I paid for a brand new installation as part of that A&A connection. The OpenReach engineer installed a brand new cable from the underground distribution point to inside my house.
I think the brand new phone cable contained 2 copper pairs - would this be a fair assumption?
I then assume only 1 pair is currently used for my A&A FTTC.
If I ordered another FTTC connection with a different provider and paid for another new line installation as part of this 2nd connection, would the OpenReach engineer be able to use the other pair on the existing physical phone cable to successfully connect up the 2nd FTTC broadband?
And if so, would the performance of both broadband connections be ok or is interference between the two likely?
The ideal would be to not need to drill new holes for a potential 2nd FTTC connection.
(If it helps, the 2nd FTTC line would be with a different LLU provider - e.g. BT/Plusnet or Sky)
