      Will I get connected to cabinet if I get a new line?

      Hello Folks,

      I've got a (silly?) question.

      although sky fibre is available in my area I cant get it since I am connected directly to the exchange!

      Now my question is that if I get a new line installed at my home (so that I have two telephone lines), will the new line come from the FTTC enabled cabinet or that too will come from the exchange?

      please advise.
      cheers!

      IIRC OR are looking into this situation. Your new line would be EO too I would imagine, the issue is there is no copper from the cab to your property.

      As RUNITDIRECT has said, it's unlikely. They'll be no ducting to carry the copper line from the cabinet to your home. For second line installs, OR tend to just take a pair from your existing set to create the new line - a new copper line is not fed through.
