Hi all,

I've purchased a ATA device for the purposes of getting Fusion.

It probably won't arrive until tomorrow at the earliest.

Should I order wait until the device is home and plugged in, or can I order now?

Easier to sign up once you have the VFX device, as they will need the MAC address for this. I've had customers up and running within 2-5 days, plus a few more days for the whole process to complete (i.e. the final number port). WorldxChange will handle the Telecom land-line coming to it's end, but it's best to follow up with Telecom (or other existing provider) one week later to check all is canceled.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
