Recently we moved house and yesterday (21st) was the go-live date for our new line and new package.
The Openreach engineer installed our new line but said there may be a fault between the telegraph pole and the fibre cabinet, and that BT would have to follow up if that was the case, but to plug our hardware in anyway and see if the link comes up over the next few days
I plugged in the modem and surprisingly I actually got a solid DSL light straight away, and it turns out I can actually ping Google from my machine in the terminal, which says to me that there is a working line and connection.
However, when I try to access any web pages through a browser, I get redirected to an error page saying "Broadband service not enabled. Contact provider for activation date."
Later on in the evening I got the "There may be a small delay in getting you set up" email but no explanation.
Is this something that can be resolved at TalkTalk's end? Do I need to do anything?
Also, FYI I am still using a separate BT Openreach separate modem and router as we never received anything newer (we've been with TalkTalk for years now). But surely this shouldn't affect anything as it's been working fine before the move.
Any advice appreciated!

I'm really sorry to hear this.
Can I just check, is the telephone number in your Community Profile the number for your new address? (please do not post the number on this thread)
