so i've paid bt to move my master socket to upstairs (in my bedroom), however, can i have it anywhere in my room or does it need to be next to the plug sockets?
i have a big corner desk blocking the sockets so i need to know in advance if i have to move it or not
Welcome to this user forum.
As long as you can still provide power to the BT Home hub, and the DSL lead will reach to the master socket, there should be no problem.
You can easily get leads to extend the DSL cable if needed.
Discuss the location with Openreach, when they arrive.
