      Finally, I'm in the 21st Century!

      Engineer arrived this morning at 8:05 , by 8:35 he had moved my master socket to the living room from the hall, sorted out the cabinet and installed Sky Fiber.
      The difference is massive!! Ive been stuck with1.5-2mb broadband for the past 5 years , the Mrs complaining when shes trying to work from home and Im wanting to have a quick blast on the PS3. Did a few speed checks and my speed is ranging from 37.4mb to 38.5mb depending on which way the wind is blowing.
      I noticed a 1GB update for BF3 last night so I thought I would test out the fiber with it this morning , the update was complete in less than 10 minutes.
      All in all a very happy punter.

      All these people that are having their master sockets moved from the hall into the living room im asuming have their line coming from a pole to their home and bt is just re-routing the drop wire and making a new entry point into the living room ?
      My master socket is also in the hall with no power socket but the line is underground from the cab to the property and comes in from under the front outbuilding/shed so im guessing moving my master socket is not an option

      It depends on how your internal wires are, my master socket is in the hallway but providing your other extentsions feed to the back of the master socket it is just a case of the engineer twiddling. If you have no other internal wires/sockets in your home they can just run an extension cable to your new location from where the old master socket was. I think it depends more on the location of your sockets rather than how the wires get to your house.

      As above , my house is a new build with the living room on the 1st floor. The engineer just blanked off the master socket and made the other extension socket in the living room (the next one in the change) the newmaster socket. Took him about 2 minutes.
