      Does anyone know how much BT would charge to replace the incoming wire to my house?

      Seems previous owners tapped into the wire for an upstairs extension its always been like this but cant be good

      How do you know it was the previous owners and not BT themselves.

      I'd advise that you keep this is to your other thread or it's going to become confusing with people posting duplicate posts.

      I dont know - do you? does anyone?!?

      But its a specific question for cabling - thought someone might know on here and could be quicker to answer it.

      Althought edited as see you answered it in main thread

      So about 200 then - question to cabling experts would this have any negative affect on line attenuation etc? it doesnt look good to me but if done properly would it have big affect?

      Re: Replacing incoming BT line

      Before you involve Openreach, check that when you expose the test socket at the master, all other telephone extensions have no dial tone. If they do, then you could ask BT to rectify this as you wish to fit further extensions and you cannot disconnect your wiring. If the extensions are correctly wired, and have no dial tone when the test socket is exposed, and you have no crackel or other noise on your line when you connect a normal wired phone to the test socket, then to get Openreach to redo the joint will be expensive.
