      Yes I think so Brian. Cos right now no telephone socket and no wire is running to the
      telephone socket. Just a piece of wire enter the house to a junction box and thats it.

      I shall follow your wise advice. Do you think I should take the pole out of its root and throw it away. lol No just kidding.

      If it was me I'd be up that pole and take down the overhead so the whole lot would get replaced, but dont do that you may get arrested!!
      You could ask the Openreach people if they will replace the overhead while they are at it, I would not hold out much hope, most Openreach techs hate messing with overhead lines but you might be luckly and get a masochist you have nothing to loose

      Those who wants to know if sky do install new line for new customers. yes they do.
      Sky installed new line for me for free of charge, which BT was going to charge me 124.
      Line is now active, my telephone number was ported to Sky successfully. So all seems good so far.
