I currently do not have a BT Master socket. Instead, some ancient BT wiring on an old connector. I wish to have a BT master socket installed and the main phone line entering the house through a different wall. I assume this is something that an Openreach engineer needs to do?
Is this arranged via Talk Talk?
What is the likely cost?
How long is the likely wait time to arrange this?

Sometimes it can be weeks but it all depends on the availability in your area. If you would like to go ahead with this then please let us know and we can confirm some details with you so we can pass this over. You would be then be contacted by a dedicated team who will go over some dates with you.

I'm sorry but it's difficult to say how long the wait time is in your area as LVRs are treated as lower priority than repairs, we would only really know when we book the engineer

Thanks for your help. I have updated my profile
I do not wish to arrange the appointment today, but please can you give me an idea of the likely wait time in my area for an appointment?

This is classed as a LVR (Low Volume Request) to re-locate your main socket and this would be chargeable. Please let us know if you would like to go ahead with this?
Openreach engineers can also install and replace main phone sockets if requested. This is chargeable at £128.40.
