    Hopefully someone can answer this for me:

    1) I am looking to get Freeserve broadband and was hoping to plug it into an
    extension socket - will this be ok or will it need to plug into the main
    socket?

    2) What is the process for installation - will the engineer need to come
    into the house and fiddle and tweak things or is it simply a case of
    pressing some buttons at the exchange?

    Any info gratefully received...

    No engineer will need to visit. Basically ADSL is enabled on your line from
    the exchange. Then, all you need to do is plug your modem/router in to
    whichever phone socket is best for you. In EVERY phone socket you want to
    have a phone, fax, sky digibox, or normal analogue modem in to you need to
    fit a filter. This is a small device which will filter out the high
    frequency ADSL signal from your phone line and allow you to continue making
    phone calls at the same time as using the net.

    Yes you can but remember to put in the microfilers in first.
    The engineer will do his bit at the exchange, after freeserve have confirmed
    the line is working okay they will send your BB kit. Everything is external,
    no engineers will need to visit your home.
