You've obviously never forgotten to pay a bill to them then. You
settle the bill, they switch on your phone server immediately, and you
have to wait another 48 hours for the broadband to come back online.
Too bad if you're in business and you have a legitimate billing query.

You obviously don't have to ring them as much as I do then. Lucky you.
I find the reality quite different, and I would strongly urge everyone
to get their broadband from a different provider from their line
landlord, and for extra insurance your voice carrier.
