      Re: BT phone socket.

      Valiceemo,

      From your last couple of comments, is it fair to say that you may not be entirely unfamiliar with what awaits you upon removal of skirting? Nudge-nudge

      Anyway, it was an interesting thread as it turns out

      Sure enough, but just a bit OTT. There is still the doorway to be factored in.

      It is indeed going to be a busy weekend scuubie!

      The skirting is no nailed to wall but it's (surprisingly!) not been done well! Managed to get one off tonight very easily.

      Giskard, put it this way...I'm not looking forward to the job! The light at the end of the tunnel being the prospect of fast Internet!

      With regards to the door I'll put the new cable through the same way in which the old one goes through (hopefully lol).

      That's horrible stuff to combat when trying to remove things.

      I trust that you have access to a wood plain or something similar to get rid of it for when you replace the Skirting Board.

      Sorry I've been away.
      Looks like everyone has it covered.

      Not knowing the history of your installation it's difficult to know why the BT80A/RF2 was fitted.
      It may have been all the cowboy/DIYer had in stock but being in Holmfirth (knew it well in the past) with Moorside Edge and Holme Moss not far away the telephone side of your line may have been suffering from breakthrough.

      Brian in the link I posted wouldn't have fitted an RF3 but just a standard junction box.
      I assume you have ordered an RF3.

      You didn't answer my question -- Is your incoming cable overhead or underground?

      You might want to trace it just in case there are any more junctions.

      If you are taking the skirting off under the junction box I'd be interested in see a pic if you have the time.

      Can't help thinking there is more below the surface in this story than just the wires

      Hi
      Yeah I think you ma be correct in saying that there is more to this than dodgy wiring, bit we bought the house in Dec 2009 and have only just started looking and improvements etc due to money (lack there of!) and work commitments.

      Regarding in coming wire, I'm not at home now but im 99% sure it's an overhead cable, comes down the front of the house and into front kitchen.

      Yes it is an RF3 box I've ordered.

      I will take pictures as I do the job and share with you all.
