NEWS: Openreach changes policy on DACS removal
Today brings some good news for those people who in the past have tried to
get broadband and were refused it, due to a line sharing device (commonly
called a DACS).
Openreach the business division within the BT group that maintains the local
loop has revised its planning policies with regards to DACS units.
Previously if you ordered broadband, or a new PSTN line with the requirement
for broadband, any line sharing device would only be removed if the cost to
do so was under £1000.
NOTE: This refers to cost to Openreach, not a price that was ever charged to
the member of the public. A new policy has been circulated to members of the
Openreach division, that it will now remove DACS units for broadband order,
if a PSTN line is ordered specifically for broadband use, or is an LLU
order, even if the cost is over £1000 per line. In cases where the costs are
very high, then it may take longer than usual week or so remove the DACS
unit as authority to proceed with the work is obtained from higher
