      Iím currently with virgin media (cable) and soon BT will be installing a new line for sky talk and sky broadband unlimited.

      BT will install a new master socket, they will not connect to the virgin sockets already there assuming those are the sockets in your ppicture.

      If not then the main line should go directly to the master socket and then from there to the other sockets, not be split at the junction box to a second socket first.

      The sasy soloution if this is the BT setup is to remove the wiring for the socket connected to the junction box completely.

      Ideally the new master should replace the junction box, if not then replace the existing master, in this case the extension bottom left in your picture should NOT come from the junction box but wire back to the master.
