I thought I'd ask those that know!
