For largely historic reasons, my master socket is in an inconvenient position upstairs. However, I am about to have an extension built and it would be sensible to move the master socket to a location in the extension. The neatest solution in terms of being able to conceal the wiring would be if the cable itself could be installed whilst the extension is being built. I appreciate that only BT Openreach can "install" a master socket. However, would it be permissible within the rules for the builder to lay the necessary cables, leaving BT Openreach to connect them up at each end?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I would imagine that that would not be a problem as long as the correct cable was being use and the ends were not terminated so that the Openreach engineer could make the connections.
Another option may be just to run the conduit and a piece of string so that the Openreach engineer could pull through his own cable.
Thank you for those helpful suggestions. I might go with the conduit idea which enables me to define ther route whilst not doing anything that the Openreach engineer might think was his province.
