Can I Remove An Old Bt Point?

Recommended Posts

As I say, the thing is sited in my front porch and the wiring and box itself has been painted over the years and it's very unsightly.

I plan to build a walk in cupboard in front of it eventually so it will be partly hidden anyway, but I'd rather get rid of it altogether now as I'm doing some major renovation work..

I'm on Virgin media and don't plan on ever using BT. However, I've heard it's illegal and BT have to do it. Is this true?

Thanks in advance.

If it's inside your property then it's probably not illegal. If you don't get caught then what's going to happen anyway? I'd just rip it out and be done with it.

Apparently you can get a small electricity supply from a BT line.

Why not hook up a small lamp to it, then sit back and enjoy your ingenuity?

Connect it to the mains and pump 250 volts down it. They'll probably come and take it away if you do that.

:lol:
