New installation

Hi guys,

I have standard broadband and phone idue to be installed on Friday for a new build 3 floor townhouse.

There is a phone socket on the ground floor and a phone socket on the third floor.

A room on the second floor is likely to be where the computer will go. Ideally this is where I would put the hub. I was just wondering what would be required in order to put the hub in that room?

Also are there any links as to what the engineer will do on the day and how things get set up?

Many thanks

Re: New installation

With copper (standard) broadband, you can plug the hub into whichever socket you desire. If it was an Infinity broadband provide, it would have to be into the master socket. As long as that socket is correctly connected to your master socket you should be golden. Was it a home move order or a new provide?

Re: New installation

It's a new order. So would a new socket need to be put in the the room where ideally I would like the hub to go?

Neither statement are strictly true. If the standard broadband has a filtered faceplate master, the hub cannot be plugged directly into another socket and conversely, if Infinity is provided with an unfiltered master faceplate it will probably work fine in an extension socket.

 

As far as the original problem is concerned, the ideal would be to re-arrange the cabling to provide a new filtered master socket on the second floor with extension sockets on the other floors. I'm afraid I can't offer advice on what the engineer will or won't do with regard to achieving this.
