I don't have a master socket?


[link to this post]
 
I have a patch panel in one of the cupboards upstairs and presumably no master socket?

The house has an extension in every room, hence the panel in the cupboard, how does FTTC get installed?

thanks.

If you don't have one, then BT will install a new master socket.

Thank you. Which presumably can be any one of the extensions? A master socket isn't anything special?

I remember lots of talk of master sockets and installation for the original ADSL, but by the time my exchange got enabled (my campaign, that is going back a long time!) there was nothing more required than a filter.

So where does the line enter the house? and how is it connected to the patch panel?

A master socket is something special, it is the first point on your line when it enters the house, everything else is run off after it. It is the legal split point between your wiring and BT's, BT legally own the master socket and any wiring before it.

From my research the latest broadband master sockets have built in filters and more importantly have terminals that you can run cables from to locate your fibre modem elsewhere. CAT5 cable should be used for this, it's what I've done for my existing installation and in readyness for fibre - hopefully it's correct.

Phone extensions can also be internally wired from the master socket.

usually there's a master socket next to the patch panel and you patch the phone line in as required.

That is a standard external junction box. Where does the cable from that box that enters the house actually go to? It should terminate in a master socket at some point.

The filters are in the removable faceplate that the consumer can play with.
