      Extending my phone line

      HI
      I am looking to get sky bb, Currently i am with ntl bb and my phone line is with bt so the bb has its own line.
      the phone line that comes in to my house is a wire with 2 cores. This goes in to the main socket downstairs.
      can i extend this by using a 2 core wire, making a junction at where the wire from the outside pole comes in to the main socket downstairs and bringing a wire upstairs.
      will this give a better connection than running an ready made extension lead through the house??

      thanks to who ever can help

      Re: Extending my phone line

      The key is to use twisted pair cable for any extensions, either CW1308 telephone cable or CAT5 ethernet cable. Your master socket (NTE-5) should have a removable section on the bottom. This removable faceplate has the terminals for connecting any extensions. You must connect the extensions to these terminals not the back of the box in order to ensure that you have basic lighting protection (Spark gap in the back of NTE-5) and so you can easily disconnect extensions for testing by taking the faceplate off.
