Re: Telephone Socket Removal

If it isn't the master socket, it is entirely your responsibility to do whatever you like with it

Re: Telephone Socket Removal

Is the bedroom socket a master NTE or an extension?  Is your "line" a traditional copper one or do you have Digital Voice?

Re: Telephone Socket Removal

So could i just cut this and every other telephone socket would work and would it not give me a shock if i cut it.

Re: Telephone Socket Removal

Can you post a photo of it here please? There are several versions of the master socket (which you certainly should not cut) depending on when it was installed.

Re: Telephone Socket Removal

Master socket (like mine) by the look of it.  

The master socket is the one that will feed any extension sockets.  BT says:  It's always best to connect your BT Hub to the master socket if you can. This is where the broadband signal is strongest, before it goes through any other home wiring.

Not to be tampered with really.

Other, more technical members may be able to offer further advice.

Re: Telephone Socket Removal

That is a main socket however although there are wires connected on the "output" there are no wires connected on the input. Suggest you find out where that cable goes to in your house and disconnect there before removing that socketm
