Can anyone who installs an Openreach master socket in your home have access to your data or anything like that, I know itís a silly question but I think I have been watching too many movies.
But this week there was a man walking around our new build site and he saw that our property had cables coming out the ground near the front door and he said he would install a master socket and cover the loose wires outside up with one of them grey boxes. The only thing that raises my suspicion is that he had no branded uniform on and also his van didnít have Openreach or anything wrote on. And also at this point we hadnít ordered any internet so he wasnít sent by our provider. He said he was a contractor that was doing work on a property next to ours and thought whilst he was here he would install a master socket.The man had access to the green cabinet up the street I have seen him there.
