Re: Will digital voice work if I dont have a BT fibre connection to the internet ?

Go to solution

Thank you so much for your idea about signing up to the new provider whilst keeping BT initially.

 

This question has been raised due to deciding where the fibre connection from the new provider should go from the telegraph pole: the main house is not the nearest building and if it went first to an outside building we would then use a series of x 3 mesh systems to bounce it to the house.  To get the fibre cable to the house at a further distance may incur extra costs and disruption however it may be worth it in the end!

Yes, we are right beside THE bridge!

If the cost isn't too horrendous it would probably be best to get the fibre to the house rather than rely on mesh to do it.

I'm up by The Cross. 😉

You need a broadband connection for Digital Voice to work, as you will probably receive a router.

Thanks!

We have a County Broadband engineer scheduled to come on a visit to the property to advise  on the range of cover of their fibre so will know more then. I agree if cost not horrendous better to get it to the house first and outbuildings after.

This going off topic and not really appropriate for this forum, but if the fibre cable to the house passes the outbuilding I would take the opportunity whilst the trench was open to install another duct with an Ethernet cable between the house and outbuilding as long as it isn't more than 100Metres. Wifi wouldn't work over that distance in any case.

Thank you once again. This makes sound sense to do  if and when a trench is built to get fibre to the house. I will ask for this.
