      Question Faulty Wiring

      Hello,

      I hope someoen can offer me some badly-needed advice.

      After many calls to Sky Technical Support, it would seem that I have some faulty internal wiring. Sky tell me that they wont/can't do anything about it. Can someone tell me who I could approach to completely lay new wiring?

      Many thanks for any help given.

      You are responsible for the maintenance of the telephone wiring after the Master or Test socket. Your call provider is responsible fro the wiring between the Master/test socket and the telephone exchange, but Sky has to engage the services of BTO.

      If you have a known fault then sadly this means that you will have to engage the services of a local contractor.

      Whilst in some cases the call providers may get BTO out to fix it, the costs would be quite high compared to a local contractor. Alternatively you are free to do this work yourself.

      Fit and use a filtered master socket and that will isolate any dodgy internal wiring.
