      Question Phone Lines..its a mess in here

      Hi all, I wonder if anyone can offer advice?

      Over the last 10 years various providers have come and gone, BT Nynex. C+W...

      I have had phone and broadband with Sky for quite a while now and due to the above people fitting and removing boxes and cables, not to mention my own DIY attempts at extensions etc, the wiring in here is in a right mess...

      Will Sky come and fit new internal boxes and cables for my phones, broadband, Sky boxes etc F.O.C. or will I have to pay them, is there anyone else I can turn to?

      Anyone..?

      Afaik Sky wont fit internal wiring for you, they may recomend someone but more than likely they will ask you to sort it yourself.
      If you dont feel comfortable doing it yourself following the guides on here then you need to get someone to do it for you. Any competent electrician should be able to do it at a better rate than BT for example.

      Sky can request Openreach out for a socket request or replacement, but I believe you'd be looking at 99.88 call-out and 64.63 every hour of work. It'd be much cheaper following the above advice.

      DIY-it's EASY and we can help you along the way. All parts are on our website. You'd be looking at an NTE5, filtered faceplate and secondary sockets for where you want telephone points around the house. Wire it all together with CW1308 cable & away you go. If you can expand on your exact requirements we can point you in the right direction. If you can wire a plug then you can do this!
