Can I move my Master Telephone Socket


Other questions I commonly hear are;

Can I move my BT master socket

Am I allowed to move my master socket

The answer is yes.

Fixmyline are independent local telephone engineers who have been trained to BT Openreach Standards and understand the network topology from Exchange to telephone socket.

If you go to Google now and search for a telephone engineer near me or Telephone engineer [insert town – e.g Dartford, Sevenoaks, Maidstone, Canterbury etc…] - then you will see many engineers offering these services at a vastly reduced rate than your service provider will charge.

Even visiting the Openreach website directly you will not see anything that says you can’t move a telephone socket. The pdf on their website doesn’t even mention an NTE (network terminating equipment – aka telephone socket)

In addition, the boundary point of ownership clearly shows that you are responsible for any physical connections as soon as they enter the boundary of your property. The below picture has been extracted from the following link

This is what you will be charged for if you book an engineer via your ISP.

  • Your main socket, due to damage you've caused

  • Your home phone extension wiring

  • The way you've connected up your equipment

  • Interference from something else in your home, like your phone, alarm system, or a faulty microfilter

  • A faulty BT Home Hub that's out of warranty (your Hub is in warranty if you're in contract)

  • Damage caused by damp, flood, fire, or building work

  • Damage outside caused by things like broken guttering or trees

  • Telephone wires that have been accidently cut
