i recently ordered fttp broadband from bt and it is planned to be installed on the 15th. Was just wondering does the box need to be installed next to the phone socket? or can it be installed upstairs in a totally different room, i play call of duty professionally and finally was able to get fttp in my area and made the upgrade.
Technically on a Standard Installation the Engineer is supposed to run the Fibre Cable next to the existing Copper Cable and fit the ONT next to or as close to the NTE as possible, power outlets depending.
Although most Installation Engineers will be accommodating and install it where you want within reason.
It will be a different cable.
As the master socket has nothing to do with FTTP then you can ask for the ONT to be placed anywhere. It is up to the install engineer if he/she will do so or not.
Yeah they will have to run the fibre optic cable along the copper cables right? But will it matter if I ask them to install my hub upstairs and the master socket is downstairs
No, it will be a completely separate cable. Are you getting digital voice, if so your copper cable will no longer be needed at all.
