I have jsut taken over a unit and need a line running in (literally 5 mtrs), but havespoken to TalkTalk and they recommended Post Office!?! Unfortunately, they won't install as it's not residentioal.......does this just leave me with BT? I did see an offer for BT line installation the other day but can't find it now....anybody know any others / location of that one!?

Thanks very muchly

Let me get this straight..

You already have a line but just need it extending?

You just need the line turning on?

Or you need a whole new line putting in?

If its just extending, buy and extension reel for a couple of quid and tack it around the wall, 5second job.

No, it's a new line.....sorry, The main DP (tel box) is 5 metres away from my unit....so it'll need installing, and activating with a tel no etc.

Ahh I seeee.

Right short of it is BT whole sale usally own all the boxes so its usually down to them.

However if you go through this company here Utility Warehouse they can install lines quite a bit cheaper than BT, yet they still use BT engineers (go figure)

Although another thought is what about a Mobile contract ? Do you need Broadband or fax facility or just the phone.

If its just phone and Broadband, you may find a reasonable Mobile contract that encorporates both, remember whatever or whoever fits the line your gonna have to pay £9.99 line rental every month + calls and Broadband, whereas a Mobile contract you could get all that rolled in for near enough the same price if not a damn site cheaper.

I already have a mobile (02), but it doesn't get service.......;-) v. handy. I may end up redirecting my business no (02 one) to a payg phone that has service and using it purely there......
But then i have no fax.......and i'll need to "loan" someones internet.....aaarggghhh

we had similar problems at our workplace, the people before ran up a huge bill and bt were being a nightmare about it so we just got a good mobile deal with vodaphone and got there mobile broadband ,... its worked well so far and is really quick and easy to use, it costs about £25 a month for both phone and internet but i can use it everwhere!:)
