  1. So we're getting a bit closer to making a move. As the copper line is *so* long to the area that ADSL or FTTC are pointless, I've gone down the 4g route for now. The locality is the Rural Broadband Voucher scheme but the length of the lane is probably a dealbreaker there I fear. Even if I did take a copper connection I don't believe I could transfer the current number onto it. We're currently on Newtownards exchange, the new place would be Millisle. They're both 02891 but different number ranges. I do want to keep the number regardless, I've had it for 30years and been trading from it for 20... How would one find out easily whether the number actually *could* move? Try and set up a house move and then cancel? But there's no line yet... But I think I'm more likely to just pull the number across to a VOIP service. There's a shedload of choice out there and I know nothing- is it all just re-selling? Any recommendations please? Only looking a single line, with low useage. Will be bringing the current DECT suite with us so don't need "free" phones, happy to purchase an interface. Gracias.
  2. Just getting ready to pull the cables through the comms duct to the garden room from the utilities center. (45m run ) Will be a model for the main house. So far I have: 2 x CAT 6. ( 1 for the home network and one for control systems network - somewhat experimental.) 1 x 6 core phone cable. Not absolutely required but will allow me to run a phone line down there separate from the house line. 1 x 3 core flexible to carry the smoke alarm signals from the garden room smoke alarms - not sure how to organise this electrically but 3 cores should be enough even if volt free contact. 1 x 6 core alarm cable for the intruder alarm. I wonder if I should also pull in a 4 core fibre? What have I forgotten?
  3. Looking for some advice about arranging my new connection. Have read everything I can online and so far just getting confused. I originally contacted BT who said yes they could organise the connection but not until I signed up for a phone package. Decided to go straight to OpenReach and filled in the registration form. I now have an email saying they want to charge me a non-refundable £299 to send someone out to survey the job and that they have a 25 day lead time. Is this the standard response or have I done something wrong? Can't find any info regarding this fee for surveying the job anywhere. I thought it was free up to £3400? Any advice welcome.
