BT Broadband wiring and connections

Good afternoon. I have a problem with wiring. So I got a new house and it has a installed openreach modem near my entrance door. BT modem and TV modem needs to be on the other end of the house in sitting room. Also, I have a phone line from the same Openreach box near entrance to the sitting room near TV. The problem is : I do not want wires as long as from Openreach modem to BT modem through all the hall and sitting room, because it means, that I would need to take off all of the skirts and put the wire under them. Are there any options of connecting a Openreach modem to phone line socket, which goes out near the BT modem and TV moden in sitting room?  Thanks for any ideas!

Welcome to this user forum.

I assume you have something similar to this installed?

You appear to be using the term 'Modem' for everything. If you clarify what each box is exactly it will help enormously.

So.. I have Openreach stuff installed with a phone line socket in wall, which goes out in the sitting room near TV/BT modem.

That is one of the new optical modems,

Where is that cable from the middle yellow socket going to at the moment?

It looks a mess, is that how the builders left it?

Through all of the flooring to the sitting room. 20 meters of cable 🙂

What did you mean when you said TV modem, I assume you are a BT Broadband customer with a BT Home hub on the end of the cable?

Yes. BT customer with BT Hub modem on the other end. And from the BT Hub cable goes to BT TV Box

I understand now. This is a very common problem.

What speed is your Internet connection supposed to be?

PS, you do not need the filter on the phone socket.
