in the word "Active Landline"
is it mean
the room got phone number?
the room got a socket for asking for phone number?
Active landline just means when you plug a phone into the socket, it's not silent - there's a dial tone
but i assume that the tenant that live before me will cancel every service they got
when they leave their room.
if that case happen, it mean that i will have to ask for landline to install again, right?
which mean i have to pay some like 40-50 pound before i get one, right?
It depends really. They can move out and cancel everything. This would immediately stop outgoing calls being made but British Telecom might leave the line active for months after.
but when i try to order plus net and they ask for phone number. I choose i don't have phone number and just put post code there, choose the room number. they said their check show that there is a working phone line
at my property, and ask me that to install new phone line or take over and switch to plus net.
It's basically letting you know that right now there is an active landline at the property which you can have the plusnet services installed on probably for free.
is this phone number belong to me or to the previous tenant? or choose i ask the agency?
The number belongs to the previous tenant but it doesn't really matter.
All we care about is if there's a landline, with power and a dial tone. You get a different number even if you use the current landline.
It looks like there's an active landline there right now.
Honestly the very best way to do this is to speak with PlusNet as they can advise properly and they know all of the facts 100%. So they can definitely know if there's an active landline, prices etc.
Although I think if there is an active landline your best bet is plusnet.
If not, then go for Sky or TalkTalk if you have LLU available at your postcode. We can check this for you if necessary
