    I've been told by freeserve that my line is finally clear for ordering with
    another ISP, but when I've gone to the eclipse web site to order, it says an
    order has already been placed on the line.

    I've had loads of problems with freeserve for about 2 months and I don't
    believe them, and I'm used to getting nothing done from them time after
    time. Is there anything I can do to check?

    Well, you might try another ISP, like plusnet, and see what they say.
    You probably won't feel like entering 'mauve' into the box for the
    person that referred you to plusnet.

    I wonder about phoning BT.
    IPstream 500 (or whatever) appears on the bill.
    Might they be able to tell you the current status, even though it's
    normally dealt with by the ISP.

  3. Hi,

    You can check www.bt.com/broadband if there's broadband still on the line
    it'll say something like

    "If you have an existing Broadband ADSL service and wish to change Service
    providers then please contact both your new and existing Service Provider
    to have this service transferred."

    in a note at the bottom of the result page. It can sometimes take a few
    days for all the databases to update to show that ADSL is no longer on the
    line after a cease has complete.
