      Moving around

      Hello,

      I've been with Sky for 2 year's now and my router has always been on the ground floor but recently I've done a room out and I wanted to move my router upstairs

      So my question(s) are...
      Would I be able to get another phone socket fitted on the upper floor and use that with a micro-filter for the router,

      Would Sky be able to fit the socket if possible?

      And would my speed drop?

      Thank you in advance
      Danny.

      You could, but it wouldn't be the best option.

      Sky won't book Openreach to fit extension sockets. You could do it yourself or get an independent engineer or the like to do it.

      Quite likely, yes.

      Your best option would be to leave the router at the master socket and either go wireless, use a longer ethernet cable or invest in homeplugs.

      Looks like longer ethernet cables Can't run a server off wireless it just wouldn't be right
