Default How can I find out who my broadband provider is

Hi,

Basically I've moved into a rented flat and tried to get broadband sorted. However the previous tenants have not cancelled their BT line or broadband. I can sort out the BT line but need the mac address to change the broadband to whatever I want. So how do I find out who is currently providing the broadband?

If I connect up my old wireless modem, can I somehow get connected to whatever broadband provider is supplied to the flat.

Having said that, if you can PM me your telephone number I might be able to shed some light on which provider is enabled on your line.

Not unless you've a valid username and password and active broadband account with that company!
