Holy crap. When I added my second line I think the install was US$125
(to fiddle with the then-unused pair of wires in the wall outlets).
Are you out in EBE (East Bumfuk Egypt) or something?

It says 124.99 here
<http://www.productsandservices.bt.com/consumerProducts/displayProduct.do?productId=CON-14165>

Have you asked other telephone companies?

Have you looked into GPRS over the mobile phone system? Satellite?
Cable?

I think you're flogging a dead horse here mate. The OP doesn't exactly
strike me as a 'can-do' sort. He's been offered so many ways around this
challenge and always comes back with why each suggestion won't work rather
than saying 'I haven't tried that yet, I'll give it a go'.

He seems to be one of those negative people who look for problems in
solutions rather than solutions to problems.

Unlike some of us (TINW) he seems to me as definitely NOT being
solution-oriented.

The 1600 is to physically run another line the 2 miles from the exchange -
otherwise there is no spare capacity....

Cable is not on as we are not cabled - hell, we haven't even got gas! GPRS
and Satellite are horrendously expensicve compared to normal broadband...

You betcha. Simplest, quickest way to find out what service is running
on a port, & what software it's running on. Plus, no big, crappy,
buggy application program between you & the protocol.
If you need to script it, or to make a quick & dirty daemon, you use
Netcat instead.
