I joined to get a bit of advice on a question I couldn't really find the answer to.
I have bought a house I am renovating, and I want to know whether I can run a cat5 cable instead of telephone wire from my master point (living room) to a weatherproof box outside. This would allow the BT engineer to just run his cable from the green box to my weatherproof box and join.
I didn't find any BT line of any sort at the house when stripping it out which was weird.
Is this allowed? Legally?
Or does the engineer have to run the cable himself to the master socket?
This would save me a lot of hassle, ie not having cable clipped to the wall, or having to re plaster.
Thanks a million
