FTTC Installation Question


[link to this post]
 
I currently live in a 1930s semi in SW London (Ewell exchange) and am considering switching to a FTTC connection. I'm not sure if the way my phone line is wired into the house is "standard" and therefore if it isn't would I need to pay an additional installation charge for FTTC - I should say that my current ADSL2+ connection works fine.

Thanks in advance for your help.

My current set up is a follows:

1. Black BT phone cable enters the house into the garage
2. The black phone cable goes into a small white box on the garage wall and out of it comes a normal white internal telephone cable
3. This cable goes through a hole in the wall to my hall and into a "BT Openreach" standard faceplate (if you take the front off there is the 'test' socket).
4. There are no other phone sockets working in the house

From your brief description it seems 'normal'

Even it it weren't normal you still shouldn't have to pay any extra to have it made so.

No, AIUI, if they need to do any changes to their system, that is included in the install. They will here, as we don't have a modern master socket. So he will need to install one - hopefully where I would like it.

Great, thanks. Just wanted to double check - I had expected to see the black BT cable feed my master socket direct, seeing it go via a white box in my garage threw me.
