Hello Going to change from current O2/Sky Broadband and move to PlusNet Fibre optic broadband.

This will be my first time on Fibre Optic Broadband. I have checked to see its available to our address and it is.

What I want to know is they state a engineer has to come out and fit upto a 30mtr cable from the Master Socket.

My Desktop is connected by Lan Cable in my upstairs room where my current ADSL router is very close to it and a Fixed Wall socket which is hard wired into the Master socket which is down stairs. I do not have any of these tacky make shift temp extension cables.

With my having my Router currently connected to my Socket in the upstairs room and hard wired into the downstairs master socket, am i correct in thinking the BT engineer from PlusNet will be able to just simply change the double upstairs socket as its wired corectly instead of fitting a new cable run from downstairs.

Thanks for reading and will call back in a few hours. Cheers Steven
