New broadband installation

Go to solution

I’m planning to install broadband soon. The incoming copper line terminates in a 60 year old terminal box. I do not have a modern master box, just a basic one supplied by BT about 15 years ago and supplied from the 60 year old terminal. 

Can broadband be installed with my existing equipment or do I need an upgrade? If the latter, will it be included in the installation package or will I be expected to pay the extra. 

Thanks

As long as there is no line noise on phone then broadband will work with existing socket using filter

The line was repaired and terminal and box sorted. Brilliant job by the engineer working in compliance with Covid restrictions. 

Broadband installed a few days later by BT and all good.

BT/Openreach have been impressive from the start.  Kudos to them.

@Diwali 

Do you want to provide feedback to Openreach?

P.S. Its just Openreach, not BT Openreach.
