The reason I am asking is because I still have the original wiring in my house from when my parents got the phone line installed over 40 years ago. (All BT did was take a spur from the old junction box and added a modern socket) The socket is also very badly located right next to my electric cooker. BT want £130 to move the existing socket, so I am wondering if I would be better waiting until Infinity becomes available in my area, rather than part with more money to BT
Don't pay BT, just move the socket yourself. They are really not that hard to do.
or just grap a rj11>rj45 converter and run cat 5 up to your pc or outher convinent place
If/when you have Infinity installed the Openreach engineer will generally be accommodating to requests such as this (provide lots of tea) but failing that they'll run a data extension cable and locate a dedicated VDSL socket to a location within 30 meters.
