Can I order?


[link to this post]
 
2 more FTTC connections with you? Is that allowed? Each with it's own account of course.

And also do I have to take the router you supply? I have 1 but also the load balancer I use has PPPoE in it anyway and so my current account is running with just the OR modem.

Not sure if it's possible. Virgin said no to having another line in here even though I have the connections for it.

Plusnet say NO to 2 x FTTC with the same company. The only way to order new line from ex-bt engineer (half price) and (cheaper) then order FTTC from other isp and bonding together, job done!

i thought it was only £50 to have a line put in with PN?

Hmm really? They say no? I'd best call them tomorrow. After all there are many businesses out there with more than 1 line, so they are all "illegal"?

"so they are all "illegal"?

This suggests they are breaking the law. Maybe it's just company policy.

okay so maybe they are breaking such company policy?

virgin call it " illegal" if you have 2 in the same house , which they don't anymore but they used to as I had a lodger who had one and I had to sign a wayleave agreement - but I was told " oh no that's illegal that's got to come out" but agreed they didn't mean in a criminal offence way.

Never in the 3 years I worked there did I see the business team turn someone down for wanting more than 1 line. It's possible things have changed and therefore it's rather sad but i'll call them later and ask. Interesting though.

It certainly seems a bit strange IF any telephone company is actually saying you can't have more than 1 line into a house. I used to have 2 lines - the original, used for normal telephone service, and the second line used for dial-up Internet which was in use most of the time when 'unlimited' dialup became available from a few ISPs.

There are several reasons why someone might want an extra line or more, e.g. alarms, faxes, or dare I say it extra telephones!

Virgin don't do FTTC. AIUI 2 x VM Cable isn't possible as there is only one supply at the street end.

Pardon? How would that work unless the engineer has cabinet and/or exchange access? Even then it wouldn't create a PSTN connection.
