According to the engineer that installed my FTTC you cannot have any telephone extensions coming off prior to the master socket.
I'm not sure that is correct. Maybe Zarjaz will clarify.
The cable from the pole to my house is attached to the south-west corner gable, nearest to it. Not surprisingly. From there there was an external wire round the house to the middle of the east wall, where it came in to what I thought was the master. From there one wire upstairs to a couple of extensions, and one went back out and round to the middle of the north wall and in to another extension. All sockets were LJ 2s.
A few years ago that wiring needed replacing, but the engineer told me what I thought was the master wasn't, and that it didn't need to be the first one on the incoming line so long as there was one in the circuit
. It happened to be the one on the north wall, though it then turned out that was the first one. Very strange siting, as the socket itself was, (still is though unused), in an idiotic place, preventing the back door fully opening!
The replacement cable was very helpfully
taken by the engineer along to near the south-east corner and in through a new hole in the south wall to a brand new NTE5 in the small bedroom. No extensions.
