Broadband acnt & Anytime Dial acnt on 1 pc & Line

Ok me, I am with Wanadoo.

I currently run Anytime account dial up, but want to add a a new BBand account with same ISP new emial address on same machine.

What I want to know as I read it takes BT 10 days to fiddle about at there end. This bit where BT do something on the line at there end I worry about. My current Dial up is fine and decent connection speed for dial up 52Kbps.

So if I also go Bband route keeping the anytime and Bt fiddle about does anyone know if this will effect line quality and have a knockon effect to my Dial up ???

Shouldn't do. Most BB ISPs give you a dial up number to use in emergencies such as when the BB connection is down. I've certainly used a modem alongside a BB connection on the same line with no problems or noticeable deterioration.

Don't need to remind me, I know I worry toooo much.

Just I read old post and strange things.

Have recently moved from freeserve Anytime to Wannadao BB, had no problems should have done it ages ago. connect 576Kbps phone line working nonstop (have 2 daughters)

However when you get modem install exactly as instructed but don't bother waiting for the e-mail from wannado to tell you that your online, as soon as the both led stop flashing BB is up and running.
