Hi all, not sure this is in the correct topic.... Im trying to get a telephone line into our new build but rather than a simple job it seems to be quite a challenge. We want an underground cable. I've got duct laid down to the front of the plot but external to our property it would need to pass through a track which has services running at 90deg to the duct. Where it crossed the track its actually council verge (that the track runs over). I've spent an hour on the phone and aren't any the wiser as to how I go about this. Does anyone know? I thought that openreach would give me a price for running the duct into the property along with the line and then I find a phone provider...... obviously not. Any help gratefully received CC
We want to hardwire our televisions to the internet to stream Netflix and whatnot, and our electrician has recommended Fibre Optic cabling which carries a lot more data than Cat 5 or Cat 6 http://www.datalight-system.com/en/home/. Has anyone used this and is it worth the money? The cables are fancy conduits so we can use them to run other wires through also whilst plugging straight into them. This will feed internet to TVs, wifi boosters, and data to CCTV, speakers and the printer in our home office.
I am looking for a new TV / Broadband / Phone setup. Currently I am on a Virgin package with lots of TV, theoretically very High Speed Broadband, and inclusive weekend / evening phone calls. We are generally happy with our mobile phone setup. Currently I am with Virgin and could price-match them into taking a few ££ off, but really the performance is poor and intermittent, and I want to move. Our requirements are: decent Internet, Freeview type selection of TV channels, and phone with inclusive weekend / evening calls. We cannot get a good signal for Freeview (tried that first). However, following the neighbour's removal of a couple of trees, we can now have a satellite dish. Suggestions, and also comments on Now-TV, would be welcome. Ferdinand
