I'm currently with Be and thinking of moving to Inifnity (to take advantage of the phone deals)
A bit of history first.
When I moved into this house the master socket was in the hallway. I had it moved to an upstairs bedroom to accomodate my ISDN (on contract from my previous home). The old master socket remained as a normal extension. For a few years a second phone line was added wired from the external junction box. When I first got BB (with Eclipse) the second phone line was disconnected at the exchange (I think) although the wire and socket remain.
Using the extension socket in the hallway I currently get about 10% less speed from Be than using the master directly.
If I get Infinity, will the BT engineer be able to change the hallway socket back to a master? Would I have to pay?
I would rather have the inifinity modem and HH in the hallway and use a powerline network to distribute the BB signal.
