Le Stu Posted July 31, 2009 Report Share Posted July 31, 2009 Is that true?On a similar note, I looked at BT's website yesterday, and the connection charge is about 120 for a new line, which I was kind of expecting through past dealings with BT, but my wife was speaking to a couple of BT engineers that happened to be doing a bit of work on our road yesterday, and because of our location (middle of nowhere), they seemed to think it could cost up to 1000 to get a phone line (due to it being underground cabling or something), despite the fact there's a house directly across the road, because they have to go under a road or something. Just wondering if anyone has any experience of this?That's correct. I was contracting for Openreach a while ago and learned that when they install new duct, cable etc. the costs are entirely born by whoever makes the initial order. However, I would check to see if that really is the case in your particular situation. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
