I hope someone may know the answer to this, I have heard that a second line is taken from your existing line outside the house so if I wanted internet on that as well as my main line there would be a compromise on the speed as in affect I would be robbing peter to pay paul...
Has anyone heard this before and is it true ?

When you say, 'a second line is taken from your existing line outside' are you referring to a DAC's?
If you are then no, they would not put a DAC's on the line as they are trying to phase them out and that it is not compatable with ADSL.
If you requested a second line then they would just come and install one by putting up a new drop wire or maybe replace your existing one with CAD55 cable as that has 4 pairs in it.
Of course there would need to be spare E and D cables, E-side usually isn't a problem but D-sides can sometimes be harder to find.
