Hi there @TomG1989
I would recommend having a look at FTTP Install and the option for I live in a house where there is no Openreach Modem installed. Note that I beleve the process is now in 1 stage not two.
Additionally from the same page:
If we need to visit, the engineer will recommend where to put the equipment, but it will speed up your installation if you think about where you want it to go.
Things to bear in mind when considering where's best for your equipment:
Part 5 may or may not help you.
You maybe able to have them install the equipment near to your TV based on Part 4.
I am sure anyone who has had it installed maybe able to give you more info.
The install tech will ask you first where you want things, he/she will try to do what you need or advise accordingly. They won't just slap it in and you're stuck with it.
Explain to him/her what you want, they're a good bunch and will do their best for you.
"Legacy" FTTP is what Openreach engineers refer to as the the way FTTP was supplied originally in a 2 stage process.
Now it's done all in one with no customer splice point on the exterior wall.
Is there an external wall behind your TV? If not and you want the ONT behind it then they’ll have to run the cable over skirting boards and around door frames. You’re best of having your NTE next to the ONT as well otherwise you’ll have a secondary cable trailing to the window ledge your sockets currently on.
It’ll look like **bleep** but to be honest I’ve found people are happy to do it if it means they can sit there running speed tests constantly and it be faster than they’re used to.
There are plenty of those. Not just with BT but all ISP's. The "I want what I pay for" types when their service isn't actaully actually affected but for the speed test result.
It also takes engineers away from those with a genuine problem.
