FTTP installation, moved master socket

Hi Folks,

When we bought our house (new build) some years ago the master socket was in the hall just inside the front door - an utterly useless place as the hall is nothing but a narrow corridor and there was nowhere to place our SmartHub. We paid for a BT engineer to move the master socket to our 1st floor study where we could plug the Hub directly into it.

I'm about to pull the trigger on upgrading to FTTP. Will the new position of our master socket cause us issues with the installation?

Thanks

Re: FTTP installation, moved master socket

The position of your master is totally irrelevant for FTTP. However, the ONT (fibre modem) will need to connect to your hub via Ethernet so you need to give some thought to the proposed positioning of the ONT and where the fibre cable will enter your house.
