The previous owners of our flat had a second phone line installed in a back room.
We didn't need this line so didn't take it over. The line doesn't have a ring tone at the moment.
This cables are much newer than our phone line and it has a modern socket. Our cable and socket are old in poor condition.
I have a couple of questions I hope you can help with.
Our phone line is connected to a cabinet quite a long way away but there is another just around the corner (about a third of the distance). Is it possible that the newer line could be connected to a different cabinet?
if it is on a closer cabinet, would it be difficult/expensive to get our phone number transferred to the new line? (I am thinking about FTTC here)
If it is relevant, line rental is currently with BT.
