Getting a new phone line in French Satellite TV, French Internet and Telephone Posted June 16, 2007 Our renovation has at last progressed to the point where we're planning to get the phone installed. We filled in the FT subscription application by email this week and are asking for an ADSL line from the start, as we're within the required 5km from the exchange and the dslvalley website says it's disponible here. There hasn't been a phone line before to this house, though our two immediate neighbours both have phones. Can anyone suggest how long we're likely to have to wait for the line to be installed? We'll be over for the summer from July 4th and have asked for it as soon as possible after that date.
