Phycial line replacement cost?


[link to this post]
 
Hey,

Just wondering if anyone knows how much OR typically charges to get the physical phone line replaced from the pole into the house with new cable inside the house to the master socket?

My phone/fttc provider is Sky.

Why?

If it is faulty then, with proof, it will be replaced free. If it is not faulty, why does it need replacing?


Unless you want it to be repositioned - when there are, normally, fixed costs.

Hi,

Yes, looking to get it repositioned, right now it has to go right through the house to get to the master socket through some pretty old wiring. So i guess this would fall under master socket and line repositioning?

http://www.bt.co.uk/pricing/notifs/02-06-2009/Exch_L... gives the charges - although te ex- and inc VAT amounts do not correspond!


That one is dated 2009! There could be an update somewhere.


The latest ... http://www.bt.com/pricing/current/Exch_Lines_boo/129... Base price from BT is the same, the VAT element has increased.

Maybe, a sky high mark-up!

the NTE is openreach property so needs to be done by openreach

I asked Sky how much it would be to move my NTE from the loft into the living room below. They told me they can't organise this, and suggested I find a local ex-BT engineer to do it instead...

Sky can arrange this as its an item on the Openreach price list, just the Sky choose not to, the CS rep did not know it was an option in their system.

Plenty of people will move an NTE for you, but they are not supposed to.
