Broadband installation times can vary depending on a number of factors. One of the most significant causes of delays is if an engineer needs to visit to install a new cable and other hardware.
Typically a new internet connection will take two weeks to be set up. BT advertise 10 days. If you need a phone line to be activated or hardware to be installed this can take longer. Virgin Media offer a self-service 'QuickStart' where they send you a SuperHub in the post 'in as little as 4 days' from the time you take your contract out with them. If QuickStart isn't an option it can take significantly longer.
