Line install, and possible FTTC


[link to this post]
 
Good Afternoon,

I am posting in here yet again, with another question.

Here is my present situation: I have Virgin Media (Fibre - If you can call it that) and want to eventually move to a BT Wholesale based FTTC package, but here is the issue, I don't have any land line. So here are my 2 questions:

Can I get a BTW land line installed without affecting my existing VM service? Once the land line is installed how long would my address take to show up on the BT DSL checker?

Thanks in advance smile

CJT.

I had a BT line and a cable line (in the pre-VM days) for several years, they are totally unrelated.

Ah amazing! Because I don't have a BTW line at the moment I cannot 100% check speed estimates.. so that's good to know.

Do any neighbours have a BT line? Would give a very good likely estimate to work from.

One further question:

As it's a "new" install of a service (land line) would an Openreach engineer need to attend?

Err, you've already stated there is no line at the property, so it would seem a given that an Openreach engineer would have to visit to install a line to the property.

Apologies when I mean "no line" it may have previously been connected to the BTW network, but when I moved in it was with Virgin Media. I have a NTE5 (but with a VM Faceplate).

Would they still need to visit?

Sorry again.
