BT Additional Socket ? ? ?

Can someone tell me how much does it cost to get an additional socket installed from BT? I'm currently using an extension and no longer want the wires being all cluttered and prefer just to have another socket upstairs.

Yes but it's because i want my router to be closer to the plug socket rather than having my router in the middle of no where,

Ive brought up an extension through the roof into the upstairs room, the telephone socket doesnt go any further, so i have to use a 10m rj11 cable the socket which runs behind my cupboard, and then i have my router in a weird place which make it look messy,

ive got a telephone base, fax machine, voip adaptor and router just lying on the floor so i cant tuck it under the bed or anything

well, it would be good to use, but the problem i am having is that if i had a telephone socket which was located more close to my mains socket i wouldnt have to run extensions that causes the clutter., i can jsut barely bring my rj11 cable behind the cupboard to reach my router, so it's a hastle to get to my router when i need to reset it, or turn it off.

And plus with my other devices that run from the router doesnt help either because of all the wires.

There are loads of ex BT engineers everywhere that would do it for £30 or less, ask around. Or do it yourself and one of them on here can talk you through the last bit. The hassle is feeding the wire from A to B neatly. Connecting up either end is only a ten minute job. My husband does extensions for my friends and doesn't charge.

As mentioned try to use a ethernet cable instead you wont drop any speed that way

It's £125, and each additonal socket on top of that gets cheaper. Don't know ehere you got that price for. BT charge you a call out chargem then an hourly rate when the fault is proved to be within your remit. Just because BT charge £125, talk talk may charge 150 and sky may charge 100, Openreach charges a fee then the service providers may top it up or make nothing.
Look for telephone engineers on gumtree, or setmyrate. I'll be doing extensions from March (took my bit).

If done correctly your speed shouldn't drop at all, remember the signal has potenitally just travelled 5km through cables that could be over 100 years old in places. An extra 20m of twisted copper pair will make little difference
