If you mean "can I get broadband by plugging my modem/router into another socket in the house other than the BT master socket" the answer is yes.

If you don't mean that, kindly explain

I know several people who use the "3" pay as you go dongle as they do not have heavy internet use.

think about a dongle as pine man said, another advantage is you can use it on the move too and not tied to your H/A.

Sorry let me explain i have a very old bt master socket, i just need to know can i get broadband from the BT master socket - LJ 2/1A socket.

click here

and look under No NTE5 Master Socket?

I have an external wiring going into it from the loft which i presume would be the telephone line

Yes you can get broadband from the BT master socket - LJ 2/1A socket

LJU Master sockets are usually easily identifiable as the line jack unit will contain a ring capacitor, surge arrestor & resistor.

Note: when I moved house last nov that is the set up that I got. Applied for TalkTalk to be transferred to new house and they sent BT Outreach to check the line first and engineer installed a NTE5 A Master Socket for me (I didn't have to pay for it)

Hope that helps you
