@Eradication 

Who provides your phone service?

Extension sockets are the responsibility of the customer.

You can ask Openreach to come and see to this. They will raise a call out charge (£140.00) and a cost for each extra socket required (£75.00). So clearly it is better to do it yourself (you can buy kits, DIY store etc) or request someone else do it for you. My local free paper always caries adverts by 'retired telecoms engineers' who will do this type of work. And presumably not charge £140.00 call out. Please be aware also that not all types of broadband will allow connection through an extension socket.

Indeed. Same in my area. Extension sockets should be a doddle for the BT and other similar telecoms pensioners.

Re: A 2nd Socket in the property.

What are you trying to achieve by having another socket installed? I assume you want to move your home hub to a new location?

You can only have 1 router on your broadband line
