I am considering upgrading to BT Full Fibre and have a few concerns about the installation.
My house is 25 years old, I am at the front of estate and all the services are underground. Across the street from me is the BT green box, it had an additional box added to the side of it a few years ago.
How would BT get the FTTP cable into my house? Under the stairs is my BT master socket and also my fuse box which has a conduit coming up in it (i.e. all in the middle of my house). Can BT push another cable through somehow and bring it out at the current master socket? I want to have some idea of how much tearing up BT would have to do prior to signing up for anything. The one potential good point is that the master socket is on a wall that backs onto an integral garage and I expect that would be an easy route to come in from.
I am also quite precious about my landline phone number, a friend who worked for BT years ago got me an easy to remember number. If I do migrate to BT FTTP I believe I can take that number with me but what I am concerned about is if I subsequently leave BT will I be able to move it back to a normal phone line again - I realise this is a bit of a 'what length is a piece of string' question but maybe it is a case of once I start on this path there will be no coming back!
