We are extending our house and wish to move the Master Socket from the hall into one of the new rooms being built at the back.
Currently this room is under construction but we would like the cables laid (being chased into the walls and then under the floorobards, before floor goes down and plastering complete etc.
We could book an Openreach appointment to move the Master Socket, but we're not ready to lose the connection we have in the hall as the new room is not operational.
Is it best for us to lay the phone cable now under the floor to where the existing master socket is, (but not connect it yet) so the Openreach engineer can connect the wiring and move the socket at a later date, or is there a better way to sequence this?
If so what cable should we ask the builders/electrician to run from the new room back to the location of the existing Master Socket?
Or do Openreach need to use their own cable for example when wiring a Master socket, and we need to pay to have them come out twice - once to lay cable and another to come and connect it up/move the socket?
All help gratefully recieved.
Couldn't you use a conduit (eg 15mm barrier pipe @ £20 for 25m) so that the cable is replaceable?
