The telephone wiring within my home was installed by BT years and years ago. I dont have a master socket, just a junction box and three extensions. The first extension off the junction box is a BT brand and has six lots of wires within.
I'm having problems with ADSL Max and have seen that the best reception for this type of bb connection is gained when you only have wires 2 and 5 connected.
My question is - whose responsibility is the wiring inside this little box. If BT come out to check the line is it for them to correct it or me. Or if I disconnect the other four and leave just 2 and 5 can BT say the problems were self induced and charge me £50 for coming out.
Catch 22 situation here. Would welcome your comments.
I had to call BT for complete loss of 'phone line connection. I asked about replacing the same junction box as yours. The young technician said that as I now had perfect line it may be best to leave things as they were. If you do not have the new type box then you can't disconnect your extensions from BT as thy will ask you to do if you report a fault. Because of this they will not be able to charge you even if a fault is on your extensions. Worth thinking about?
