Two internet providers on same landline

First Timer

Hi guys. I just moved to UK one month ago, in Crowborough.

I live in a share house with other people from my work place.

The thing is.. we already have a landline and an internet provider... The router is in someone room... The signal is pretty bad for me.

I would like to make a contract with Talk Talk and have my own router in my room.. so i could connect my laptop via etheret cable...

My question is... can i have two internet providers on the same landline? I'm so confused about how the landline works in UK ... Please help me

Hi aerohs 


You'll not be able to multiplex two Internet Providers onto the same landline. But you can ask TalkTalk to install a new Openreach landline for you subject to the approval of your landlord.


Or you could consider installing an Ethernet cable to your room from the router or a Wi-Fi extender. You could consider a whole home Wi-Fi Mesh network to get better Wi-Fi reception for the whole household.
