We moved flats in Edinburgh a year ago and when trying to update our address we were told it doesn't exist, and they can't supply our Internet. We explained to them there was a virgin socket and they said there couldn't be.
While my girlfriend was on the phone to the agent I plugged the router in and we immediately got a connection and we have had one since.
If I was to go to a friends house and brought my router would that work too? Or is someone else paying for the Internet we're using here, and we're still paying for the Internet at my old flat?
