Can I have two broadband providers on one line?!?

I know this is a long shot (and unlikely) but does anyone know if I can have two broadband providers on one telephone line? I am on Tiscali, but my old man uses the net for work, so doesn't want to switch to another provider. Tiscali won't give me a MAC number for some reason.

So I was thinking of signing up to a new one, waiting for it to get connected and then cancel the old one(tiscali). I doubt the exchanges can handle this, but worth a pop.

btw - anyone know a provider who gives you modem access for free whilst you are waiting to be hooked up?

No. But migration should be pretty quick.

Tiscali don't do migration so there will be a period where you are without BB, for me when i switched from them to Nildram it was just over a week. And I think Nildram give you dialup access too. I think most probably do.
