Is it possible, if so how?

We had our new install from telegraph pole to a 'master socket 5c' with a 'mk 4' faceplate.

This provides both a socket for telephone voice and a socket for broadband via our new super hub

Question:

Is it possible to duplicate this arrangement about 10 metres away. Ideally by somehow wiring from the 5c/ mk 4 to another  5c/mk 4 in a better location? I obviously don't want to move the current 5c/mk 4 because I would have to pay to do that. Also it suits me to be able to plug one phone into this original 5c/mk 4.

My intention would be to plug another phone AND the bt super hub modem/router into the extension 5c/mk 4 in the better location

i.e.

current dropwire---->current master socket 5c/mk4 (with phone plugged in) ---->proposed 5c/mk 4 ( with super hub and phone plugged in)

Any help gratefully received.

And thanks again to this excellent forum.

No, can't be done,  the Mk4 faceplate filters the broadband and phone.

You can wire to an extension socket from the data terminals on the master socket and then use a conventional filter at the extension to plug in both phone and router.

Thanks licquorice.

Would it be possible from the A and B on the 5c to the A and B on the extension 5c? Then it wouldn't be filtered.

@robartist 

No, that is not the correct point.

See https://www.openreach.co.uk/orpg/home/helpandsupport/how-toguides/howtoguides/downloads/NTE5C_Instru...

Connect the data extension as shown here.

Thanks Keith

I don't know anything about this but I thought that the connection you highlight ONLY sends data. Not voice and data.

So, if I wanted a distant sockets with voice and data then I would only have data if I connected to the point you show.

Or am I completely wrong?

 

Thanks again

Re: Is it possible, if so how?

You should get voice and data at that point, just as @licquorice  mentioned.

Its simply a point just before the filter, but after the test socket. You will need to split the voice and data at the far end, using a microfilter. You would then plug the BT Home Hub, and your phone, into the microfilter.

You must not connect to the a & b at the back, as that is on the external network side, before the test socket.

You are completely wrong. It will be an unfiltered signal, voice and data.

You are completely wrong. The data extention would be unflitered providing phone and data connection that's why @licquorice stated use a normal filter for the phone.

Re: Is it possible, if so how?

Thanks everyone.

So, is this correct.

telegraph pole---> master socket for both voice and data (5c/mk4)

then using A & B on back of faceplate (mk 4) take a cable to my 'extension point'

IF I wanted to use a 5c/mk 4 as my extension point would I wire into the back of that extension on the incoming A & B in the 5c?

Thus giving me phone and data at my extension point?

 

Many thanks

Re: Is it possible, if so how?

No, you shouldn't have 2 master sockets on one line. You need an extension socket, master sockets have additional circuitry
