      Re: wires and socket

      Do you have a BT/BT Openreach Socket anywhere? This is what will be required for Sky Telephone & Internet.

      The Virgin telephone extension can be wired to the BT Socket, but the Virgin master socket will be wired through to Virgin's telephone network, which is a different network to what BT uses.

      Post a pic up of what you have, chances are it is a varient of the NTE5. Do you want to use it as an extension or new master?
