The cable that enters your home from the phone poles contains is just an outer cable as within this is approx. 30 coloured strands/cables with some taken up with telephone services and some ASDL and some just their as spares. it is these that are separated at the exchange boxes to whatever services you have with your supplier.
When we had our module office constructed in our garden we looked at various options and one was a separate business line to the office alone with separate fax line. All the engineer would do would be to connect the office to our existing phone box to our house (so we only had 1 outer cable to the property) and then connect the inner strands to new numbers at the exchange. but this would mean we we have to pay residential line rental and then 2 business line rentals, so the cheaper option was just to change the phones services to business phone services with business broadband services and then just get an extension to the office.
